A long-time ideal of sustainability has been the concept of industrial ecology—the notion that industrial processes would benefit from mimicking the closed-loop efficiency of a natural ecosystem.

Our mill in Windsor, Quebec, is on its way to becoming one of the largest private producers of renewable energy in the Eastern Townships region of the province with a second turbine generator scheduled for commissioning in 2017.
The mill is already generating steam and electricity from its current 32 megawatt (MW) turbine generator. Energy efficiency improvements and other operational changes have yielded enough spare capacity in the biomass boiler to allow the mill to take advantage of a renewable energy program launched by the provincial utility for Quebec’s forest industry.
