The OGS facilities will have the capability to produce three types of biomass pellets. The production line will be tasked to produce one of the three kinds of pellets now in use for power generation abroad and can be re-tasked in relatively short order, depending on the demands of an evolving market.

White Pellets

White pellets are at this time, the most commonly used pellets in power generation. They are the most economical but do require special and expensive accommodations to be burned in conjunction with coal.  They have a moisture content of from 7-10%, are hydroscopic (readily absorb water), and are the least expensive to manufacture.

High Energy EN+ Pellets

These pellets are sold at a higher cost than white pellets for a number of reasons, including but not limited to; Their ability to be co-fired with coal for energy production, as opposed to being fired in a separate burner which white pellets require; Their higher energy density; They are more effcient to store and ship; Their ability to maximize power plant output.

Torrefied Pellets

Although the most expensive to produce, these are the gold standard of biomass pellets. This product is roasted in a low oxygen environment to produce its unique qualities. They are not as widely used as white and EN+ pellets at this time, but this may soon be the most sought after product in this arena for a number of reasons. They are hydrophobic (repel water) thus requiring fewer precautions in storage and shipping. They can be processed and co-fired in coal plants with no special accommodations. They contain the least amount of moisture of any of the pellets. They produce the highest energy values. OGS will be engineering the capability to add-on the ability to produce these pellets as market demands become more prevalent.
