Long Falls Paperboard, the company that this year bought the former Neenah Paper Inc. plant in Brattleboro, is using a $1 million federal grant to study using wood biomass instead of the natural gas that is delivered to the factory in trucks every day.

Brattleboro Development Credit Corp. (BDCC) will use the $1 million grant from the Northern Border Regional Commission to study the feasibility of building a biomass co-generation plant over the next 18 months, said Adam Grinold, executive director of the nonprofit economic development organization.
