Pinnacle Renewable Energy recently began running a new bed dryer at its facility in Williams Lake, B.C.

According to the Williams Lake Tribune, the dryer is not running at full speed yet, but is in the commissioning stage. The installation of the new dryer is part of Pinnacle’s $30 million investment at its Williams Lake and Meadow Bank plants.

There are multiple benefits to the new bed dryer, which replaces the old drum dryer: it can handle and evaporate more water from fibre, is better for the environment, operates at a lower temperature, thereby reducing fire and explosion risks, and reduces noise levels.

With this new dryer, the Williams Lake plant can now bring in bush grind for fibre, the Williams Lake Tribune reports.
