Sault Ste. Marie's largest heavy industry is looking at using local waste forest biomass as an alternative fuel source, in a bid to further decarbonize its operations.

"We're not looking at saw logs or something like that," Fred Post, Algoma Steel's manager of environmental control, told the Sault Climate Hub during a presentation last week. "We're looking at byproducts of the forestry sector that are not currently being utilized to their extent," Post said.
