Our chips and pellets offer a highly attractive alternative to traditional biomass products: they are produced from sustainable energy crops, available in large volumes, and are an excellent energy source.
Bamboo pellets help fight climate change because the crops sequester more carbon during their growth than is released when the pellets are combusted and they are used in place of non-renewable fossil fuels like coal, oil and natural gas. Our crops are dedicated energy crops suited to low grade land, do not compete with food crops and actually have the potential to improve soil quality. Please refer to our sustainability page for more information on our story.
A key advantage of our product is our ability to supply large volumes compared with traditional biomass products. Because of the rapid growth rate of our species and our intensive planting and harvesting method, our crops yield as much as 200-220 tons per hectare per year of raw biomass, and 100-120 tons per hectare per year of dried end product. For further information about volumes and pricing please contact us.
Independent lab testing (see below) has shown that our pellets have excellent structural characteristics and a high calorific value. We are confident that our energy crop chips and pellets are very competitive against other biomass products but we always encourage our customers to test the product for themselves and are happy to provide a sample for this purpose.
