The function of the project is to increase the thermal efficiency of the Northwood Pulp No. 1 Recovery Boiler (RB#1), which will allow a reduced dependence on the two power boilers (PB#2 and PB#4). This reduces levels of natural gas and biomass combusted, with subsequent reductions in GHG emissions. The project plan for this project was originally validated under the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act and has been accepted under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act transitional provision.
The BC Carbon Registry is established under the Greenhouse Gas Industrial Reporting and Control Act. The BC Carbon Registry enables the issuance, transfer and retirement of compliance units used to fulfill the compliance obligation of regulated operations under the Act, and supports the Province of British Columbia’s annual commitment to have a carbon neutral public sector.
