Why choose Azwood pellet fuel

Repurposing residues into wood pellet fuel

We work with local industries to repurpose wood residues to manufacture pellet fuels and other sustainable products. 

We believe in being resourceful and making the most of what we've been given. This means we're helping reduce landfill waste, keep waterways clean, and stop wood residues from littering the environment.

A clean energy solution

Pellet fuel for home heating

The Azwood® range of certified wood pellet fuel is a renewable resource derived from natural wood residues that would otherwise end up in dumpsites or landfills. Pellet fuel is carbon-neutral and has fewer emissions than other fuels because of its low moisture and high energy output, making it cleaner for the environment.

What I really like about Azwood® pellets is that there is very little ash. The remaining ash goes into the compost, which is also good for the environment. The pellets burn well and put out a lot of heat. It’s so easy to go to a big box store, grab a couple of bags, and you’re set.
