Canadian cardboard maker plans 140 MW cogen plant

Atlantic Packaging, a cardboard manufacturer based in Toronto, Canada, will submit a formal proposal to the Ontario Power Authority in September for building and operating a 140 MW cogeneration power plant next to its two paper mills.

The project would be combined with a smaller one proposed by Northland Power for the waterfront Redpath Sugar property. Together, the two plants would add 185 MW to the city’s generation capacity.

The Atlantic proposal calls for a 2800 m2 facility, with a 30-metre high emissions stack on a vacant lot next to the company’s main paper mill and within 1 km of a second mill. Together, the two mills produce 1800 tonnes of cardboard a day from recycled material.

Heat from the proposed plant would generate steam for removing excess water during the pulping process.
