In 2010, industry
consumed 3,727,181 GJ of other fuels and
emitted 111,421 GHG tonnes.
About 4.68% of total industrial energy use comes from fuel sources such as wood, petroleum coke (a byproduct of oil refining) and natural gas liquids (NGLs).
In Manitoba, the biggest source of other fuels is wood
. Pulp and paper manufacturers and forestry companies frequently produce electricity on site using wood waste and "pulping liquor", which are byproducts of their industrial processes.
