Expansion in the works for Atikokan wood pellet mill

The new Northern Ontario owners of an Atikokan wood pellet plant are in expansion mode, with plans to add jobs, diversify their product mix, and explore export opportunities.

BioPower Sustainable Energy Corporation, a green energy startup, has taken control of the former Rentech plant, which has an existing supply contract to provide the nearby Ontario Power Generation (OPG) Atikokan plant with commercial-grade pellets.
