Gillett Environmental have many years experience in waste wood recycling – Our in house team successfully extract all waste wood from mixed waste streams received – This waste wood is then processed into Biomass fuel which is used on site to power our facility.

This means your waste wood is turned into a 100% recoverable fuel and replaces the need for fossil fuels – This also mitigates transport to and from our site which helps reduce our environmental impact.

Our Biomass facility is one of the UK’s first WID compliant Biomass Boilers which holds a SWIP permit. There is no other plant in Lancashire the same!

What does this mean?

This means we are able to safely incinerate Grades A, B and C waste wood ( from pallets to kitchen worktops ).

Grades B and C waste wood would previously be sent to large powerplants for incineration however this could mean sending this material to another country which has a huge carbon footprint!

Our system has continuous emissions monitoring to ensure our fluegas is regulated and never exceeding legal limits.
