October 20, 2014, Prince George, B.C. – Purden Lake and Ski
Resorts Ltd. is looking at sustainable ways to replace its dependence on diesel
fuel thanks to students from the College of New Caledonia in Prince George.

 

According to a report from Business in Vancouver, a
fourth-class power engineering course led by instructor Byron Poppleton is
looking at ways to use wood and organic waste products to produce renewable
energy for the resorts. The materials would be combusted in an internal
combustion engine in order to produce power.

The technology builds on the work being done at the
University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George, which uses wood waste
in a bioenergy system to produce heat and electricity for several campus
buildings.
