Canadian paper and packaging group Cascades will invest CAD11.3 million in the upgrade of two biomass boilers at its Cabano plant in Témiscouata-sur-le-Lac, Canada. The investment is aimed at decreasing heavy-fuel consumption and improving energy efficiency at the containerboard mill.

With two major projects at its Cabano plant supported by the Quebec government, Cascades will significantly decrease its heavy-fuel oil consumption. The two energy efficiency projects represent a total investment of CAD11.3 million in the Cascades Containerboard Packaging-Cabano plant. The government of Quebec will contribute financial aid in the amount of CAD5.2 million for the two projects, while Cascades will invest CAD6.1 million.

The projects consist in modifying two residual forest biomass boilers. One will be upgraded with automated controls. The second, more ambitious project involves installing a new combustion chamber and combustion air preheater to the other boiler. These projects will allow the plant to improve boiler operating time and efficiency while limiting the use of another boiler that consumes heavy-fuel oil.
