At Rentech, we process natural resources into higher value products. We transform wood fibre into wood chips and wood pellets.
Wood Fibre Processing
Through our wholly owned subsidiary, Fulghum Fibres, Rentech offers a full range of integrated fibre services including, wood chipping, operations, marketing, trading and vessel loading. Over the past 25 years, Fulghum Fibres has grown to become one of the largest independent processors of wood fibre for the pulp, paper and packaging industry. We process approximately 15 million tonnes of wood and bark annually into high quality wood chips and residual fuels.
Rentech’s New England Wood Pellet subsidiary is the largest producer of bagged pellets for the growing U.S. heating market. Known for its high quality products, New England Wood Pellet commands an approximate 15% share of the market for heating pellets in the U.S. Northeast. The company is one of the largest suppliers of wood pellets to major retailers including Home Depot, Lowe’s, and Tractor Supply.
Rentech operates two wood pellet facilities in Eastern Canada. These plants supply pellets to utilities in Canada and Europe under long-term contracts. In conjunction with these facilities, Rentech secured a long-term arrangement for exclusive priority access at the Port of Quebec for handling, loading and storage of over 1 million tons of pellets annually.
Together, these businesses provide a complementary and strategic platform for diversified growth and leadership in the expanding global wood fibre industry.
