New feedstock facility on way to completion in US
Biomass producer and wood waste recycling business Chip Energy officially broke ground on its new biomass recycling and palletising plant in Illinois, US.
A portion of the new plant is already built and, upon full completion, the site will be home to 26 40ft tall silos and a 2,300m3 bulk storage area.
It will be able to handle feedstocks like corn stover, switchgrass, cherry pits, wood chips and miscanthus.
Lunch was served to visitors during the tour which was cooked on a Chip Energy gasification stove that produces low emissions.
