Save The Coal: High-Grade Wood Going Up In ‘Biomass’ Smoke

The green plan to destroy forests by burning them in power plants is moving forward. Luckily, all that coal is being saved from being turned into electricity by the brave Biomass Plant Operators.

“Business owners in Cape Breton who rely on the forest for a living say high-quality hardwoods are making their way into Nova Scotia Power’s biomass plant in Point Tupper, consuming a wood supply that instead should be available for value-added businesses such as flooring and lumber.

David Fraser of BA Fraser Lumber in Margaree Valley, Inverness County, says he is seeing fewer quality saw logs and he blames it on Nova Scotia Power’s policy of getting the most amount of biomass fuel for the cheapest price.

Fraser, who runs a sawmill and is also a contractor who supplies wood to customers, said contractors simply can’t afford to separate quality saw logs from lower-quality stands of wood intended for the biomass plant.”

The plant requires 650,000 tonnes of trees per year for the $200 million power plant that only produces 60 Megawatts of power. Nova Scotia is closing coal power plants so they can burn trees instead.

Save The Endangered Coal! Trees are evil and must be burned instead.

  1. Noval Scotia is pretty far north and likely has a short growing season. Has any one calculated how much area must be harvested each year to feed the biomass plant and how many years it will take to regrow the forest until it ready for harvest? That will give a good indication of how much of the peninsula will have to be devoted to growing trees for fuel. Imagine the industries that will be displaced when trees are no longer available for lumber..
