So far, the Oregon DEQ is giving the green light for a 25-megawatt La Pine Biomass plant. The plan is to build the $60-million plant at the Finley Butte Industrial Park. “There is a few different reasons why we need that plant. From an environmental standpoint, we have timberlands that have been mismanaged and some adverse conditions created on them by dense pine populations that don't allow for optimum wood growth. They end up creating significant ladder fuels for forest fires.” Rob Broberg is the President of Bio-Green Sustainable Energy. He says 20% of the project cost is going into pollution control. Broberg assures residents that 99% of the pollutants will be removed before emissions are allowed to vent. Up to 25 jobs will be created pumping $1.3 million into the local economy every year. You have a chance to hear the DEQ's report during a public meeting Tuesday night at 6 at the La Pine Senior Activity Center.
