At our mill operations, we have conducted internal R&D projects and have worked closely with Alberta Innovates, FPInnovations, InnoTech Alberta, the Universities of Alberta and British Columbia and other institutions on a variety of research initiatives.  The outcomes have included:

  • Green energy generation:  In our Bioenergy Effluent Project, we adopted innovative anaerobic hybrid digester technology to convert organics in pulp mill effluent into renewable energy, displacing fossil fuel-derived heat and power in mill processes.  As part of this initiative, we partnered with Alberta Innovates to investigate chemical oxygen demand removal, hydrogen sulfide production, methane formation, micronutrient management, sulfur inhibition, resin acid toxicity and other topics associated with bioenergy generation and effluent treatment.
