February 10, 2014, Kingsey Falls, Que. – Cascades Boxboard
Group – Jonquière received an award at the 24th Energia Awards ceremony. The
Bureau de l’efficacité et de l’innovation énergétiques (BEIE) presented the
prestigious award to the Jonquière plant for optimizing the performance of its
biomass boiler.

The Cascades Boxboard Group – Jonquière entered the contest
with its biomass boiler optimization project, which consists in producing as
much steam as possible using bark, while consuming less electricity and
releasing less ash into the atmosphere. The optimization resulted in an
increase in steam production using biomass, a lower gas bill, and energy
savings of approximately $500,000 annually, as well as a reduction in
atmospheric emissions of 36 tonnes of ash per year.

Organized by the Association québécoise pour la maîtrise de
l’énergie (AQME), the Energia Awards recognize outstanding achievements of
Québec-based companies and celebrate energy efficiency in the following
categories: buildings, innovative technologies, industrial and manufacturing
processes, transportation, integrated management and reductions in greenhouse
gas emissions.
