Wood-waste power plant proposal signed

Cheslatta Forest Products and Pristine Power announced today they signed an agreement to build a proposed $40-million energy plant in northern B.C. that uses wood waste, and possibly beetle-killed timber.

Under the proposal, the power plant would use Vancouver-based Nexterra Energy's gasification technology, already in use at a Tolko plywood plant near Kamloops.
