LINCOLN, ME, Jan. 3, 2013 (Bangor Daily News) -Lincoln Paper & Tissue LLC leaders hope within a few months to have a deal made to get their mill machinery operating on natural gas that isn't trucked to the facility, co-owner Keith Van Scotter says.

Calling the plan "a major improvement for us," Van Scotter said the plan would involve a natural gas pipeline or other form of conveyance. It likely will be the mill's most significant planned improvement for 2013, he said.

"We want to continue to improve incrementally through the next year; to get natural gas done this year and maybe next year look at doing some other things," Van Scotter said.
