LINCOLN, ME, Feb. 20, 2012 (Bangor Daily News) -Lincoln Paper & Tissue LLC subcontractors this week will likely finish a $2 million conversion to liquefied natural gas that will save the paper and tissue maker as much as 30 percent of its major energy costs, company officials said Monday.
The company has already started running its No. 7 tissue-making machine on liquefied natural gas and will finish the conversion of No. 8, which also produces tissue, by Friday, company co-owner Keith Van Scotter said. Work began on the changeover last fall.
