At the New England Wood Pellet factory we learned the in's and out's of pellet production. We followed the flow of wood chips and sawdust through the plant till they had been packaged. We watched the chips be dried, sent through the pellet dies, and then cooled and stored for delivery to home and business across New England. Wood pellets offer a fraction of toxic emissions compared to oil or gas. At Dublin, we use pellet burners to heat Gillespie Hall, Lehmann, Monadnock, the Whitney Gymnasium and several other buildings on campus.
