During the MRC Pontiac meeting, held last Wednesday, the mayor of L’Isle-aux-Allumettes, Winston Sunstrum, presented two resolutions related to the forest industry. The first concerned the Renmatix company. This company, headquartered in Atlanta, is back in the news, after the vote on November 25, to request conditions in order to renew the annual amount intended for the consultant and president of Fiber Pontiac, Pierre Vézina. Winston Sunstrum insisted that the MRC thank and welcome the company Renmatix, for its interest in establishing its biorefinery in the Pontiac industrial park, located in Litchfield (former site of the Smurfit-Stone). The company had been qualified as a cornerstone by Pierre Vézina, in order to develop and start the Biomass Valorization Center.

Winston Sunstrum also requested that a meeting on the forest industry be held. Mr. Sunstrum said he hoped that the mayors of the MRC could be more united regarding projects related to the forestry industry in the Pontiac.

Both resolutions were adopted unanimously. The meeting concerning the forest industry should take place on January 16.
