Wood Pellet Plant hiring local workers

NAHUNTA, GA – Varn Wood Products has announced plans to build a wood pellet plant at its Hoboken sawmill site. The plant will hire 12 to 14 employees.

The plant will make the pellets out of pine byproducts from the sawmill. It is being designed to produce 80,000 tons of pellets a year but will increase to 120,000 tons a year if needed. The bulk of the pellets will be shipped to Europe, where coal-fired plants are being converted to biomass fuel.

Some wood pellets will also be sold in the U.S. as animal litter. The plant is scheduled to start production in the fall of 2012.
