PT Paper first manufacturer in state to switch to CNG
September 15, 2016
The Port Townsend Paper Corp. has become the first large manufacturer in the state to switch from oil to compressed natural gas (CNG). Mill officials say this conversion should reduce its current greenhouse gas emission levels by 25 percent. The mill also is the anchor client for Xpress Natural Gas of Boston, which built a $5 million facility, the first such facility in the state, in the Satsop Business Park in Elma, Washington, specifically to service the Port Townsend mill.
