Neenah Paper To Use Biomass At Whiting Mill
Construction is underway at Neenah Paper’s largest mill to build a biomass fuel system that will convert wood and fiber waste into steam energy, CSR Wire reports.
As part of “The Neenah Green: Changes Comes from Within” campaign, Vision Power will build the fossil fuel-free steam energy system at Neenah’s Whiting Mill. The project is scheduled for completion in the third quarter of 2009.
The project is expected to reduce Neenah Paper’s carbon footprint by about 42,000 tons annually, the equivalent of removing over 8,400 cars of the road for a year; and reduce the company’s energy costs as a result of shutting down its current gas-fired boilers.
