Pinnacle, Westervelt, Two Rivers Come Together

Pinnacle Renewable Energy plans to build an industrial wood pellet production facility in the Southeast U.S. at Demopolis, Ala., in close proximity to its Aliceville, Ala. facility. The new mill will be located adjacent an existing large sawmill in Demopolis.

The Demopolis facility is expected to have annual production volume of 360,000 metric tons. The Demopolis facility will operate under a single partnership with Pinnacle, The Westervelt Company (TWC), and Two Rivers Lumber (TRL) holding a 70%, 20% and 10% interest, respectively.

The Demopolis facility is in the final stages of design and construction planning. Long-term fiber supply agreements have been completed with the majority of suppliers, including Westervelt and Two Rivers Lumber, which has built a new sawmill at Demopolis that will supply the new pellet mill
