Tolko Industries’ kraft paper mill in The Pas, Manitoba, will receive $2.26 million in funding under the Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program to improve the mill’s energy efficiency and increase renewable energy production. The alterations to the power and recovery boilers will promote better fuel combustion.

The new equipment will increase the production of thermal energy from wood waste and black liquor by close to 114,000 gigajoules a year. This increase will reduce the mill’s need to use fossil fuels to compensate for renewable energy shortfalls, lowering the mill’s greenhouse gas emissions by around 10,000 tonnes per year.
