We are happy to report that Canfor Pulp’s Prince George Pulp and Specialty Paper Mill has been so successful in making environmental improvements that it has been recognized with the National Environmental Strategy Award from the Pulp and Paper Technical Association of Canada.

The award recognized the significant improvements to environmental performance achieved by the mill over the past decade. Key projects contributing to these improvements included:

  • The Increased Biofuel Power project, which saw the production of an additional 7,560 megawatt hours (MWh) of renewable energy.
  • The Boiler Feedwater Treatment project, which will enable an increase in renewable power in the order of 6,170MWh/year, and will save an estimated 500 GJ/day in water and heat loss to the effluent treatment system.
  • The Prince George Odour Reduction Project. As a result of this project, the city of Prince George has experienced a 60% reduction in detectible odour events.

In presenting the award to Canfor Pulp's Environment Manager Glenda Waddell, the Assistant Deputy Minister for the Canadian Forest Service, Tom Rosser, had this to say about Canfor Pulp's efforts: “Canfor Pulp has demonstrated long-term concerted efforts to reduce its impact on the community with respect to air emissions and other environmental impacts over the years...leading to overwhelming positive response from residents, air quality groups and local government.”

Canfor Pulp is honoured to have received this award, and we want to thank all those who have contributed to making the Prince George Pulp and Specialty Paper Mill an example for the nation, including our employees, FPInnovations, Natural Resources Canada and the BC Ministry of Environment.

In 2013 the Association of Chemical Pulp and Paper Chemists and Engineers of Germany (ZELL CHEM ING) awarded their Georg Jayme medallion to Canfor Pulp employee Michael Bradley in recognition of his efforts promoting “responsible, nature respecting, resource management and use”. Mr Bradley was the first Canadian to receive this medal.
