Biomass

No part of a tree logged by Ledcor is left to waste. This means even twigs and bark are ground or chipped into biomass products, such as wood chips and biofuel/hog fuel.

We use company-owned harvesting, grinding and chipping machinery, along with trucks and barges to process and transport our biomass products to the end-users.

Wood Chips

  • Work with local logging contractors to debark low-value SPF (spruce, pine and fir) logs.
  • Arrange for logs to be sent to chippers (the bark is stripped off and used  for biofuel).
  • Transport chips by truck and barge to clients like Howe Sound Pulp and Paper, where they are processed into kraft pulp.

Biofuel

  • Work with local logging contractors to arrange roadside grinding of residuals (broken stems, waste branches, etc.).
  • Schedule and transport grinders to sites to turn debris piles into biofuel.
  • Transport biofuel by trucks and barge to clients like Howe Sound Pulp and Paper, where it’s burned to produce electrical power.
