The plant, for example, will have short, 24-hour shutdowns at regular intervals to clean and maintain its equipment. During the outage, processes were changed to improve production, according to a Columbia Pulp news release. “This is a substantial step for Columbia Pulp, and we are excited about these developments,” Plant Manager Kyler Lovgren said in the news release.
The pulp is used for a number of purposes, such as tissue, paper, lightweight cardboard and clamshell containers for takeout food. Plant officials previously reported Columbia Pulp was making 50 to 60 tons of pulp per day in March 2020 after opening in September 2019.
“We do have quite a lot of customers lined up for various markets,” Specht said. The plant is only making small quantities of pulp, but eventually is expected to reach its full capacity of 400 tons per day and have 100 employees, Specht said.
The wineries are Clearwater Canyon Cellars in Lewiston, Colter’s Creek Winery in Juliaetta and Moscow, Jovinea Cellars in Lewiston, Parejas Cellars in Clarkston, Rivaura Estate Vineyards and Winery at Arrow Junction, Spiral Rock Vineyard and Tasting Room in the Lewiston area, Two Bad Labs Vineyard and Winery in Lewiston and Vine 46 Winery in Lewiston. Each passport includes discounts for 17 businesses such as Wawawai Canyon Winery in Uniontown, Ampersand Oil & Vinegar Taphouse in Lewiston and Moscow and Mystic Cafe in Lewiston. Tasting room fees will be waived once per participating winery from June 1 through Aug. 31.
The Lewis-Clark Valley Wine Alliance is selling $49 passports to help familiarize people with the area’s wines. Passports lead wine enthusiasts on an exploration of north central Idaho and southeastern Washington
