A local woodworking shop, "Mark Richey Woodworking" was honored with a national award for its efforts in pollution prevention and energy efficiency. The 130,000 sq ft shop in Newburyport MA. which specializes in high end architectural woodworking, heats the shop using a biomass boiler that burns waste sawdust and wood chips from the production floor. They have also invested in solar arrays and a wind turbine which produce almost 100% of the power needed to operate the company, and the company has reduced organic compounds by 12 tons due to investments in a solvent recycling unit, an ultrasonic spray gun cleaner, a robotic spray line and the use of water-based coatings Richie said, if we can do it, other companies can too. Nice to know that a local woodworking shop is doing well.
