The purpose of this document is to explore the potential environmental impacts of adding a wood milling facility to an industrial lumber yard. The goal of the facility is to produce a finely milled wood flour that can be used in processes such as the production of wood pellets for fuel or chemical processes such as enzymatic hydrolysis, a process that turns wood sugars into a liquid fuel. The target for this projects is the Hermann Brothers log yard located southwest of the City of Port Angeles, at 404 Eclipse W Dr, Port Angeles, WA 98363. Hermann Brothers is a logging company that has an extensive established infrastructure for obtaining, shipping, and processing logging slash. Hermann Brothers is an ideal company because they have an active commitment to environmental projects, and are a fairly diverse company that deals not only in logging, but also in the production and selling of various wood chip products.
