Wood Pellets Environmental Benefits
One of the most well known benefits of wood pellets is their reduced environmental impact. When compared to the likes of heating oil and gas, wood pellets are much more eco-friendly due to their sustainability and position as a renewable fuel.
Wood Pellet Environmental Benefits
- Reduced C02 emissions
The burning of wood pellets produces much less C02 emissions when compared to the likes of heating oil. Wood pellets are considered to be carbon neutral, as the C02 released when burnt is the same amount absorbed by the trees planted to replace them. In addition, the manufacturing and transport of locally sourced wood pellets also results in reduced C02 emissions.
- 100% renewable
Wood pellets are manufactured from completely renewable sources. They are produced using virgin wood taken from sustainable, responsibly managed woodlands or manufactured using wood waste otherwise destined for landfills.
- Lower pollution
Wood pellets produce up to 90% less C02 when compared to heating oil, helping to reduce the impact our energy production has on the environment. It is also less pollutant as it reduces the amount of wood waste sent to landfill and is not an environmental risk if spilled.
Wood pellets are widely considered to be one of the more environmentally friendly types of fuel and their renewable qualities means that this cycle can continue and hopefully reduce the impact energy production is having on the environment.
