We Energies has installed a 50MW biomass cogeneration plant at Domtar Paper Company’s Rothschild mill. The biomass fuel would consist of clean, untreated wood waste such as logging residue, bark and shavings from paper and saw mills and municipal yard waste and right-of-way clearings.
The biomass boiler represents 38% of Gundersen’s energy independence goal. The boilers create steam that is used to heat buildings in the winter and is used in the laundry and kitchen, as well as to dehumidify the air and sanitize medical equipment.
