As we continue to rack our brains for solutions to climate change, one tool is consistently overlooked: forests. But this is not the case for the Forest Enhancement Society of BC (FESBC), who are helping to revolutionize the way their industry handles climate change. One of the many ways they are doing this is by utilizing previously burned off wood waste to create energy… Currently that energy is used to power the Williams Lake Cogeneration Plant, with the surplus sold back to the grid. Endeavours undertaken at the Williams Lake Community Forest have also played a part in processing waste. Managing wood waste is just one of the numerous ways the Society are working to better the environment through BC’s forests. [FESBC Executive Director Steve] Kozuki also spoke on how projects such as the Cariboo Chilcotin Rehab project can help not only manage climate change, but also strengthen BC’s bio-economy.
