Pacific BioEnergy plans wood pellet plant expansion in British Columbia

Pacific BioEnergy is undertaking an ambitious expansion of its wood pellet plant in Prince George, B.C., which will make the facility the largest of its kind in Canada.

The $24 million construction phase at the wood pellet plant involves the installation of a new in-feed line, which is designed to handle bush grind, which is wood waste residual from the bush.

The expanded plant will utilize more mountain pine beetle killed wood and other waste wood from the forests surrounding Prince George.
