Catalyst to Improve Operational Efficiency
Print

Richmond, British Columbia, Canada 04 August 2016 -- Catalyst Paper Corporation announced that it will invest approximately $2.7 million (U.S.) in two projects at its Biron, Wisconsin mill that will improve operational efficiency and lighten its environmental footprint.

One project will convert the fuel source of Biron's #4 boiler from high-sulphur coal to natural gas. The second project will modify the TMP reboiler to reclaim unused waste steam from the thermo mechanical pulping process to heat fresh water supplying the paper machines, decreasing the demand on both coal and natural gas.

These projects offer significant environmental benefits. They will substantially reduce sulphur dioxide emissions, while achieving major reductions of particulate, nitrogen oxide and greenhouse gas.

With the #4 boiler conversion, Biron will also meet the Environmental Protection Agency's Maximum Achievable Control Technology standard, which impacts the mill on Jan. 31, 2017.

"These two projects represent an important milestone for our mill," said Lucas McLeod, Vice President & General Manager. "Today, we take an important step forward to position Biron for improved efficiency and environmental performance, which supports Catalyst's commitment to continuous improvement."

The economic impact of this work is significant as the company anticipates investing approximately $1 million (U.S.) in local/regional expenditures during the construction of both projects.

Work on the reboiler is under way and expected to be completed in October 2016. Work on the #4 boiler conversion is expected to commence in February 2017. The company anticipates start up by May 1, 2017.
