Feb. 8, 2012, Upper Musquodoboit, NS - Viridis Energy Inc. plans to regularly ship 25,000 metric tonnes of wood pellets through the Port of Halifax after its acquisition of Enligna Canada Inc.

In an article published in the Chronicle Herald, the Europe-bound shipments of wood pellets, enough to fill the hold of an ocean carrier, will begin as soon as approximately 25 new workers are hired to begin production at the plant.

Scotia Atlantic Biomass does not have any immediately plans to get into
the consumer side of the wood pellet business in Atlantic Canada, but
will likely pursue this market at a later date, said Scotia Atlantic Biomass Co. chief financial officer Michele Rebiere.

“This is a significant part of our business across Canada so it’s
likely something we’ll be looking at in Nova Scotia,” she said.
