And we’ve been doing this successfully for 20 years. From day one we’ve focussed on regional structures and energy efficiency when producing our wood fuels, such as pellets and briquettes, and met the most stringent regulations surrounding the timber sourced from PEFC certified forests. Together with about 100 employees at our production sites and various storage and distribution facilities, we guarantee the effective and environmentally efficient delivery of wood pellets for all commercial and domestic heating systems throughout Germany and neighbouring countries. Our goal is to help deliver an energy efficiency revolution and we are, therefore, committed to offering additional services for all aspects of pellet heating and individual solutions, e.g. pellet contracting or providing biomass for generating heat and green electricity. For us and for others.
We generally purchase the shavings and wood chips for our premium pellets and briquettes from local saw mills close to our production sites. At some sites, we additionally generate renewable electricity during the production process which is fed back into the grid.
In cooperation with the German Pellet Institute (DEPI), the Technology and Support Centre (TFZ), the product testing and inspection service Eurofins, we fully support the wood pellet screening project (HoPeS) of the German Biomass Research Centre (DBFZ). Furthermore, we have for many years been actively involved in the cultivation of alternative resources, such as short rotation coppices (SRC). With the help of project partners and farmers, these alternative resources will become an integral part of our raw material and fuel input.
