Our production site at Girvan

UK Pellet Production Facility

The cornerstone of Land Energy’s supply chain is our wood pellet production plant situated on the South West coast of Scotland in the South Ayrshire town of Girvan. The plant was developed and built by Land Energy and is and located within the Galloway and Southern Ayrshire UNESCO Biosphere, the largest forested area in the UK – that’s why we are here.

The UNESCO Biosphere has been recognised internationally as a world-class environment for people and nature and aims to value and protect the biological and cultural diversity of the region while promoting environmentally sustainable development. Land Energy is proud to be supporters of the Biosphere and its aims.

Running alongside Land Energy’s renewable energy beliefs is an equally strong conviction in quality, which is embedded in Land Energy and its brands Woodlets®, Sorbeo® horse bedding, Kittilitt® cat litter and Roastie-Toasties® wood briquettes.

All the pellets that are produced on site meet, or exceed, the ENplus A1 quality standard and to ensure this our production runs are sampled every 60 minutes.

We undertake regular laboratory burn tests to ensure a minimum calorific value of 17.3 GJ/tonne and our pellets have an exceptionally low ash content (typically < 0.2%), which translates into low boiler maintenance and fuelling costs.

Our attention to detail by our production team has earned Land Energy its reputation as a premium pellet producer.

The factory covers 10 acres, producing 100,000 tonnes of pellets per annum and timber storage facilities with quay-side access for deliveries by ship.

Land Energy has installed a state-of-the-art biomass combined heat and power (CHP) system that provides 100% of the pellet plant’s energy requirements, meaning we have zero fossil fuel inputs, resulting in wood pellets with an ultra low net carbon output.

All of our timber comes from sustainable, and responsibly-managed forest sources which adhere to UK standards and comes from the local area around the plant.

The average distance our feedstock to reach the plant is 56km, a fraction of the distance travelled by conventional coal or oil energy resources. We are on the Biomass Supplier List and comfortably surpass their requirements, ensuring that you will meet all your RHI obligations.

Our manufacturing facility uses a combined heat and power (CHP) unit that runs on mixed sources of woodchip and generates power for the entire site. In this way, we are completely self-sufficient for all our heat and power requirements, making our pellets the most sustainable product possible.

Please contact us if you would like to discuss our experience of using a biomass CHP within our manufacturing process.


We take the sustainability of our wood pellets very seriously and question every step of our manufacturing process.


Our confidence in Land Energy Pellets enables us to guarantee a minimum of 4,800 KWh of heat per tonne.
