Increased supply of wood pellets gives large heat users confidence

The announcement that Nature’s Flame has increased its capacity to produce and supply wood pellets to industry for heating will give large industrial heat users greater confidence to replace coal with biomass fuel said the Bioenergy Association.

Brian Cox, Executive Officer of the Bioenergy Association said that “Fonterra’s announcement that it is converting the Te Awamtu milk processing plant to use wood pellets from Nature’s Flame rather than fossil fuels to produce its heat, and the government’s announcement for use of biomass fuel in eight schools and two hospitals, reinforces the confidence that government and industry is having with regard to long term supply of biomass fuel.”
