More details have emerged for the new Longview Fibre cogen plant planned for southwest Washington near Longview. The new plant is 65 MW, which will make it the largest in the Pacific Northwest, replacing the company’s existing 25 MW wood-fueled cogen plant. Feedstock for the facility includes wood waste from the company’s manufacture of kraft paper, container board and corrugated boxes. About 38,000 tons of wood waste per month would fire the process. Company officials say the feedstock should be a mixture of solid wood products residuals, recycling operations and forest biomass. The plant should come on line the third quarter of 2011. Company officials are still deciding whether to sell the power produced on the grid or use it internally.
