Renewafuel completes its biomass build

A subsidiary of Cliffs Natural Resources, Ohio, US-based Renewafuel has finished the construction of its biomass cube fuel pellet plant in Gwinn, Michigan.

The project, which was announced back in June 2008, cost $19 million (€13.85 million) to build and will create 25 new jobs when fully operational.

Renewafuel, a provider of renewable energy for industrial and institutional applications, has been producing biomass cubes for over five years at its pilot production facility on Battle Creek, Michigan, but the completion of its new plant will see its output capacity ramped up to commercial-scale and used to heat the company’s dryer. This will replace natural gas currently being used.

‘We think this [biomass fuel] will become a megatrend not only in society, but legislatively as well,’ Chairman Bill Blake commented.
