Wood Pellet Heat Reduces Carbon Emmissions By More Than Half.


Analysis shows wood pellet fuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by more than half over fossil fuels.

The Northern Forest Center commissioned a study of the greenhouse gas impacts of heating buildings with state-of-the-art wood pellet boilers. The Spatial Informatics Group-Natural Assets Laboratory (SIG-NAL) used data specific to the region’s forest composition and harvest practices, and the pellet sourcing and manufacturing of 9 out of 10 Northern Forest pellet mills, all of which produce pellets exclusively for thermal (heat) generation.
