Oct. 16, 2009, Nanaimo, BC – Two dozen pulp and paper
companies across Canada have qualified for funding under the federal
government’s $1-billion Pulp and Paper Green Transformation Program. Canadian
pulp and paper companies that produced black liquor in 2009 are eligible to
access the fund. Black liquor is a liquid byproduct of the chemical pulping
process that is used to generate renewable energy. Qualified companies will be
able to use the program to help finance projects that enhance environmental
performance at any pulp and paper facility they own. As a result, many mills
across Canada that did not generate credits through black liquor production
will still benefit from the program.

Qualified companies are now required to submit specific
project proposals for their facilities. Companies can expect to receive funding
for their capital projects in late 2009 or early in 2010. Companies have until
2012 to apply the credits to environmental improvement projects.
