UBC plots $20.4-million expansion of emissions-reducing bioenergy heating plant


The University of B.C. is going to spend $20.4 million to expand a wood-waste-burning energy plant, with $7.6 million in federal help, to cut natural-gas use and reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.

UBC built its initial biomass-fuelled research and demonstration facility in 2012, with Vancouver-based bioenergy firm Nexterra Systems and General Electric, as a $27-million bid to trim carbon dioxide emissions by 4,500 tonnes per year.
