Our five-year vision
We intend to submit planning applications to East Ayrshire Council in the coming months to allow us to deliver a biomass boiler, a lamination line, and a minor application for an extension to the rear of the plant.
Plans include the installation of a new biomass facility and lamination line to support the plants continued growth, and the local economy through employment opportunities. The changes will further improve the efficiency of the site's closed loop production cycle and reduce energy costs, contributing towards the ultimate goal of achieving net zero production.
Our proposal is for the installation of a biomass plant to produce electricity and to generate hot gas, which dries the wood material required for chipboard production. By adding a biomass facility, we can utilise the waste wood within the plant. We implement these processes at our site in Hexham.
