In Canada, the Honourable Bernard Valcourt, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development announced $12 million in funding to go to AV Cell Inc. in Atholville, New Brunswick, for capital upgrades to treat two mill effluent streams using an anaerobic process. This form of effluent treatment will allow the mill to produce more renewable energy through the combustion of biogas, thereby offsetting consumption of fossil fuels and reducing emissions. The AV Cell Inc. project is one of 16 PPGTP-funded projects announced recently by the Government of Canada, representing a total investment of $109.2 million.
