Port Townsend Paper to appeal waste permit denial by local authority in Washington, $55M biomass project delayed [From the web]

PORT TOWNSEND, WA, Jan. 3, 2013 (Peninsula Daily News ) - Port Townsend Paper Corp. no longer qualifies for an inert-waste permit for the landfill at its Port Townsend plant, according to final findings issued by the Jefferson County Public Health Department, and the company plans to appeal the decision.

"The waste stream generated by the pulp and paper mill . . . is capable of producing leachate or emissions that have the potential to negatively impact soil, groundwater, surface water or air quality and thus the PTPC waste stream cannot satisfy the criteria for inert waste," concluded the report.
