Clean Wood Energy 

The Sustainable Alternative Fuel Source for Southland

Scheduled changes to air regulations in 2016 means many commercial and industrial premises will be required to upgrade their heating plants to meet the new regulations <this should be a link to the regulations>. Coal and Lignite will no longer meet these regulations. Leaving, gas, electricity, diesel or wood as viable heat sources.

Venture Southland together with EECA have anaylsed the remaining heat source options and wish to provide stakeholders with information on how wood can be a clean burning, sustainable and cost effect solution for the Southland community.
