International WoodFuels, in partnership with the business development team at non-profit Maine & Company, announced plans to build a state-of-the-art biomass manufacturing facility in Burnham, Maine. The facility will have the capacity to produce 100,000 tons of locally sourced wood pellets annually. Groundbreaking for the facility is scheduled for late summer.

The facility will be situated within one of the state's permanently designated Pine Tree Development Zones (PTDZ).
