CA (QC): Serres Toundra uses captured carbon from pulp mill

A circular-economy initiative will soon capture carbon emissions from a Canadian pulp mill and then use the CO2 to spur plant growth in a nearby greenhouse.

CO2 Solutions will install a $7.4 million carbon capture system at Quebec forestry company Resolute Forest Products’ Saint-Félicien softwood kraft pulp mill. The captured CO2 — up to 30 metric tons per day — will then be reused in Serres Toundra’s $100 million vegetable greenhouse, currently under construction in Saint-Félicien. Adding carbon to the facility’s air will help fuel photosynthesis and boost the greenhouse’s yield.

After a six-month demonstration period, Serres Toundra has agreed to purchase the captured CO2 for a period of 10 years.
