SDL Sawmill Purchase

Our latest diversification was the acquisition of a sawmill to enable us to produce finished sawn wood products. 

This completes our 360° biomass supply loop, from the felling of biomass material, through to processing in our sawmills, supplying our biomass boilers with any waste product and being used to power our wood pellet production line. 

The sawmill allows us to use the full tree and remove any wastage from the harvesting and processing procedures, supporting our sustainable business practices.
