Flambeau River Biofuels, Park Falls, Wis., has signed a letter of intent to engineer, procure and build what it is calling the largest second generation “green diesel” plant in the United States. It will be built at the Flambeau paper mill in Park Falls, Wis. The project, slated to cost around $250 million, is being funded in part with a U.S. Department of Energy grant. It is expected to be operational by 2013.
The plant will use a patented process technology from ThermoChem Recovery International, Baltimore, to convert roughly 1,000 tons of woody biomass from bark, sawdust, wood and forest residue per day. The process will convert the material into electrical power, steam, and heat at the paper mill.
