Altus Renewables Energy Pellet Plant in Mount Gambier will produce high quality, low carbon wood pellets from plantation forest residues, advancing the forest industry’s sustainability frontier whilst rejuvenating South Australia’s ‘Green Triangle’!
Altus Renewables Limited are currently investigating the feasibility of developing a new $120 million energy pellet plant at Mount Gambier, in the heart of South Australia’s valuable Green Triangle region.

This project referred to as the ‘Altus Green Triangle Project’, will have a manufacturing capacity of 300,000tpa of Industrial I-2 specification densified wood pellets.

Wood Beca have been working with Altus since 2018 to progress the development of this project through feasibility evaluations and are currently managing the Development Application.

Due to open in 2024, the Altus GT plant will not only be the largest pellet manufacturing facility in Australia, it will also be the first of its kind to be completely powered by biomass.

Rather than drawing electrical energy from high emissions coal fired thermal power plants, all the thermal and electrical energy demand of the pellet mill will be supplied by a captive biomass fired combined heat and power (CHP) plant.

This configuration will enable the plant to be stand-alone and operate independently from the power grid using fully renewable fuel – a win for the environment and our client!
