In June 2007 TREECYCLE supplied an Electric Horizontal Grinder Recycler to EC Biomass in Coega, the IDC development region near Port Elizabeth in the Eastern Cape.
EC Biomass has become one of the largest fuel pellet manufacturers
in South Africa, with a current production of 50 000 tons of biomass
pellets per year.
Thousands of tons of saw mill waste and forest residue from surrounding areas is processed through the Horizontal Grinder in order to make a uniform chip size.
The chipped wood then enters the compression process.
