The P.G. Interior Waste to Energy group said today they plan to start construction on a $50 million bioenergy project in early May.
The project is expected to create 70 jobs, producing electricty to heat 7,000 homes, as well as other products like bio-energy and bio-oil.
"This is an example of the new forestry sector" says Liberal candidate for Prince George-Mackenzie Pat Bell, "The plant will also produce an activated charcoal that can be used in water filters and in the automotive paint industry. It also produces light and heavy oils. The light oil can be used as bio-diesel and the heavy oil has other applications."
