Clean Wood Energy 

The Sustainable Alternative Fuel Source for Commercial and Industrial Applications for Southland

Wood Energy South is a partnership project administered by Venture Southland in conjunction with the EECA, which aims to provide an authoritative source of current information and best practice to encourage the uptake of wood chips and pellets as a fuel for industrial and commercial boilers in Southland.

With a potential 300,000 tonnes of local waste wood available for wood-chip and wood-pellet fueled commercial boilers, the project also aims at developing a sustainable and viable locally sourced wood fuel supply chain.

CHANGING REGULATIONS RENEWS FOCUS ON CLEAN WOOD ENERGY
In 2016 Southland's regional air quality standards will change for the better of our environment.  Many commercial and industrial premises will be required to upgrade their heating plants away from coal to meet the new regulations.

Wood chip and pellets (waste wood) are an extremely cost effective, and clean burning alternative fuel source, that is sustainable and meets the new regulations, making it a viable option for both suppliers and end users.
