A Port Hawkesbury Paper executive says Nova Scotia’s forest industry must focus on investment and innovation after the closure of Northern Pulp.

According to The Canadian Press, Allan Eddy, manager of business development at Port Hawkesbury Paper – now Nova Scotia’s only operating paper mill – spoke at the industry’s annual general meeting on Feb. 12.

Eddy cited new projects – such as a proposal for a wind farm on the Port Hawkesbury Paper site – as a way forward for the industry.

He also indicated that Port Hawkesbury Paper has increased its chip volume since Northern Pulp’s closure to try to support the industry, but that it can’t match what was used by Northern Pulp.
