Alaska gets its first large scale wood-pellet plant

A new Alaska company, Superior Pellet Fuels, plans to build the facility in North Pole this summer. The company will process local waste wood from forest clearing projects and saw mills into a dry, clean burning fuel for pellet stoves and boilers. Company Manager Chad Schumacher says at current prices, pellets are an economical heating fuel.
