Our Biomass

We recognise the pivotal role our forests play in combating climate change and supporting diverse ecosystems. Our commitment to sustainable forestry management is reflected in our meticulous strategies that not only preserve but enhance the carbon stocks within our forests. By integrating controlled harvesting levels, we ensure a continuous yield of timber, fibre, and energy feedstock, contributing to a healthier planet.

Circular Economy in Action

Central to our operational ethos is the implementation of circular economic principles, which guide our biomass energy production. Most of the woody biomass used in our energy processes is derived from by-products or residues from our forestry and sawmilling operations. This approach minimises waste and maximises resource use, illustrating our commitment to environmental stewardship.

Advanced Biomass Conversion Technologies

We employ state-of-the-art technologies to convert biomass into renewable energy efficiently. Our facilities are equipped with modern biomass boilers and turbines that transform wood residues into clean energy. This energy powers our operations and, in some cases, feeds surplus electricity back into the local grid, further reducing our carbon footprint.

Community and Environmental Benefits

The benefits of our biomass energy production extend beyond operational efficiencies and environmental impact:

  • Local Community Support: By generating renewable energy locally, we contribute to the economic stability of the communities surrounding our operations. This initiative fosters job creation and supports local infrastructure development.

  • Reduced Greenhouse Gas Emissions: Our biomass energy solutions help reduce reliance on fossil fuels, lowering greenhouse gas emissions and contributing to global climate change mitigation efforts.

  • Wildlife Habitat Protection: By maintaining healthier forests and using only forest residues for energy, we ensure that wildlife habitats are preserved and biodiversity is protected.

 

Looking Ahead: Innovations in Biomass Energy

We are continually exploring innovative ways to enhance our biomass energy capabilities. Future projects include expanding our biomass product line to include biochar, bio coal and wood pellets, which offer promising prospects for both domestic use and international markets. These developments which will include valorisation and pyrolysis processes, are aligned with our vision to lead in sustainable forestry practices and renewable energy solutions, and reduced dependency on fossil fuels.

By supporting our biomass energy, stakeholders are part of a sustainable future that values environmental integrity and economic viability.
