POTLATCH, Idaho (AP) - A Pocatello-based company wants to operate a wood pellet plant in northern Idaho that has been closed since 1981.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports (https://bit.ly/25rbihF ) that Centennial Renewable Energy Solutions LLC has been working with the city of Potlatch for more than a year in hopes of taking over the former Potlatch Mill. The facility would create pellets from residual wood scraps and sawdust from area mills.

CEO Rick Fawcett says the company would hire 35 people to work at the facility and though they have not signed a purchase agreement to take over the mill, they have identified the site of the potential business.

Centennial Renewable Energy submitted a request for a permit to construct to the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality last week.
