This week is the Alaska Wood Energy Conference in Fairbanks, and today a pre-conference tour to Superior Pellet Company will kick off the event (there was an early registration, thus this is not a solicitation for participants).  The latest product folks will see on the tour is….a log. Actually, it looks like a gigantic pellet, and is made in the same way as the .5″ pellets you can hold in your hand; it is extruded from a mix of fine wood particles and thus has a glossy finish.  The logs are longer burning than a natural chunk of wood, and have had the bark removed.  http://www.newsminer.com/news/local_news/pellet-log-sales-are-hot-for-north-pole-company/article_2a073e7e-9c68-11e3-9bb2-0017a43b2370.html will give more information!
