Sustainably produced wood pellets deliver real carbon savings when compared to fossil fuels.

Replacing coal with industrial wood pellets has been shown to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide, sulphur oxides, and nitrogen oxides.

“Switching to industrial wood pellets from coal can reduce carbon emissions 74-90%" – UK Environment Agency

Industrial wood pellets are low in sulfur, chlorine, and nitrogen. They also have lower concentrations than coal of trace metals including mercury, arsenic, beryllium, cadmium, and lead. Using wood pellets instead of coal releases much less of these elements into the atmosphere.

When complete replacement is not possible, co-firing industrial wood pellets alongside coal reduces emissions of pollutants such sulfur, ash, nitrogen, mercury and other pollutants that are harmful to the environment, according to studies by the US Environmental Protection Agency and other government scientists.
