The cause of the explosion and resulting fire at the Pacific BioEnergy Pellet Plant in Prince George, British Columbia on December 17, 2010 was been determined.

The blast was ignited by sparks in the plant’s fibre drying system.

The company has now made some changes to that system to prevent another explosion.

Normal operations are expected to resume at the plant today. Because the company had a pellet reserve of several tons, the downtime did not cause any significant production loss.
