A new waste-to-energy facility could be on the horizon in Vavenby, not quite two years after the shutdown of Canfor’s sawmill in the British Columbia community.

The concept of the company is to convert clean thermal and electrical energy from the diversion of sewage sludge, forestry materials, municipal solid waste and other materials from landfills.
