110 thsd tonnes

of fuel pellets per year

The production of biofuels from sawmill by-products is one of the important areas of Segezha Group's environmental policy. At the end of 2018, Lesosibirsk WP No 1 launched a plant for the production of wood pellets made from sawdust without any chemicals. Heat transfer of this modern type of fuel 1.5x higher than that of ordinary firewood. The heating value of pellets is almost equal to that of coal. The launch of the pellet production line will enable the Group to optimise the utilisation of wood by transforming the by-products of timber sawing into fuel pellets and heat power. Today, the entire volume of pellets is supplied to industrial consumers and to large power plants in Europe. In the future, it is planned to double the capacity of pellet production in order to provide Russian consumers and customers in the EU with biofuels, including for heating public buildings and individual houses. 

In 2020, Segezha Group inaugurated the second fuel pellet facility at the Lesosibirsk Woodworking Plant No 1, which increased the Group’s aggregate pellet production capacity to 110,500 t p.a.
