Panel: Energy, and GHG and competitiveness of the pulp and paper industry

The Canadian government has made major commitments towards reducing GHG emissions by 2030 and committed to reach net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. What does it mean for the pulp and paper (P&P) industry?

The P&P industry has already decarbonized significantly since the early 1990’s via improving energy efficiency, fuel switching, and process redesigns. Even if great progresses were made, there are still opportunities to reduce energy consumption and GHG emissions in pulp and paper mills. Furthermore, as most of the current CO2 emissions are of biomass origin, this sector has the potential to become a carbon-negative industry by implementing carbon capture and storage. P&P bio-products can also help other sectors to decarbonize; in particular, bioenergy products can replace fossil fuels in different sectors while biochemical can be used as raw materials in the chemical industry.

In this session, four panelists will share their perspectives on the opportunities and challenges that the pulp and paper industry is facing in the upcoming decades in response to Canada’s commitments to reach net-zero by 2050.
