Canfor to Invest

Canfor will be adding another power-generating turbine to its biomass-fired energy system as part of $8 million in capital upgrades to its Fort St. John, BC, sawmill, the company announced Tuesday.

Canfor Corporation President and CEO Don Kayne said, “This capital project will improve cost efficiency at our Fort St. John mill and help move us toward energy self-sufficiency.”

The Canfor mill in Fort St. John produces 200 million board feet from logs harvested mostly from the Fort St. John Timber Supply Area annually.
