A proposed biomass plant off Highway 66 will not be built, due to complications with its federal funding source. Klamath Falls Bioenergy withdrew its application for a site certification on Tuesday.

The certification process had been mired in delays with the Energy Facilities Siting Council.

The proposed plant was fiercely opposed by a local group, Save Our Rural Oregon, who contended that the plant would have detrimental environmental impacts. Proponents of the project said it would create jobs and boost property tax revenue in the county.
