Port Angeles council OKs paper mill biomass burner





PORT ANGELES, Wash. (AP) -- Plans are still moving forward for a Port Angeles paper mill to burn logging waste to generate steam and electricity.






The city council voted Monday night to uphold planning commission approval for the Nippon Paper Industries biomass burner.






The Peninsula Daily News reports the $71 million project still needs state air quality and other city permits.






The project is opposed by environmental groups.
