Biomass

<br /> No part of a tree procured 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.<br /> <br /> 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.<br /> <h3> Wood Chips</h3> <ul> <li> Work with local logging contractors to debark low-value SPF (spruce, pine and fir) logs.</li> <li> Arrange for logs to be sent to chippers (the bark is stripped off and used&nbsp; for biofuel).</li> <li> Transport chips by truck and barge to clients like Howe Sound Pulp and Paper, where they are processed into kraft pulp.</li> </ul> <h3> Biofuel</h3> <ul> <li> Work with local logging contractors to arrange roadside grinding of residuals (broken stems, waste branches, etc.).</li> <li> Schedule and transport grinders to sites to turn debris piles into biofuel.</li> <li> Transport biofuel by trucks and barge to clients like Howe Sound Pulp and Paper, where it&rsquo;s burned to produce electrical power.</li> </ul>
