Sure can, But it may be a good while. The pellet furnaces are slim as it is. But down the road(unless we great something that is greener-more economical) I bet we see them. I image a corn furnace with some tweaks would do just fine with them. Seeing the corn furnaces are dead in the water with high corn prices, Its probably our best shot. If they are using green energy to do the torrifying? Yes, If they are using fossil fuels probably not. I imagine they are using the same wood to make the pellets to create the heat for the process.
