Top wood pellet expert to speak at Bioenergy Insight 2017
Harold Arnold, president of US wood pellet producer Fram Renewables, is set to speak at this year’s Bioenergy Insight 2017 Conference and Expo.
Arnold has been involved in the forest industry his entire working life. He spent more than25 years in the Forest Resources Division of Hercules and held the position of Western Region Superintendent prior to his leaving Hercules in 1995.
Since then, he has exported chips and other forest products through port facilities at Savannah, handled a variety of consulting projects for forest products industries in the South, and completed several international forestry related assignments as a consultant for the United States Agency for International Development.
Arnold joined Fram Renewable Fuels in October 2005. His industry knowledge led to the development of Fram's first wood pellet facility in Baxley, Georgia. Appling County Pellets was constructed and began producing in late 2007. Since then he has played a pivotal role in the development of the business and customer relationships that are so vitally necessary in this business. As the industry continues to grow Arnold enhances the profile of Fram to further develop the wood pellet industry in the Southeast US.
