While some jaded readers may view claims about sustaining communities as a bunch of corporate fluff, in Domtar’s case it is. Literally.
Domtar’s mills in Plymouth, North Carolina, and Ashdown, Arkansas, have decades of papermaking history and an experienced workforce. They are essential pillars of their local economies. And, like many mills across North America, their longterm future was directly affected by declining paper demand in the markets they served.
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.
