Manitoba Government Supports Exploring Greener Technology at Kraft Paper Mill
On July 13, the Manitoba government and the Communities Economic Development Fund (CEDF) are partnering with Canadian Kraft Paper Industries Ltd. (CKP) to explore opportunities for transitioning to a greener economy in northern Manitoba.
With the support of a $90,000 grant from the Manitoba government, a $75,000 grant from the Communities Economic Development Fund and a $130,000 investment from Canadian Kraft Paper Industries Ltd., CKP will examine options for enhancing the use of biomass to generate energy at the kraft mill in The Pas. A biomass-based fuel alternative would support fossil fuel substitution resulting in reduced greenhouse-gas emissions and would increase the facility’s long-term viability.
