Great Northern Timber is proud to announce that our pellet mill will soon be certified to Sustainable Biomass Program (SBP)! Great Northern Timber Resources (GNTR) has been working diligently over the past several months to achieve this new level of product certification. The Sustainable Biomass Program is a unique certification system designed for woody biomass, mostly in the form of wood pellets and wood chips, used in industrial, large-scale energy production. SBP’s vision is an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable woody biomass supply chain that contributes to a low carbon economy. SBP has developed a certification system to provide assurance that woody biomass is sourced from legal and sustainable sources. Read more at; https://sbp-cert.org/docs/SBP_Overview_Final_Mar18.pdf
