Second Japanese company signs up for Pinnacle’s pellets

Wood pellets in high demand for biomass energy as Hanwa buys tonnes of business with Pinnacle

A month after Pinnacle Renewable Energy Group announced a pellet contract with a Japanese company, they’ve signed another with a second Japanese trading company.

Starting in 2022, Pinnacle will sell 75,000 tonnes of industrial wood pellets to Hanwa Co. Ltd. on a long-term, take-or-pay agreement. Hanwa plans to use the pellets for a biomass power generation plant, which will help Japan’s carbon-reduction program.
