Dartmouth College says it’s reassessing its plan to build a wood burning heating plant that would replace its current oil-burning plant.
The biomass plant was one piece of a $200 million project that is part of Dartmouth's plan to reduce its emissions.
The other part, which the college still plans on moving forward with, is converting its steam heating system to a more efficient hot-water system.
Earlier this summer, prominent scientist alumni penned a letter opposing the plant, saying the college should look into a way to generate heat without burning anything.
