In Prince George, British Columbia, Canada, green energy provider Pacific BioEnergy is currently expanding its wood pellet plant, which has now reached the halfway point. The expansion of the plant will cost in the region of $24 million (€19.7 million), making it the largest of its kind in Canada and the second largest in North America after northern Florida. The plant will double in size and a third in-feed will be installed, meaning the facility will have the ability to handle sawdust, shavings and bush grind once the build has been completed. Two new dryers will also be added to the plant. When the plant resumes operations after the construction has been completed in autumn this year, 10 direct jobs and 25 indirect jobs will become available.
