SOIL AMENDMENT FROM BIOMASS RECOVERY

A Cost-Saving Green Energy Alternative

Partners: Lakehead University

Project Location: Thunder Bay, ON

Benefits: Minimizing biomass disposal in landfills, while creating a cost-saving alternative ‘green energy’ soil amendment.

LOW-COST SOIL AMENDMENT

Ontario Power Generation and Resolute are joining with Lakehead University researchers in a project utilizing forest bimass recovery to demonstrate the amendment potential of biochar from farm and forest soils.

This study will provide valuable information for critical forest resource decisions now being made in Northern Ontario.
