A total of $3 million in grants from the Forest Enhancement Society of British Columbia has been earmarked for 15 different provincial projects, allowing post-harvest waste wood to be used toward wood pellets, pulp production, energy and compost.

The funding is part of the provincial government’s $1.5-billion economic recovery plan aimed at helping with the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“This program does just that, while also advancing the forest sector’s transition to high-value production, which is essential for B.C.’s long-term economic well-being,” Ravi Kahlon, minister of jobs, economic recovery and innovation, told Kelowna’s Castanet.

The projects are expected to help support families and communities in a time of need.
