The process

In 2016, the company became part of the Belgian VPK Group. This allowed for a much-needed switch to pellets. The possibility of replacing oil with fossil-free alternatives had long been under consideration. Furthermore, it was possible to obtain funding for the investment through the Swedish Klimatklivet scheme. The plant became operational in 2019 and has since proven to have a positive impact on several levels. Fewer production stoppages, significant energy savings, and even more environmentally sound production and heating of premises, factory, and rollers. A ready-made solution on delivery made installation smooth and trouble-free.

We have nothing but positive points to make about our fossil-free switch. We probably should have made the transition earlier.
