Corner Brook Pulp & Paper Tire Derived Fuel (TDF) Co-Firing Trial Project

Proponent: Corner Brook Pulp & Paper Ltd.

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent, Corner Brook Pulp & Paper Limited, is proposing to install a TDF storage, handling and blending system to allow the eventual addition of up to 5% by weight of TDF to the biomass feed to the #7 power boiler at the mill in Corner Brook, Newfoundland and Labrador. Tire Derived Fuel is defined as a uniformly shredded product produced from whole scrap tires for use as fuel. Approximately 150 metric tonnes of TDF will be purchased for the trial. During the trial, TDF will be added to the biomass feed of # 7 boiler in small increments, from 1% to a maximum of 5%. Stack testing as well as ash leachate analysis and effluent testing will be conducted to quantify the impact of the boiler’s emissions at the 1, 3 and 5% increments.
