    Finding a better way

    The benefits of installing a Biomass Boiler   

    The Lake Utopia Paper Biomass Boiler Project was designed to reduce the mill's environmental footprint in a number of ways. The new boiler was installed to provide enough steam to fulfill the needs of the mill - diminishing the mill's reliance on fossil fuels to power its manufacturing operations and lowering greenhouse gas emissions by more than 66,000 tonnes per year.

    A decreased reliance on fossil fuels and new filters for the boiler translate into lower sulphur dioxide emissions. The project currently reduces sulphur dioxide emissions by 304 tonnes per year - a 43 percent reduction.
