SDL Solutions has started work for the installation of a high-capacity wood pellet production line and press at its facility in the Cotswolds in the UK.
Manufactured by Rudnick and Enners, the new line will mirror the SDL Pellets existing line, effectively doubling production capacity to enable production of over 60,000 tons of En Plus A1 wood pellets annually.
Construction of the pellet line and press is expected to be operational by July 2024.
The company has experienced consistent year-on-year growth since its inception in 2001, which it said has been attributed to its sustainable and innovative foundations.
It added that these principles have always been at the forefront of SDL’s operations, which have seen them install one of the UK’s first aerobic digesters and commissioning their own CHP biomass plant to produce their own renewable energy.
The organisation now manages the 360° life cycle of the tree from harvesting to replanting and offer full traceability and carbon tracking of all its projects.
The motivation behind commissioning the new wood pellet line and pellet press is to meet the increased demand for its wood pellets.
SDL Solutions has seen significant growth in demand from domestic customers as well as commercial customers, especially in the poultry industry for heating purposes in the chicken sheds.
"This investment positions SDL Solutions to meet the rising demand for wood pellets as an environmentally responsible heating choice," said Sam Launchbury, CEO of SDL Solutions. "By doubling our capacity, we reaffirm our dedication to offering our customers reliable and sustainable fuel options.
"We believe the most reliable and environmentally friendly wood pellets are produced within and supplied to the UK, from responsibly managed forests, reducing the demand for imported wood pellets.”
