E-Pellets, LLC has acquired the formerly shuttered Louisiana Pacific OSB mill in Athens, Georgia. The company plans to convert the mill into a wood pellet production facility, producing approximately 450,000 metric tons annually. The wood pellets will be exported to the European Union to be used as an alternative to coal as fuel in power plants.

E-Pellets has a long-term port agreement with Georgia Kaolin Terminal, Inc., which provides E-Pellets sufficient port capacity to export up to 1.35 million metric tons per year of wood pellets through the port facility in Savannah, Georgia. E-Pellets previously purchased another underperforming production facility in Nahunta, Georgia and is expanding the production volume. All of the wood pellets are contracted to be sent to European power producers.

Newly appointed chief executive officer Doug Albrecht leads a seasoned management team. Albrecht is the owner and operator of a major pulp, paper and forestry products company in South America. He is supported on the ground by Chief Operating officer Ken Ciarletta, logistic manager Mark Newhart, development by Ben Easterlin and general administration by Keith Hulbert.
