First Bulk Shipment Received in Europe

 In News

In February 2012, New Biomass Energy shipped 1200 metric tons of torrefied wood pellets to a major utility company in Europe. This is the second transatlantic shipment of torrefied pellets by NBE (the only company in the world that has made transatlantic shipments of torrefied pellets) and the largest single shipment of torrefied wood pellets by any manufacturer to date. 

The torrefied wood pellets from our Quitman plant were loaded from our storage silo onto trucks over scales and transported to the port, loaded onto a bulk cargo ship for transport to Europe, and received at the port in Europe.

The shipment was made pursuant to a special 3 year bulk shipping permit issued to NBE by the US Department of Homeland Security and The US Coast Guard. NBE has conducted extensive safety testing of torrefied pellets to obtain the permit and to support the handling of the product. 

This is an incredible milestone for the torrefaction industry and we are grateful for everyone’s contributions that helped make this shipment possible. We are proud to be the leader of torrefied wood manufacturing and supplying to energy producers worldwide.
