LOST RIVER, WV, July 8, 2010 (RISI) -The vetting of a wood biomass energy plant or wood pellet mill proposal can, in no small terms, be a rigorous and frustrating process. As wave after wave of project announcements have appeared over the past couple years, more than a few have fallen by the wayside, having failed to survive scrutiny.

To date, 132 wood energy plants and 83 wood pellet mills are in development (or recently started) across North America, according to RISI's Wood Biomass Project Database.
