American Eagle Paper in Pennsylvania replacing some coal with paper fuel source

ROARING SPRING, PA, April 19, 2012 (Local News) -American Eagle Paper Mills, a Central PA company specializing in recycled paper, depends on coal. The combustible rock powers a boiler that generates steam to dry the paper American Eagle creates from recycled material. Coal also runs a turbine that produces the company's heat and about 60 percent of its electricity.

But American Eagle, based in the Central PA town of Tyrone, could end up replacing at least some of the coal it uses with a fuel source that, like the paper it makes, is made of material that would otherwise end up in a landfill. And it would come from another paper company just 30 miles down Interstate 99.
