Touring the pellet plant and bagging line
Discussing option for processing and drying of different feedstocks for fuel
Viewing Pellagri's unique burner system that can accommodate high ash content pellet fuel
May 21, 2009 - Randy Angus, Director of Integrated Resource Management for the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI (MCPEI) toured Pellagri Energy’s operations on Thursday. Like most communities, a growing expense in First nation’s communities is being created from heating costs that are rising as global oil prices creep back up. Being more self sufficient while reducing costs and reducing green house gas emissions is a strong motivation for the group.
MCPEI brings together the First Nations Bands of Abegweit and Lennox Island. Both Band Councils provide services to their communities and costs savings on heating buildings will allow the Band to expend resources on other important socio-economic issues.
