It’s a $1.2 million dollar project designed to insulate and dry–out moisture from wood.The Northeast Michigan Rehabilitation and Opportunity Center lifted dirt with their community partners for the groundbreaking event. NEMROC has been drying wood with kilns since the early 90’s, but now the structure is getting too old.CEO Dave Szydlowski says he won’t destroy the rusted kilns. NEMROC will use them as pre–dryers.He says, “Envision 300 semi-trucks rolling out of here in the course of a year. That’s the volume of wood we’ll produce, and a lot of people don’t realize how much moisture is in wood. When we’re dying a 50,000 board foot kiln of oak, we’re probably going to remove a little over 11,000 gallons of water.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisContinue ReadingPrevious Plan sweet recipes for summer pie baking contestNext Photo of the Day for Monday, May 6last_img read more
