Canada’s Wood Pellets: Leading the Way in Certified Fibre
Canada is a leading supplier of wood pellets from certified sustainable and legal sources.
Today, electric power stations in Europe and Asia are using Canadian wood pellets to displace coal and reduce fossil GHG emissions. For example, Drax Power operates the world’s largest biomass power station providing about six percent of the UK’s electricity supply. Drax was a former coal power station that converted to wood pellets, thereby reducing its GHG emissions by more than eighty percent. Many of these wood pellets are imported from Canada.
