Rentech’s Atikokan facility in Ontario, Canada, achieved record production of approximately 1,850 metric tons of wood pellets for the week ended November 14. The plant’s design capacity is 110,000 metric tons per year, or 2,115 metric tons per week, as the company said in the press release received by Lesprom Network.
The Wawa facility resumed pellet production this past Friday, having been offline to modify the log in-feed system and complete the most critical phase of its conveyer replacements.
Wawa has been operating at approximately 30% of design capacity since coming online, and is again shipping pellets to the port of Quebec, for delivery to Drax. We expect to complete the second phase of conveyance replacements at Wawa in the 1Q 2016, with the goal of operating at full capacity in the second half of the 2016.
