Washington's Commissioner of Public Lands to host ribbon-cutting, tour of Springdale Lumber's biomass energy plant in Springdale; facility uses sawmill waste to power mill
August 16, 2011
– Washington's Commissioner of Public Lands Peter Goldmark and other state, local and federal officials will conduct a ribbon-cutting ceremony and media tour of a new biomass-to-energy project at Springdale Lumber Company in Springdale on Aug. 19.
The facility had been closed for nearly five years when it was purchased by Borgford Bioenergy, the Washington State Department of Natural Resources said in a media advisory.
The plant will use Borgford Bioenergy’s Octoflame Burner to power the sawmill operations, and to produce waste from the sawmill's operations.
Joining Commissioner Goldmark will be Dale Borgford, the owner of Springdale Lumber and Borgford Bioenergy LLC; Pacific Northwest Region forester Kent Connaughton; Stevens County Commissioner Larry Guenther and former Stevens County Commissioner Merrill Ott.
