In 2018, the Papier Kingsey Falls (PKF) plant signed up for Natural Resources Canada’s ENERGY STAR Challenge for Industry. The clock was ticking: the plant had five years to decrease its energy intensity by 10%.
The local team along with CS+ energy efficiency experts looked for every possible avenue of improvement. Over five years, they made considerable progress.
Natural Resources Canada confirmed that Papier Kingsey Falls completed the challenge successfully: the plant decreased its energy intensity by 12.5% over a five year period, 10% more than their initial goal!
This achievement also contributes to Cascades’ goal of reducing our overall energy consumption by 6% by 2025 (GJ/MT), as set forth in our most recent Sustainability Action Plan.
