The Pellet Technology USA Mission:

To optimize agricultural resources
by building a bridge of consistent and quality products
for the new biomass economy while supporting our nation’s agricultural roots

Our Philosophy:

  • The Costs of Fossil Fuels

    The Industrial Revolution gave birth to liberation by fossil fuel:
             Illumination - the ability to stay up beyond sunset and be more productive
             Manufacturing - the power to create industries through machinery
             Transportation - the opportunity to hop a train and expand your horizons.
    This instrumental transformation that fossil fuels brought however, were not without their costs. Before fossil fuels, we lived on what economic historian Edward Wrigley called “the organic economy”.  

    The Tipping Point

    Todays revolution is different. Fossil fuels need help and our natural resources need to be put back in balance. Oil volatility is stressing our economy and every family can feel it. Commodities are being stretched and compressed in every direction and it makes a difference to each farmer. Pollution is overwhelming and our health is suffering.
    We have fallen into energy and food economies that have led to over-use and external dependency. Upending this system overnight would bring us to a national standstill. As a nation, we are at a critical tipping point. To topple this reliance will take a resourceful and managed approach. Pellet Technology USA knows that without the support of the American farmer, the full potential of this recovery will never be achieved.
  • Ending Energy Dependence

    Biomass energy has ancient roots. The logs in your fire are biomass. But today, biomass means all things organic that can create energy sustainably. At Pellet Technology, we are on the leading edge of discovery in this biomass economy helping to lead the way out of the food and fuel crisis.
    The byproducts of the world can feed and fuel the Ag Industry and in turn, you and I.

    The Food for Fuel Debate

    Energy and food were made to have a complementary relationship with each other. Due to geographics, economics, politics, nutrition and other competing factors, some sources get more pressure on them than others. What this pressure does is takes those relationships and makes them toxic and unsustainable.
    A prime example of this pressure is corn. The USA has an abundance of corn. It has more corn than any other nation. But corn is being squeezed beyond its limits. The food and fuel industries are competing for corn in order to solve two major problems: the reliance on foreign oil and a growing population with greater food supply needs. Should America grow corn for food or fuel?
    A current problem the USA is facing that affects both food and fuel industries is more than 60% of the Drymill Ethanol facilities are:
    ·         Undergoing major technological changes
    ·         Facing regulatory instability
    ·         and the byproducts, Dried Distillers Grains with Solubles (DDGS), are now changing
    This means that structure and pricing are not fixed but due to pollution concerns, the industry is here to stay for a long time.  This also means that the change in byproducts brings a lack of market availability in feed rations. The lack in feed rations hurts the farming and livestock industries and has the potential to cause a domino effect onto other key industries if not recognized as a problem and responded to.
    So what are we to do?
  • American Innovation

    So what is our plan at Pellet Technology? Pellet Technology does what no one else wants to do. What is hard.
    What is meant by doing what is “hard” isn’t figurative.  Pellet Technology USA’s core business is particle sizing and densification. The biomass of the earth we specialize in is typically light, airy and would be normally set aside as waste. Instead with the help of our Ag community we harvest and create pellets that can be used in multiple industrial applications.
    Fortunately through the fabric of a great team and some providentially guided experiments along the way, Pellet Technology USA has succeeded in many of its efforts and came up with a process to resourcefully guide us back to the complementary approach intended for our food and fuel. 

    The Bridge Between Two Industries

    One of the things corn farmers have noticed lately is how much more field waste they accumulate on their land. They have seen how waste from good yields will get to a point where the waste will inhibit yields or cause excess work to get rid of it.  The issue of excess field waste is only projected to grow according to multiple agricultural studies. With our farmers increasing efforts to keep up with a growing populations food demands, we've actually restricted mother natures ability to break down the biomass that crops are producing.
    Pellet Technology USA has created a solution for the accumulation and a use for this waste that helps both the feed and fuel industry issues.
  • Bringing Balance Back to Corn

    The crop residue we’re focusing on is corn stover. Since a large infrastructure for corn is already in place, it makes sense to use the biomass that’s being underutilized from this key crop. Pellet Technology USA has discovered a way to help farmers, bring balance back to our agriculture and create a viable biomass resource through our PowerPellets® and PowerFeedPellets™.
    Our patented and patent pending process allows for - Farmers to focus on their corn grain harvest, Ethanol Plants to increase the value of their new DDGS byproduct, and creates a commodity from a waste product.
    Pellet Technology USA forms a complimentary relationship with farmers to manage and create value from the over-abundance of corn stover. 

    Helping Our Farmers, Helping Each Other

    As of today, there is no faster, more cost-effective path to meaningful environmental results than by harvesting and utilizing the abundance of corn stover available right here in the USA. Wind investment only makes sense in niche markets and the best wind farm sites are claimed. Solar is too incremental. Biomass is much more economically sustainable and now has been proven.
    The problem remains, Pellet Technology USA cannot do it alone. We need the farming communities support in order to make this work economically, environmentally and together as a team. But not all farms will qualify to join the Pellet Technology USA team. Sustainability of stover, soil and a focus on our crops is a must. In order to maintain that, a rigid set of standards has been put into place for participating farmers. Pellet Technology USA is committed to making stover a sustainable resource free from political or environmental controversy. In order to do that, sustainable harvesting is just as important as economic development in the Pellet Technology USA business model.
  • Feed-plant-graphic1.png Farmer Benefits

    So how does the Pellet Technology Stover Harvesting Program help the farmer? It’s easy.
    Here’s just a short list:
    · Less stover means you can make 1-2 fewer tillage passes
    · Reduced tillage requires less labor and machinery
    · Reduced tillage will increase soil health
    · Better grain health contributes to optimized ecology
    · Warmer soil means earlier planting to maximize yields
    · Modify your crop rotation to maximize productivity
    · Make narrower rows to increase yields
    · Turn a farming cost center into a value center
    · Open your gate, we all the work or harvest your own stover and we will contract it
  • Beyond Theory

    Through successful experimentation Pellet Technology USA has designed a patented and patent pending process to consistently create stover pellets that can be used for multiple applications. Our fine-tuning of the densification process has been engineered over multiple iterations taking into consideration high-compression, low horsepower, maximum throughput, increased longevity and reduced flow restrictions. All these in-turn decrease energy inputs and maximize product outputs.
     Because of this, Pellet Technology USA has been able to design and test a turnkey engineering package for a 200,000 ton per year pellet facility in Gretna.  The Gretna facility will be expanded to meet a 4 ton/hour process rate and utilized as an R&D facility to determine the specific system requirements for future clients.  It will operate as our Commercial Demonstration Facility headquarters.

    Some Nebraska corn farmers may rely mostly on futures contracts to hedge against the rainy days they see on the horizon. Others may invest a portion of their farm income in better equipment and supplies to protect their harvest. Even others will rally up the family and work hard to make sure what does produce isn’t lost.
    All these methods of sustaining your crops and future are good. Pellet Technology USA just provides one more. If your farm is looking for an extra hedge against the pressure that is on corn, could use an additional income or is interested in contributing to your local economy, give Pellet Technology USA a call.
    One generation can alter a populations course, two generations can pave a new and brighter path.
