Do you want to know more about Stora Enso?
Stora Enso’s quality wood pellets – made from wood shavings, dry chips and sawdust by-products from our own sawmills – offer a reliable, renewable source of energy for residential, commercial or industrial heating. They are also a popular choice for horse bedding that’s comfortable, hygienic and hassle-free.
If you want to get a reliable source of heat, save money and help protect the environment, biomass wood pellets make a great choice. When the pellets burn, they release the same amount of carbon dioxide that the wood biomass absorbs during its growth, making them carbon-neutral.
From forest to front door, we are responsible for the entire production and supply chain. We integrate our wood pellet production directly after the sawing line, reducing any unnecessary transport.
A small and compact product that tackles some big challenges, our pellets are a true force of nature. About the height of a bottle cork, they are an energy-rich, low-ash, low-moisture and clean-burning heating source for wood pellet heaters and boilers in residential, commercial and large-scale industrial heating applications.
From sustainably managed forests and supply chains, we can give you a reliable supply of renewable raw material – and stable pricing. You can get just as much heat from two kilograms of Pellets by Stora Enso as from approximately one litre of oil.
Our premium wood pellets also make a natural and comfortable choice for equine bedding. They are highly absorbent, drastically cut mucking out time, reduce bedding consumption, and are easy to store and transport.
Pellets by Stora Enso are engineered for the highest quality performance. We ensure this by annually certifying our products to meet strict technical requirements. This guarantees transparency and the highest quality based on rigorous standards according to the industry’s leading international accreditation program ENplus®.
Certified at the highest level, called A1, Pellets by Stora Enso consistently meet or even exceed these standards in all of our mills*, to offer you the best possible heating experience.
