Premium Pellet Ltd.
"Our primary goal at Premium Pellet is to be an international biomass energy producer, providing a high quality value added product that will provide a competitive, environmentally based energy source."


Welcome to Premium Pellet Ltd.

Premium Pellet Ltd. (Premium Pellet) has become a household name in Vanderhoof, British Columbia, where it has been in operation since 2001. The plant is wholly owned and operated by Nechako Lumber Co. Ltd., a division of Sinclar Group Forest Products. Premium Pellet is your choice for environmentally friendly, premium quality pellets. As part of Sinclar's focus on driving value from the full fibre basket, we are recovering fibre from harvesting areas that do not meet our sawmill specifications and directing that fibre for pelletizing in our plant.


Production Availability and Volume


Premium Pellet has a current production capability of 170,000 tonnes of high quality, premium grade wood pellets annually. The pellet mill is positioned on a major highway and a major rail line and has been designed for efficient operations, shipping and handling.

The vast majority of pellets produced are sold in bulk to overseas markets, but a small amount is packaged in 40lb bags for the local home heating market.
