January 12, 2016 – The newest white paper from the team at FutureMetrics focuses on why some pellet projects fail to perform as expected.

Authored by FutureMetrics operations consultant John Swaan, this white paper could be called "wood pellet making 101". It highlights several critical areas in the process of converting wood to wood pellets.

Making wood pellets appears to be a simple and straight forward process: take wood chips or sawdust and dry the material to a specified moisture content, mill to a very small particle size, press into a pellet, and load into bags or into bulk carriers. The reality of making wood pellets is far more complex.

The white paper offers some checklists with some of the more common areas that turn into project showstoppers and/or margin minimizers.

The free White Paper can be downloaded from the FutureMetrics website at www.FutureMetrics.com.
