MADISON, ME, Aug. 17, 2010 (Morning Sentinel) -Residents will learn tonight about the possibility of Madison Paper Industries adding a $25-million wood biomass energy facility at its site.

Anticipated to add eight to 10 jobs, the facility would use bark byproducts and would reduce the paper mill's reliance on oil, said Brandon Ogilvie, vice president of IN Madison LLC, which would own and operate the site. It is a subsidiary of IN Group, located in Richmond, Va.

A public hearing, which is a required part of the company's permit process with the Maine Department of Environmental Protection, will start at 7 p.m. at the Madison Area Junior High School's auditorium, located at 205 Main St.
