May 16, 2014, Point Tupper, N.S. – The Point Tupper biomass
plant is struggling to get the biomass required to operate at capacity according
to company officials.

 

The Chronicle Herald reports that Minister of Natural
Resources Zach Churchill commented on the shortage being faced at Point Tupper,
but would not comment specifically on what the cause for the shortfall is.

 

The Minister discussed the issue in response to a report
earlier this week that high grade sawlogs were being used by the biomass plant
for power generation, rather than being used by sawmill operators for flooring
and lumber.

 

The biomass boiler is expected to use up to 670,000 tonnes
of woody biomass per year when running at full capacity.
