Port Townsend Paper Corp. in Port Townsend, Wash. has been awarded a $2 million state grant to upgrade its biomass cogeneration boiler and plant, which will help retain the mill’s existing 209 jobs and create 108 temporary jobs. The Port Townsend mill received the largest single grant of the 19 recipients statewide, and Port Townsend Paper also agreed to leverage $53 million in additional funding to match the grant. According to Roger Loney, Port Townsend Paper mill senior vice president and mill manager, “This project will increase our electricity generation capacity and make it available to the public.”  The funding helps addresses a state goal to reduce energy consumption by at least 25% of the Washington’s 1990 per capita energy use by 2012.
