Site Visit
On May 26th (Thursday) a site visit to the Norampac, Trenton pulp and paper has been
arranged for a tour of the black liquor gasification plant. This is the first commercial
operation for an MTCI type system, the heart of which is the fluidized bed steam
reformer (9 meter bed depth).
The bus for Trenton will leave the hotel at 8:30 am on the 26th.
The bus will return to Toronto (via the airport if requested) and should arrive back in the
