Keeping It Green

During the recent investment, Oakwood researched the idea of using it’s waste timber as a bio-mass fuel source to heat the manufacturing unit. In the Spring of 2011 Oakwood purchased a wood fuelled boiler, waste timber chipper and storage silo. Oakwood have now achieved the fantastic goal of sending zero waste timber to landfill, removing the gas fuelled heating system and diverting approximately 210 tonnes of wood waste being disposed of in landfill per year.
