1. Site selection for wood pellet plant

The wood pellet plant production planned is supposed to be located not farther than 50 km from the raw material base. Such distance is economically acceptable if to take transporting costs into consideration. Over 50 % of the territory used will be covered with forests (it’s over 100.000 ha). The main idea of the developed wood pellet plant project is to arrange collecting and pelleting forest waste and the waste from sawmills. The ways of feedstock delivery for wood pellet plant are also thought over and described.

In the section "Wood residues" the technical characteristics of wood and wood waste are given. It’s noted that wood waste may reach 18% of the gross timber volume. Moreover, in forests for every 100 m3 of a forest 15 m3 of brushwood and approximately 25 - 30 m3 of roots remain. It’s a really sufficient volume for organizing and supporting a permanent wood pellet production process.

2. Investment analysis of wood pellet plant

The intended production volume of wood pellet plants is 24 000 tones per year, the maximum capacity – 70%. The required investments are planned to be spent for building works, transformer stations, a wood pellet plant, a truck with a crane and trailer, a loader with attachments, a forklift, as well as a permanent working capital and some other wood pellet plant production needs.

3. Expected ways of cooperation with potential investors for wood pellet plant

For example, the distribution of shares of the wood pellet plant and the distribution of profits are given.

The developed wood pellet plant project on producing fuel pellets from wood waste is viable and having good prospects. It would be really valuable for future wood pellet plant investors due to its profitability, novelty and a high demand for such kind of production on the world energy markets.

According to the World Bioenergy Association, wood pellets have the potential to replace coal in power generation facilities. In recent years, as technology has evolved, wood pellets have undergone a number of thermal upgrades through various processes such as baking, hydrothermal carbonization and steam blasting.

The thermal upgrading allows wood pellets to be used as a fuel with coal characteristics. Asia Pacific, which has the largest number of coal-fired power plants globally, is expected to be a market growth opportunity in the near future.
