National Tree Week 2022

national tree weekThis year for National Tree Week – rather than just talk about the trees we harvest sustainably and how they help us achieve our own carbon emission targets, we wanted to throw some focus the way of a great project underway in Kenya.

As well as carbon reduction, this project has the additional benefits of providing food, income, shelter, and tools for communities in Kenya affected by climate change.

How do Balcas Energy wood pellets help the environment?

Our wood pellets at Balcas Energy are created to a high standard, bagged securely, and meet ENplus A1 certification standards which ensures your biomass appliance will not face any issues such as high carbon emissions which may be experienced with other wood pellets.

When choosing your wood pellets, it is important to know where they come from and how they are produced to ensure they are created sustainably and have a good impact on the environment.

When a tree falls to the ground and rots, it releases carbon dioxide. When we harvest a tree from a local forest, Balcas uses every part of it to create timber products and energy. Balcas ensures more trees are planted for each one we use. The products we manufacture from our timber such as those used in construction become long-term carbon sinks  – storing carbon for many years.

We use 100% renewable energy to create our wood pellets in our two local plants in Enniskillen and Invergordon.  Please watch our video to learn more about our commitment to sustainability.
