The MLTC Bioenergy Centre consists of a 6.6 MW power generation system that is fueled primarily by biomass sawmill residuals. The plant produces 55,000 mw-hrs per year to the SaskPower grid, and provides low-carbon process heating (kilns and building heat).

The Government of Canada is contributing $52.5 million to this project through the Green Infrastructure Stream of the Canada-Saskatchewan Integrated Bilateral Agreement under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program.

The Final Plans

Green Power

The First Nations-owned Meadow Lake Tribal Council Bioenergy Centre will generate carbon-neutral green power using sawmill biomass residuals.

Powering Homes

It will be the first plant of its kind in Saskatchewan and is expected to produce 6.6 megawatts of baseload electricity to power approximately 5,000 homes with greener energy.

Supporting the Community

Revenues from the plant will also support essential programs and services including child and family services, education, and health and youth development for the nine member-First Nations comprising the Meadow Lake Tribal Council.

Protecting the Environment

The project is expected to decrease greenhouse gas emissions by more than 1 million tonnes over 25 years, and reduce smoke and other harmful matter to significantly improve air quality for residents.
