Canadian firm, Resolute Forest Products, is to resume business after Hydro-Quebec agreed to purchase electricity produced by the company’s biomass-fueled cogeneration facility.

The paper mill has announced that it will restart its Dolbeau-Mistassini paper mill which has produced soft nip calendared commercial printing paper.

The 28 MW Dolbeau cogeneration plant began operation in 1997, according to SNL data. A previous power purchase agreement with Hydro-Québec ended in September 2011.
