HARTSVILLE, SC, Sept. 16, 2013 (Local News) -Hartsville residents will likely notice some loud noises emanating from Sonoco beginning Monday when the company begins testing its new $75 million biomass boiler.

On Monday, the company will begin what are called "steam blows" on the boiler to clean out the superheater section and steam lines, according to Brian Risinger, manager of corporate communications for Sonoco.

The steam blows will be conducted between 8 a.m. and 9 p.m. and should take about five days to complete, according to Risinger.
