MDF Or Bioenergy For Roseburg?

Roseburg reports it is exploring the feasibility of locating a second MDF panel plant or bioenergy production facility within its current Western, U.S. operating footprint. The proposed facility would use up to 300,000 bone-dry tons of wood residuals each year. This fiber would be sourced from current company operations and from existing long-term suppliers. The feasibility study is taking place, with a decision anticipated by the end of the year.

In the West, Roseburg owns more than 400,000 acres of timberland in Oregon and operates several wood products facilities in Oregon and Northern California, including an existing MDF plant in Medford, Ore. The company also owns and operates one of the world’s largest wood chip exporting operations in Coos Bay, Ore.
