Biomass Supply
wood chunks

Feedstock or fuel for the Mackenzie Power Plant will be supplied by Mackenzie Forest products, one of Conifex’s two sawmill operations, and may be a blend of a variety of residual byproducts from forestry and sawmill operations, including shavings, sawdust, trim blocks and hog fuel (bark).

While the power plant will primarily use hog fuel and dry shavings from our sawmill facilities, Conifex will look to the most cost-efficient supply for operation. This may include lower-value residuals from nearby sawmill operations and potentially in-forest residues (tree tops, branches, and low-grade logs damaged by insects or disease,) left behind in the harvesting process.
