Our Projects

Pine Bluff Plant

Our facility in Pine Bluff, Arkansas delivered its first train of pellets in April 2017. This plant produces 600,000 metric tonnes of wood pellets per year for export to the European market, with plans to further increase production capacity during 2019. The independent debt project finance for this project was achieved at the end of March 2016, and in what is a record for the industry, the entire manufacturing of our equipment was completed by the end of 2016. The facility is providing around 100 full-time jobs to the local community and more than 450 direct jobs in the transport and forest industries supply chain. The direct annual economic benefit of our Pine Bluff facility is estimated at $77 million per year.

Stephens Plant

Highland owns a 300-acre site near Stephens in Arkansas where it intends to build a pellet plant of similar size to its existing Pine Bluff plant. The site has been cleared and a full Geotech report has been completed. All permits are in progress. The site is located in an excellent fiber basket and conveniently located adjacent to mainline rail for delivery of pellets to any of several South coast ports for export.

Future Locations

Highland intends to expand in the Southeast to build additional production capacity. We have several sites under consideration, each being located within abundant fiber baskets and adjacent to good logistic routes to the port. All fiber supplied to these sites will be fully sustainable from managed semi-natural forests, with a significant proportion coming from residual waste wood (shavings and woodchips) from local saw mills. Our pellets will be made to high-quality standards with low-ash content to enable use in the heating market, although their high calorific value of 18 GJ/MT also make our pellets attractive to the industrial market. The finished pellets will be transported by our logistic partners for export to the European and Asian markets.
