Central Wood Recyclers – from logging waste to biomass fuel

Central Wood Recyclers is a New Zealand-owned land-clearing company that recycles waste biomass from logging – waste that is usually left to rot or taken to landfill.

Central Wood Recyclers has found value for the waste as a renewable energy source by creating biomass fuel, an alternative to fossil fuels.

In operations since 2003, Central Wood Recyclers processes and converts recycled wood into biomass fuel, providing manufacturers with an alternative fuel source to conventional methods.

Looking forward, the company hopes awareness of its initiative will grow, allowing it to forge new relationships. By increasing its business, Central Wood Recyclers can improve the lands left behind by logging, create more renewable energy and reduce the reliance of fossil fuels.

Central Wood Recyclers is a finalist in the 2015 NZI Sustainable Business Network Awards in the Renewables Impact category.
