The Lowest CO2 Footprint in the Business

We take the sustainability of our wood pellets and wood briquettes very seriously and question every step of our process.

Sustainable leadersLand Energy has been awarded the only globally recognised Certification Mark for Sustainability for being part of UNESCO’s Galloway and Southern Ayrshire Biosphere Reserve which is recognised internationally has a world-class environment for people and nature.

The raw material that comes into our plant comes from forests within 80 miles of the factory.

The forests we use have felling licences and every tree that is felled, is replanted, typically within 12 months.

The logs we use are those that are rejected by the sawmill sector, either due to the size or shape of the timber. Logs that are too skinny, large or bent are scooped up by land Energy and put to good use in our production plant.

Where possible, we make use of our coastal location to receive deliveries by ship, helping to reduce road travel and emissions.

Land Energy products are now Grown in Britain certified

Land Energy is now *officially* Grown in Britain certified. There is growing emphasis on the importance of knowing where products are grown and produced. Grown in Britain certification encourages and supports active and sustainable management of our own forests and woodlands reducing unnecessary imports.

Production Energy

Our pellet plant in Girvan is powered entirely by our biomass CHP plant that is fuelled by mixed sources of wood chip. This strategic investment decouples us from the pricing of conventional fuels and enables us to control our own energy and production costs.

It also ensures that virtually no fossil fuels are used in our production process and that our pellets have an ultra-low carbon footprint.
