February 5, 2014, Gaspé Peninsula, Que. – A proposed cement
plant in the Gaspé Peninsula is suggesting that it will use biomass in order to
reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The plant is being proposed by McInnis Cement
Inc. in the town of Port-Daniel-Gascons with an annual volume of up to 2.2
million tonnes. 

According to the Environmental Repercussions Study, prepared
by Genivar Inc., biomass could be integrated into the plant’s energy mix once
it is operational. “After the startup phase, the Developer (McInnis) is
considering the possibility of using biomass from logging and sawmilling
residues as its first alternative combustible. To this end, it has already been
planned to oversize the tower’s calcining kiln so that it will be suitable for
the use of biomass.”

Construction of the plant is expected to begin in late 2014
or early 2015, with plant operations expected to begin in 2016.
