Print Print this article | Send to Colleague

Norampac Trenton, Trenton, Ont., Canada, is receiving C$83,000 from the Government of Canada's Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program to make its paper mill more energy efficient. Funds from the program will be used to upgrade the mill's existing corrugated paper machine so that it can capture and redirect energy for other uses within the mill.

A division of Cascades Canada Inc., Norampac has made improvements that have increased the efficiency of the mill's heat exchangers. Recovering this additional energy will reduce the mill's energy needs and its use of natural gas to heat the paper machine departments by more than 20,000 gigajoules per year. Greenhouse gas emissions will be cut by more than 1,000 metric tpy, which is equal to the amount of emissions that 250 cars produce in a year.

Cascades Canada is one of 24 pulp and paper companies in Canada that qualified for credits under the $1 billion program.
