April 24, 2014, Revelstoke, B.C. – Revelstoke council and
the Revelstoke Community Energy Corporation are considering a proposal to bring
a wood waste to bioenergy facility to the community.

 

According to a report from the Revelstoke Times Review,
Council will spend $15,000 on a Request for Proposals for the bioenergy
facility, following a presentation made by John Christie. Christie, a business
consultant who focuses on the development of green technology, presented to
both councils about the possibility of a bioenergy facility to “bring it to
their attention.”

 

Christie’s presentation focused on two potential ideas for
the wood waste to bioenergy facility: a torrefied wood pellet plant or a green diesel
plant. Three groups in the Revelstoke area could potentially provide wood waste
for the project, including Downie Timber, which Geoff Battersby, the chair of
both the Revelstoke Community Energy Corporation and Revelstoke Community
Forestry Corporation, estimated produces around 100,000 tonnes of wood waste
per year.
