Büttner Gets Highland Pellets Order

Highland Pellets has ordered four new drum dryers from Siempelkamp subsidiary Büttner for Highland’s industrial wood pellet facility in Pine Bluff, Ark. Highland Pellets has been operating a plant for the production of wood pellets since 2017, which are mainly supplied to the European market. However, the eight existing dryers—four predryers and four main dryers from another supplier—did not achieve the planned capacity so replacement with new equipment was necessary.

Four existing energy plants in Pine Bluff will be connected to the four identical, directly heated drum dryers type 4.2 x 24 R.

“The new high performance drying technology will significantly improve production volumes, quality, reliability and ensure we remain in full compliance with our air permit obligations,” says Jeff Vanderpool, CEO of Highland Pellets LLC.
