5 Fuel Switch Projects


Canfor implemented five Sawmill Fuel Switch Projects that reduced GHG emissions from natural gas consumption at commercial sawmills through the operation of a heat-energy system that utilizes residual biomass feedstock. The projects were implemented at the Elko, Fort St. John, Mackenzie, Prince George, and Chetwynd Sawmills. Carbon offset funds enabled the sawmills to install a system that uses the waste product from the mill’s operations to create energy.

Our Involvement

Ostrom Climate supported Canfor for the full project cycles, including project design and documentation, validation, activity reporting, verification, and offset registration and issuance.


The projects were validated and verified, and tonnes are issued on the BC Carbon Registry. Over 500,000 tonnes have been verified to date.
