PORT ALICE -- Neucel Specialty Cellulose's bankruptcy will cost the province an additional $9 million to decommission the abandoned pulp mill in Port Alice.

PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC) has been managing the process since it was appointed as receiver earlier this year. It has already spent $5 million and told the court it would need a total of $17 million to manage the site until March 31, 2021.
