November 13, 2015 - A clever video from Pinnacle Renewable Energy takes the public on a step-by-step journey of how wood pellets are made in a modern facility.

Created using time-lapse white-board drawing, the two-minute video takes viewers through the entire process, from tree growth and harvesting for sawmill production, through the collection and treatment of sawmill residuals, fibre processing, pelletizing right through to storage. Along the way the carbon cycle of the industry is explained, and the sustainable nature of the raw material made clear.
