Enviva Tuesday participated in the North Carolina Clean Energy Youth Apprenticeship Program held at Halifax Community College.

In the morning session, Northampton Plant Manager Greg Rhodes, Operations Manager Dustin DeLoatch, Human Resources Manager Chris Watford and EHS Manager Clint Dousay provided an in-depth look at what it takes to make a wood pellet and walked around with buckets of the different stages of a wood pellet for the students to reference — chips, chopped and dried chips, and then pellets.

In the afternoon, Lauren Killian, commodity manager, and Chris Brown, community relations senior manager, led a discussion on forestry in North Carolina and how Enviva operates its Responsible Sourcing Policy and Track & Trace program.  

To wrap up the program, Enviva played a #ForestProud video and invited Edna Williams, who was featured in the video, to provide an overview of her family farm where she cultivates a small farm and grows trees along the back of her property.  

The apprenticeship program is designed to inspire and train community college and high school students to work in the state’s burgeoning clean energy economy.
