PORT ANGELES, WA, Jan. 20, 2011 (Peninsula Daily News ) -The second round of appeals for a biomass energy project in Port Angeles has begun, while opponents await a separate state hearing on an appeal filed in November against a biomass project proposed in Port Townsend.

Six of the seven environmental groups that lost an appeal of the shoreline substantial development permit that the city of Port Angeles gave Nippon Paper Industries USA are taking their case to the state Shoreline Hearings Board.

An appeal was filed Friday.

Five of those environmental groups filed an appeal with the state Pollution Control Hearings Board in November against a proposed $55 million upgrade of the Port Townsend biomass facility, which is expected to generate up to 24 megawatts of power, which the facility could sell.
