Indeck Energy, Wood Pellet Fuel Demand High for 2010 and 2011

Use of Renewable Wood Energy to Hit 790 Trillion BTUs in 2010 and 2011

LADYSMITH, WI--(Marketwire - March 23, 2010) - According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration's Annual Energy Outlook for 2010, the use of renewable wood biomass fuels is set to hit 790 trillion BTUs in 2010 and 2011 -- the equivalent of nearly 136 million barrels of oil. This high demand may mean a shortage in available wood biomass products, such as wood pellet fuel, for retailers.

In response to the projected high demand, Indeck Ladysmith, LLC, the manufacturer of Indeck Energy Premium Wood Pellets, is offering a limited pre-order discount to retailers who order inventory before April 30.

"We understand the pressure that retailers are under," said Mike Curci, Indeck Ladysmith BioFuel Center plant superintendant. "With such high projections for the upcoming season, our goal is to ensure that retailers have the inventory to meet demand."

Indeck Energy will be offering their Premium Grade wood pellets at special pre-season pricing, while supplies last, until April 30, after which the price will increase. By ordering before April 30, Indeck Energy can guarantee retailers delivery in time for the upcoming buying season.

Indeck Energy offers a high quality, Premium Grade wood pellet that delivers significantly lower ash content than the one percent specified by the Pellet Fuel Institute.

"Indeck Energy's wood pellets are manufactured from locally grown hardwood," said Scott Freier of Freier's Electric and Heating, Inc., of Hudson, Wis., a retailer who stocks Indeck Energy Wood Pellets. "The pellets have an ash content of less than one percent, produce a high 8,500 BTUs of heat energy and have very low moisture content. They are a Premium Grade pellet."

Retailers who pre-order wood pellets before April 30 will lock-in the low, pre-season, wholesale price.
