PORT ALBERNI, BC, Feb. 24, 2015 (Local News) -Port Alberni's biggest industrial operation has not closed the door on partnering with the city to create a large-scale energy project that would convert wood waste into building heat.

After years of discussions and reconsiderations, the use of a boiler at the Catalyst Paper mill seemed unlikely last week when the District Energy Project was presented to city council.

Economic development manager Pat Deakin recommended the city put the call out for a private partner - a collaboration that would probably not include Catalyst due to "less corporate interest in providing heat for the project," stated Deakin's recent report on the initiative.
