How do we make our wood pellets?

One of the things that makes SDL Pellets unique compared to our competitors is that we manage the whole wood pellet-making process from start to finish, right here in the UK. All our wood pellets are produced using local sawmill by-products, and none of the trees we use at SDL were felled with the intention of making wood pellets. As they are all sourced from within the UK the green miles to transport them to our pellet line are also reduced.

Furthermore, our pellet line is powered using renewable energy, from our own biomass powered combine heat and energy system, run on the pellets we produce ourselves.

Even the waste heat from our pellet line is used to dry out sawdust that we collect on site, so we ensure that material or energy waste is minimised as best we can.
