Fiberight facility to open in October, not September

July 29, 2018 |

In Maine, Fiberight’s facility in Hampden has 72,000 square feet of concrete flooring laid down in the 144,000 square foot space which is anticipated to be installed next month. Recycling equipment is set to arrive soon as well and Fiberight expects the facility to begin processing waste in October, not September as Fiberight CEO Craig Stuart-Paul previously thought. Once fully operational in early 2019, Stuart-Paul told Bangor Daily News that it would be the largest waste-to-biofuel plant of its kind in the country and will process up to 180,000 tons of waste each year.

“I would’ve preferred we would’ve had more equipment in by now. In Maine, you have a very short construction season,” Stuart-Paul told Bangor Daily News. According to Bangor Daily News, “construction began last July, and Fiberight was supposed to begin processing waste by April 1, but the $69 million plant off Coldbrook Road was far from complete. The 115 central, northern and Down East communities that form the Municipal Review Committee and are building the Fiberight plant have been forced to landfill their waste until it comes online.”
