CAAP Project Investigates Clean Wood Energy

CAAP Project Investigates Clean Wood Energy

The Agro-forestry and Woodlot Extension Society (AWES) recently received $195,000 of Canadian Agricultural Adaptation Program (CAAP) funding to investigate the feasibility of using private woodlots to provide energy for communities. The winner of the contract was Fink Machine and our 150kW Pyrot Boiler. The boiler was installed in March 2011 and burns wood chips supplied by local business. In Alberta agricultural zones, it is estimated that there are more than 1.5 million hectares of forested land that is privately owned by farmers and ranchers.
