B.C.’s latest round of grants from the CleanBC Industry Fund pays for conversion of equipment at five pulp mills to reduce their natural gas use, while most of the rest of the $70 million goes to natural gas production facilities in Northeast B.C. to get them to switch processes to electricity.

Environment Minister George Heyman and Forests Minister Katrine Conroy announced the 2021 round of the fund on Monday.
