BCEA Winners’ Profiles
Pinnacle Renewable Energy Inc. is proudly British Columbian, currently operating 6 pellet producing plants within BC and set to open its own world class export terminal in Prince Rupert in November 2013. Westview Terminal, as it will be known, will be the world’s first dedicated wood pellet terminal capable of loading panamax class vessels.
With the completion of Westview Terminal drawing near, Pinnacle is turning its attention to organic growth and expecting to see a number of plants added in the next few years.
Pinnacle’s pellet plants all draw mill and harvesting residuals from sawmilling operations throughout the province. This waste material was once burned at source, simply to get rid of it. However, it now provides the source fibre for wood pellets that are burned for a meaningful purpose -creating energy and heat. One of Pinnacles’ proudest achievements has been the fact that we are directly responsible for shutting down more than 12 beehive burners throughout our Province.
