A native tree of North America, the sourwood is one of the few endemic trees that is not found on other continents unless planted, and has no related species. The name sourwood is derived from the bitter taste of its leaves. Native Americans and early colonists depended on the sourwood as an important source of medicine to aid with indigestion, asthma, diarrhea, and mouth ulcers. Farmers found its hard, durable wood excellent for tool handles and machinery bearings.
Our mill in Windsor, Quebec, is on its way to becoming one of the largest private producers of renewable energy in the Eastern Townships region of the province with a second turbine generator scheduled for commissioning in 2017.
The mill is already generating steam and electricity from its current 32 megawatt (MW) turbine generator. Energy efficiency improvements and other operational changes have yielded enough spare capacity in the biomass boiler to allow the mill to take advantage of a renewable energy program launched by the provincial utility for Quebec’s forest industry.
