Laois Sawmills produces 25000 tonnes of 6mm wood pellets annually in Ireland. Our wood pellets are produced from raw material from our sawmill, this gives us control of our own supply and gives a greater security to our customers.
Ethically and sustainably sourced logs enter our sawmill and are refined and made into usuable products. Before entering the sawmill all logs are debarked. The raw material for the wood pellets is made up sawdust and wood chip which is a by product of our sawmill. The sawmill and Green Wood Pellets have a symbiotic relationship which ensures that waste is reduced and our energy usage is a small fraction of our energy output.
All our wood chip and sawdust is bark free thus reducing ash content and raising our calorific value, the wood pellets are EN Plus A1 quality award certified and all material used is from FSC certified material. Our wood pellets are the highest quality in Ireland.
