Wood Pellets: A Renewable and Sustainable Source of Energy

Wood pellets are a renewable and sustainable source of energy fuel manufactured entirely from wood residues. They are a carbon neutral source of energy, and the most cost effective and environmentally friendly type of biomass available in industrial scale. 

In recent years, wood pellets have largely been used as a substitute to coal and other pollutant fossil fuels used around the world. On average, wood pellets cost between 25-30% less than heating oil and is a much cleaner method. 

"Canada's forests represent a tremendously abundant source of biomass. Biomass is the basis for making renewable bioenergy, biofuels and other bio-products that are increasingly replacing fossil-fuel based products".

Canada is one of the largest producers of high quality wood pellets amd Viridis is an important player in the industry.
