Due to its positive economic impact on the community, the Shelton Mason County Chamber of Commerce announces its support of the proposed ADAGE biopower facility to be constructed in the Shelton vicinity. This facility will use state of the art technology to process forest derived biomass, a previously unused byproduct of tree harvest, to generate green energy. Construction of the $250 million facility will result in 793 direct, indirect and additive jobs in the community generating $42 million in total wages and salaries. Operation of the facility will create approximately 200 jobs in 23 different industry sectors. Construction of the facility will contribute over $4.7 million in state and local tax revenue, and $2 million annually thereafter. The facility will support working forests, long a staple of the local economy.Read the entire press release.Tweet Posted in: Biomass, Renewables, Uncategorized | No Comments»
