Pure energy

Burning wood chips is a CO2 neutral energy source and therefore an eco-friendly choice. The amount of carbon dioxide emitted during the combustion of the chips is similar to the amount of CO2 emitted if the tree was to let die and rot.

Wood chip district heating

The wood chip district heating is the first of its kind in Iceland. In Scandinavia and other parts of Europe, though, where firewood is available nearby, this kind of house heating has become very common.

Skogarorka ehf. (Woodenergy ltd.)

Skogarorka ltd. runs the woodchip district heating in Hallormsstadur, eastern Iceland. The woodchip boiler uses timber from the surrounding forests to provide heat and hot water in a self-sufficient and eco-friendly way. Considering the growing forest area in Iceland this form of energy consumption is a real alternative in cold areas, i.e. areas without geothermics.
