    Where can I go to find a list of companies that take biomass/woodchips for fuel? Does anyone know of places near Augusta, GA?

    You have to look for paper mills and manufacturing facilities who need steam to run a plant. You may have to provide samples of your products as many don't take leaves and pine needles in with the wood chips. There may also be a criteria for moisture as well.

    Hope this helps!

    x2 on paper mills. For years we would load 53’ dry vans and I would haul them to two different paper mills that used wood chip fired boilers. The stock piles were so large a d6 ran nearly every day shoving the loads off the tippers. Unfortunately these two big mills only took in loads by the semi far as i could tell.

    I’d call International Paper, although I see they are slated to close sometime in the near future just like all our local mills have around here :(

    Try municipalities and parks that need chips for mulch.

    Or farmers that use it for composting. There's also been a surge in science where scientists are using chips and sawdust in septic systems, using the chips in the leaching areas to absorb nitrogen as a byproduct. Could be a big industry where septic systems are used or even sewer treatment plants.

    I tried to call International Paper, however, they were bought out in January. I have tried to contact them using the "contact us" link on the website, with no response... any other ideas?
