American BioCarbon to develop bio-coal from Louisiana bagasse to power Europe

In Louisiana, American BioCarbon, formerly known as NFR BioEnergy, will set up a facility to produce 200,000 tons per year of biomass pellets from 600,000 tons of the bagasse byproduct at the Cora Texas Manufacturing sugar mill in White Castle. With little expected near-term demand for firing the bio-coal with fossil coal in the local market, Europe is the likely destination for the pellets. It is hoped that as many as 10 such facilities could be built across the southern region of the state by 2019.
