Arbios Announces BC Woody Biomass-to-Fuels Plant (Ind. Report)
Arbios Biotech, Licella Holdings
Date: 2021-10-13
In British Columbia, Canadian Forest Products and Sydney, Australia-based Licella Holdings joint venture Arbios Biotech reports it will construct a woody biomass- to-low carbon biofuel plant in Prince George, British Columbia. The plant will convert tree bark and sawmill wastes into high value renewable biocrude which can be further refined to produce low-carbon transportation fuels.

The facility will convert 25,000 dry tpy of wood residue to 50,000 bpy of sustainable bio-oil when it begins production in the first half of 2023. The plant, which will utilize Licella' s patented Cat-HTR decarbonization platform , will be constructed on a portion of Canfor's Intercontinental Pulp Mill site and will have the potential to add four processing lines within the existing footprint.

Biomass-Biofuels Projects Proposed for Prince George (Ind. Report)
Sustane Technologies, Arbios
Date: 2021-03-10
In British Columbia, the Prince George city council reports it is considering two biomass/biofuel projects from Nova Scotia-based Sustane Technologies and Vancouver-based forest products specialist Canfor.

The first project from Sustane would divert and recycle roughly 90 pct of municipal solid waste from landfill. Sustane would build and operate the plant, which would employ roughly 25 workers.

A second project, proposed by Canfor and Arbios, would use recovered waste and woody biomass to produce biofuel. The Arbios project would be located at the Intercon facility, creating 150 direct jobs and an additional 600 indirect jobs. Overall greenhouse gas emissions in Prince George would reportedly drop 10-pct as a result of the project. An environmental review is currently underway.

Canfor Temporarily Curtailing BC Pulp Production (Ind. Report)
Canfor Pulp Products
Date: 2019-07-12
In British Columbia, Canada, Vancouver-based Canfor Pulp Products reports it will be implementing "phased summer curtailments" in July and August at its Intercontinental and Northwood (NBSK) pulp mills in Prince George, British Columbia (BC) -- due to a significant deterioration in market conditions, fibre supply constraints and higher fibre costs resulting from recent sawmill curtailments across the BC industry.

The curtailments will reduce Canfor Pulp's production output by approximately 75,000 tonnes of NBSK pulp. The Company intends to resume full production in September. (Source: Canfor Pulp Products, PR, 5 July, 2019) Contact: Canfor Pulp Products, (604) 661-5241,,
