Zilkha Pellet Mill

(Selma, Alabama) Schneider Industries has been appointed to hold a negotiated sale of the entire facility pursuant to an order by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the southern state of Alabama, Case 21-20043.

Along with the machinery and other equipment, hundreds of tons of finished product are also now available for sale. Assets can be purchased as a complete package or by piece. Featured items include two complete pelletizing lines; truck loadout; river barge loading; Andritz pellet mills; scrubbers; pellet dryers; drag conveyors; bucket elevators; hammer mills; air compressors; pumps; transformers; substations; cyclones; magnets, and much more. There are over 880 pieces of equipment to be sold. Assets not sold through an orderly negotiated sale, will be sold at an online public auction.

Of note, the Alabama mill produced over 240,000 metric tons of black pellets per year. The Zilkha black pellet represents a revolutionary advancement in the pellet industry. Black pellets are additive-free and water-resistant, durable, energy-dense and an ideal replacement for coal. Zilkha biomass pellets serve multiple markets, including the fossil fuel energy market.

Over 880 lots are currently on sale now until all assets have been sold; then remaining assets will go to public auction. Inspection is by appointment only.
