Why Turn Waste into Pellets?

Why take waste by-products from timber manufacturing and refine this into pencil sized pellets with uniform size, shape, moisture content, density and energy content? Why not simply burn the raw wood waste rather than turn it into pellets?

Maintaining the Carbon-neutral Cycle

When wood pellets are burned, the same amount of carbon dioxide is released as was captured by the tree during its growth phase. No additional greenhouse gases are emitted, thus it circulates in a renewable, carbon-neutral cycle.

Turning biomass waste into heat

Pinnacle sources waste from timber manufacturing that would otherwise have been left or burned, compresses and engineers the fibres to create wood pellets. These sustainable pellets reduce or replace the need to use fossil fuels or firewood as a heat source.

Reducing toxic emissions

Arsenic, carbon monoxide, sulphur and carbon dioxide are just a few of the pollutants produced by non-renewable fossil fuels used for heat and energy. Pellets burn more efficiently (system efficiency averages at 80 per cent) than other fuels and emissions from pellet burners meet the most stringent Environmental Protection Act requirements.

More Heat Less Steam

The moisture content of pellets is substantially lower (four per cent to eight per cent water, compared with 20 per cent to 60 per cent for raw biomass). Less moisture means higher BTU value and easier handling, especially in freezing conditions with green biomass.

Easy to Handle

Pellets are easier to handle. Their uniform shape and size allows for a smaller and simpler feed system, which reduces costs, and makes them easy to store in standard silos, transport in rail cars and deliver in tanker trucks.

Environmentally Risk-Free

Pellets pose none of the environmental risks that spillable fossil fuels do. The remarkable consistency and burn efficiency of pellet fuel produces a fraction of the particulate emissions of raw wood waste. Pellet burners have the lowest particulate matter emissions of all solid-fuel burners.

Global Acceptance

With our ever-growing knowledge of climate change and a focus on reducing our collective carbon footprint, industrial wood pellets have become a compelling option within the renewable energy market. From their commercial inception in the 1980’s as a heating source in both residential and commercial structures, to their rapidly increasing adoption by global utilities and large-scale power generators as a renewable fuel to produce reliable baseload power, our high-quality industrial wood pellets have gained recognition from major customers around the world.

Exporting Terminals

We provide bulk industrial-grade fuel pellets for clean biomass energy to customers in Europe, North America and Asia. Individual shipments may range from 40-tonne truckloads to 100-tonne railcars to 60,000-tonne Panamax ocean vessels.

We are focused on increasing our export capacity through terminals in two B.C. locations: Vancouver and Prince Rupert. We capably service both ports by producing pellets that meet European industrial specifications at our network of inter-connected mills in the heart of B.C.’s forests. All of our mills are connected by rail to either port, which adds significantly to our suppliability.
