To help create markets for wood chips, N.S. encouraged increase in biomass burning

There has been an increase in the amount of biomass being burned at the Nova Scotia Power biomass plant at Point Tupper and at Brooklyn Energy since June.


As the Nova Scotia government continues to search for new markets for wood chips, a change made earlier this spring has allowed for more biomass to be burned in the interim as a way to help the forestry sector.

Sawmills and contractors were suddenly faced with a glut of wood chips following the shutdown of Northern Pulp at the end of January.
