LowCountry Biomass, a recycler of wood residues, plans to expand its existing wood pellet manufacturing operations in Jasper County, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s Office announced last week. The $16 million investment is expected to create 26 new jobs.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to grow our company in Jasper County. South Carolina offers us an excellent business environment and a skilled workforce. We appreciate all the support we’ve received from state and local officials,” said Rhett Harwell, vice president of LowCountry Biomass.

LowCountry Biomass recently took over the operations of Champion Wood Pellets, a manufacturer of wood pellets used in home heating fuel, alternative industrial energy and equine bedding, located on Turf Road in Ridgeland. 

The company is currently operating the pellet manufacturing facility and is in the process of increasing the production capacity at the plant to 200,000 metric tons per year.
