LOS ANGELES , August 23, 2011 () – Wood pellet producer Fram Renewable Fuels LLC and Telfair Forest Products LLC (TFP) have entered into an agreement to build a plant to make wood pellets at TFP’s Lumber City, Georgia, operation, reported Biomass Magazine on Aug. 22.

Construction of the plant, which is expected to consume up to 350,000 tons per year of raw materials from the local area to make about 125,000 tons/year of wood pellets, is slated to begin this month.

The project is widely supported by the local community. The plant will employ about 25 people when it starts operating, which is expected in January 2012.

Fram, which is headquartered in Richmond Hills, Georgia, expects to sell the output from the new facility mostly with its existing customers in the European Union, where demand is expected to continue to grow over the next 10 years, Biomass Magazine reported.

The company said it will help fill that growing demand through expansion with strategic partners, and is now evaluating sites in central Georgia.

The plant to be built in Lumber City will be an addition to TFP’s current production at the site of premium-quality pine shavings used for horse and animal bedding, reported Biomass Magazine.
