Lincoln Paper & Tissue Focuses on Energy Efficiency

LINCOLN - Lincoln Paper & Tissue, LLC is investing in its specialty tissue line with an update of its machinery and a monetary incentive from efficiency Maine.

 

When pulp production was interrupted at the mill in November, the company switched to purchasing dried pulp to keep its tissue line running.

 

Efficiency Maine's Large Customer Program has given a one-million dollar incentive to help the mill.

 

The result could save nearly six-million kilowatt hours a year, that's enough energy to power over 900 homes.

 

The total cost of the project is estimated at nearly three-million dollars and is part of an overall $7.8-million facility upgrade.
