• We have been producing high quality wood pellets from virgin hard wood shavings locally at our sawmill in Midlothian for over 5 years.

All the shavings are produced from virgin hard wood which are a bi product of our sawmill process, therefore making them more sustainable and environmentally friendly than pellets produced from round timber.

  • Our wood pellets are produced from virgin hardwood this ensures a high quality, even burning pellet, with a higher calorific value and lower ash content than pellets produced from soft wood such as pine. This equates to 11% more Kw hr /ton than softwood pellets. For every 1000kg of softwood pellets you only need 890kg of our pellets to produce the same Kw/hr making a saving for our customers and the environment.
