Forest Fuels supplies high quality wood pellets, in both blown and bagged deliveries.
The pellets are high quality 6mm pellets which meet the European Standard CEN/TS 14961. They are manufactured from 100% virgin timber, all of which is sourced from sustainably managed woodlands in the UK. This means that the raw material is transported over a relatively short distance and so has low carbon impact; and also that it is a by-product of Forestry Commission-approved sustainable woodland management which has many other environmental & economic benefits. No timber is imported from overseas for the pellet manufacture.
We deliver in 6 or 8 wheel bulk blowing delivery lorries with drivers specifically trained in the delivery of wood pellets.
We are also able to supply Grade B pellets. These are cheaper, and a viable option for larger boilers.
Wood pellets are made from sustainably sourced dry sawdust which is compressed under high pressure. This combination of low moisture content, typically 8-10%, and high density means that wood pellets are a particularly high energy fuel: even higher than wood in its natural form.
Their high density also means that wood pellets require less storage space than wood chip and are particularly suited to smaller biomass boilers.
Wood pellets are only as good as the standard to which they are manufactured. Poor quality pellets can disintegrate into sawdust and cause problems in your biomass boiler or fuel store and may have lower energy density and higher levels of contaminants.
Forest Fuels offers supply contracts that guarantee quantities and qualities of wood pellet for fuel which are tailored to meet their customers’ needs. A long term contract provides the opportunity for planning and has the benefit of ensuring a secure supply at the most advantageous price.
Typical supply options include:
- Long term (3-5 years) wood fuel supply contract
- ‘One off’ or emergency delivery
- Fuel can be supplied by the kWh or tonne
