All the kilns
for drying the hardwoods are heated with steam. This steam
comes from a steam plant located
on the same grounds as the kilns. The steam plant's boilers are 100% fueled by the sawdust waste from the
manufacturing plants. The electric power for all the plants comes from this same steam boiler.
Our suppliers internally generate
a high percentage of their energy by using highly oxygenated
fuel (wood waste),
thereby, reducing their carbon footprint by more than 50% when compared to fossil fuels.
All heat and electric from the saw dust... now that is green.
