WTO okay with provinces buying biomass power


Among findings in Canada’s favour, the World Trade Organization (WTO) has determined that provincial programs to procure biomass power do not constitute an undue market advantage for softwood lumber producers in British Columbia, Quebec and New Brunswick.

Reasoning in the WTO decision, released earlier this week, backs Canada’s assertion that the purchase of electricity from on-site generating facilities at various mills is not a benefit or grounds for the United States to apply countervailing duties.
