Roddickton, NL – A local forestry entrepreneur has plans to build a pellet plant in Roddickton, NL, according to Aaron Beswick of The Northern Pen newspaper.  Ted Lewis, who owns a local logging operation and sawmill, is considering creating a pellet plant that would use sawmill residue and wood that is unsuitable for sawlogs.  The peninsula’s pulpwood and sawdust market has dropped off since Corner Brook Pulp and Paper shut down one of its paper mills last year.  The plant would produce about 50,000 tonnes of pellets annually, which could be shipped to mainland Canada and across the island.  The plan has received support from the Northern Peninsula Forest Resources Association.
