Rothschild biomass plant only getting 10 percent of fuel from forest waste as proposed

Rothschild biomass plant only getting 10 percent of fuel from forest waste as proposed | Renewable energy information on  wood pellets,biomass briquettes and  pelleting and briquetting plants and machines is catering your eyes!!! | Scoop.it

The recently built power plant at Domtar paper mill in central Wisconsin is getting only 10 percent of its fuel from logging waste, which originally was supposed to supply nearly all of the plant's energy needs.

***

We Energies told the Wisconsin Public Service Commission in its permit applications which were required to build the facility, that logging waste would supply the vast majority of the plant’s fuel. The PSC approved the plant’s construction over the objection of neighbors and critics in the wood industry who said forest waste would not provide enough fuel for the operation and that the plant inevitably would drive up wood prices.

***

Domtar initially targeted tree tops and other logging waste as its anchor fuel for the power plant, said Jeff Plunkett, the company’s procurement manager. Instead, wood from land cleared of trees for expanding farms and housing developments and residue from saw mills and paper mills has been a “huge source for us,” he said.

"...expanding farms and housing developments..." Are we really talking about northern Wisconsin?
