In our state-of-the-art processing facility, we are able to grind bales, dry the fiber and process it into various size particles, including pellets and crumbles. While alternative energy was the original focus of this facility, we now serve a number of growing markets in various industries.
We continue to promote and support the establishment of these valuable native species and are proud to partner with a number of organizations with common goals.
In addition to our own products, we occasionally supply other projects with the larger samples necessary to develop their business.
We currently sell our pellets as an industrial absorbent under the brand Ernst Cuttings Pro™ and our non-pelletized absorbent product as Ernst Shale Dry™.
