The work included, business development, process design, budget preparation, and preliminary design engineering.
It involved a proposed portable chipping plant (a ‘Deal Processor’) to take refuse from a dry land sort and turn it into wood chips or hog fuel for delivery to coastal pulp and paper mills.

The portable plant would be located at the dry land sort to handle the refuse generated by the sorting operation. Pulp logs could also be processed, when available, along with refuse and shorts from other local logging operations.

Wood chips and hog fuel would be stored at the site or shipped directly by truck or barge to local pulp and paper mills. Some of the wood presently directed to hog fuel could now be converted into more valuable wood chips creating more value in the sorting process.
