Clean Industry

Advancing the Science of Bioenergy

One of the strategies in the new B.C. Energy Plan is to generate more power from clean and renewable sources – including wood waste, which is also known as biomass. B.C. Hydro will be issuing a call for independent biomass projects in 2008, and the government is supporting that work by developing new guidelines to minimize emissions from biomass generation facilities.

This work will also support Actions #14 and #15 in this Air Action Plan: encouraging companies to use the best available technologies, and improving emission standards for industrial boilers.
