New England Wood Pellet's Jaffrey, New Hampshire plant produces approximately 75,000 tons of wood pellet fuel per year. Most is bagged and shipped to a network of more than 100 retailers throughout the Northeast. From there it helps heat homes, businesses and schools. Steve Walker, the company's president and CEO, took the time to show RenewableEnergyWorld.com around the facility to give us a look at how wood pellets are made.The process starts with trucks dumping different types of waste wood, including sawdust, green wood and dried kilned wood at New England Wood Pellet's wood storage yard. From there the wood goes through blending, drying and homogenizing processes and then finally pellet formation before it goes out to customers in bagged or bulk form.
