government of Canada is investing $36.3 million in renewable energy projects in
Nova Scotia. The funding benefits Northern Pulp Nova Scotia Corporation’s pulp
mill in New Glasgow and Nova Scotia Power’s Trenton Generating Station. Northern
Pulp will receive $28.1 million from the federal Pulp and Paper Green
Transformation Program for three projects that will help the mill reduce odour
emissions, increase renewable energy production, and improve environmental
performance. Nova Scotia Power will receive $8.2 million from the Clean Energy
Fund to support the development of a biomass co-firing project. This project
consists of generating renewable electricity from waste wood to displace 10% of
the coal currently used in the Nova Scotia power plant in Trenton.
