US-based Mohegan - Northeast Wood Products, a subsidiary of the Mohegan Tribe, plans to have a third wood-pellet manufacturing plant up and running in Jasper, Tennessee, in November. The company recently announced the first phase of a retrofit of the plant is under way.

The facility will be capable of producing up to 125,000 tons of pellets annually.

“With Jasper being on the Tennessee River and having a forty-rail car siding, we now have easy access to the Gulf, East Coast ports and points beyond. I’m looking forward to the near future when we have additional announcements of our global development”,said NWP President Guy Mozzicato, as quoted by Biomass Magazine.
