Rentech's wood processing business consists of the manufacture of wood chips and wood pellets.
Rentech, through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Fulghum Fibres, processes approximately 15 million tonnes of wood and bark annually into wood chips and residual fuels at its 31 wood chipping mills, 26 of which are located in the U.S. and 5 of which are located in South America.
Wood pellets provide a clean energy source for power generation.
Through its wholly owned subsidiary, New England Wood Pellet, Rentech is one of the largest producer of pellets for the U.S. Northeast heating market.
The Company has converted two existing fibre mills in Eastern Canada to produce wood pellets for industrial use.
