UK power stations used about 7.2m tonnes of wood pellets in 2018, accounting for about 60% of UK electricity generation. Most pellets are imported from the USA and Canada, a journey of over 4,000 miles.
SIRF Pellets offer an alternative that is not only cheaper, but also sourced from the UK. Based on carbon neutral source material – waste wood, paper and cardboard, SIRF Pellets mean a reduction in transport impact and do not require the felling of forests.
