How we process wood residues into pellet fuel

Repurposing industries' wood waste into clean energy

Each year, we collect 4 million tons of wood residues from sawmills, the construction industry, and pine forests across the South Island. 

Residues are separated, dried, and then compressed into wood pellets. Pellets are then tested, bagged, sealed, and sold to our retail partners - ready to heat Kiwi homes.
