PELLET Technology USA (PTUSA) recently announced that it has completed construction and proof-of-concept of its commercial demonstration facility in Gretna, Neb.
PTUSA is a particle sizing, biomass densification and technology licensing company.
The project was funded through private equity and a research and development grant from the state of Nebraska.
The Gretna location allows PTUSA to reach a wide range of feedstock suppliers, qualified engineering companies and end users such as livestock feedlots. Additionally, it centralizes a location between multiple universities that are willing to assist PTUSA in feed studies, and the location geographically meets the needs for building strategic agreements with equipment manufacturers, construction companies and engineering firms.
"Our commitment to invest in a high-tech commercial demonstration facility in Gretna reflects the significant opportunity and potential we see for our business in Nebraska, the Midwest and the Texas Panhandle," said Russ Zeeck, chief operation officer and founder of PTUSA. "We strive for 100% consistency and quality in our solutions by utilizing the best commercial-grade construction, exacting engineering and modern technology available."
To date, PTUSA has processed thousands of acres of biomass through the commercial demonstration facility for research and development purposes, with site development for the commercial production plant on the near horizon.
