Westervelt Renewable Energy utilizes renewable biomass to produce wood pellets, an alternative to fossil fuels used to generate electricity by utility providers worldwide. Our vertical integration with the Westervelt Company provides access to a strategically located land base certified to both SFI and FSC forestry standards. Our wood pellets are certified to Green Gold Label (GGL) standards.
From our manufacturing facility in Aliceville, Alabama, finished wood pellets travel via barge down the Tombigbee River to the Port of Mobile. After transfer to sea vessels and a trans-Atlantic voyage to Europe, they are used by utilities to reduce and/or replace coal in generating electricity.
