Forestalia invests 17 million in the largest pellet production plant in Spain

FORESTALIA

It is a technologically advanced and highly automated plant in all processes of wood treatment, for its chipping, grinding, drying and granulation.

Arapellet will have a production capacity of 140 thousand tons per year, which will be destined mainly for export. When the total volume of investment in the Errago municipality of Zaragoza is completed, which will exceed 17 million euros, people will work in the 30 plant, and additional 100 jobs will be created dedicated to biomass supply activities.

The supply of wood and its byproducts comes from the use of sustainable forestry, through work both clearing, clearing and cleaning of mountains, as well as through auctions or uses, for which it has specialized machinery, such as processors, forwarders, skidders and motoserristas, also resorting to the subcontracting of external equipment that have forest processing equipment. This supply is operated within a radius of 250 kilometers around Erla, reaching the autonomous communities of Aragón, Navarra, La Rioja, Cataluña, Castilla-León, Castilla La Mancha and País Vasco.
