Montana mill breaks ground for biomass boiler
August 29, 2012, Columbia Fall, MT – F.H. Stoltze Land and Lumber Co. celebrated the groundbreaking for a new biomass boiler at its Half Moon mill.
According to HungryHorseNews.com , the $22 million high-tech boiler, which utilizes waste wood from the mill, will not only provide heat for the plant, it will also generate about 2.5 megawatts of electricity that will be purchased by Flathead Electric Cooperative.
“There’s not many companies in Montana that are 100 years old,” Stoltze vice president Chuck Roady said. “And there aren’t any (Montana) forest products companies that are 100 years old. We’re really proud of that.”
Roady thanked a host of agencies, including the U.S. Forest Service, the state Department of Natural Resources, FEC and others for making the project possible.
