EN14961-2, ENplus A1, A2 and ENB Grade as standard. EN14961-1,ANSI, JIS, DIN, IWPB 1# grades available on request.

All pellets produced at the Natchitoches facility will be produced from pulpwood poles and chip and saw fibre sources, with some saw mill residuals where we have chain of custody from a certified sustainable source. Manufacturing will be in accordance with EN 14961-2. Biomass Secure Power will be using stem wood, chemically untreated residues from saw mill operations, whole trees without roots, logging residues and bark. Bark will be stripped from the poles and logs at the plant and will be used for drying and processing the fiber. Chemically treated and demolition materials will not be allowed on the site under any circumstances.

All materials entering the plant will be subject to inspection. Samples will be tested for moisture, chemical composition and ash properties. Contamination of raw material entering the plant will be monitored before and after the de-barker. We have designed the plant so that we will have the means to exclude extraneous material prior to the chipper, preventing contamination of the storage piles.

Storage on site will provide us the ability to segregate materials. Hog and bark will be kept separate and will be processed by dedicated equipment that will be physically separated from the rest of the plant. Bark will be preferentially used to provide heat for the dryers.

The storage facility will be climate controlled and will provide us the ability to control the temperature of the storage pile. All pellets being transferred to the ship loader will be screened prior to placement on the belt of a pipe conveyor. They will then be transferred directly to the barges. Dust collection is placed at the barge loader to minimize dust that is entrained with the load. This dust is returned to the plant. The Q.A. system monitors the moisture and temperature of the pellets as they leave the storage facility.

ENPlusA2 & I2 grade will be the standard run of pellets at the plant. ENPlusA1, I1 & I3 will be available on request.

All production systems at the plant will be extensively automated and linked to a central data collection and Quality Assurance system that will be open to client access. This documentation will include the received material report, production data, including documentation of upset events and a report of actions taken, along with a manufacturing report detailing the responsibilities of the various operators, training schedules, and certification.
