Canada’s Wood Pellets: Responsible, Renewable Clean Energy.
Today in Canada’s forest sector, an increasing amount of forest residuals left over after harvesting, sawmilling and low quality logs traditionally left as waste are being turned into wood pellets. These pellets are sold around the world to produce clean energy, displace fossil fuels and support efforts to meet important global climate change targets.
