NMTC Amount: $7,350,000

Est. Total Project Cost: $33,268,868


The Maine Woods Pellet Company, an existing successful vertically-integrated, third-generation family owned white wood pellet manufacturing and timberland business based on a 55-acre site in rural Athens, Maine, added a new all-in-one biomass processor, boiler and steam turbine power generation unit to help reduce its energy costs. The project gives the pellet business the ability to continue and significantly increase its 100,000 ton per year production at a time when energy costs have become the one of the most problematic and limiting factors. The project has the added benefits of using locally harvested waste wood biomass as its fuel source to generate electricity and to provide thermal output to be used as part of the wood pellet manufacturing process.
