Start-up Companies and Entrepreneurs - Pelletco

Formed in 2010, Pelletco is a rising star in the industry of biomass fuel. Pelletco is the only company with the technology to manufacture pellets that release 11,000 BTUS/lb of energy. Their groundbreaking, patented technology will be less expensive, less harmful and more effective than the leading fuel sources. Pelletco also strives to boost regional economy by using only locally sourced materials for its pellets. In partnership with the University of Maine and the Process Development Center, Pelletco plans to commercialize its products and produce more environmentally sustainable, energy efficient types of biomass fuel.  For more information on Pelletco, visit their website.
