Paper Mills Threatened by Black Liquor Bill

March 15th, 2013 by WCBC Radio

A new bill has been introduced in Annapolis centering on a substance known only to paper mills known as black liquor. Black liquor is a bi-product created in the pulping process in paper mills and then used as a cheap energy source at the plant. Paper mills in Maryland receive tax credits for using black liquor as an energy source; however, according to Allegany County Commissioner Bill Valentine, there is a bill being introduced that threatens the credit.
