Georgia Pacific argues for waste wood fuel

Augusta, ME— Mill officials made their case for the use of construction and demolition debris as a substitute fuel, saying the fuel potentially could save the Georgia-Pacific Corp. more than $6 million a year in energy costs.

Georgia Pacific’s permit to burn C&D debris is held up in the appeals process. Area residents are opposing the permit based on health concerns.

Georgia Pacific’s permit now may be further affected by changes that the Department of Environmental Protection is proposing to the standards and requirements dealing with the use of construction and demolition debris as substitute fuel.

The proposed changes would require those affected by the rule modifications to comply by June 2006.
