DOTHAN, Ala. – A site dedicated to sustainable and renewable bioenergy has made its home in Dothan, Alabama. A partnership between Rex Lumber and Brian Fehr Group led to the grand opening of Peak Renewable BioEnergy. Peak Renewables BioEnergy is a Canadian company that says it is dedicated to harnessing the power of renewable resources and sustainable practices to reduce its carbon footprint and ensure a sustainable, clean energy future.
