Enviva combines earths oldest renewable energy source with 21st Century technology to make wood pellets a sustainable, cost-efficient and essential complement to wind and solar power. According to experts, generating electricity with wood pellets instead of coal reduces greenhouse gas emissions by about 80 percent. And wood pellets can provide uninterrupted power at any time, at large scale and at comparatively low cost.
Enviva was founded in 2004 with a clear purpose in mind: We wanted to develop a cleaner energy alternative to fossil fuels. Today, we are the worlds largest wood pellet producer, with the capacity to make more than 2 million tons in 2016. We manufacture pellets at six facilities in the American South and supply them to electric utilities in the United Kingdom and Europe.
Enviva is bringing badly needed economic growth to rural communities across the South, creating hundreds of new jobs and pumping hundreds of millions of dollars into the Southern economy. We produce wood pellets with sustainable practices that protect Southern forests. And wood pellets reliably produce electricity at power plants across Europe, regardless of whether the wind is blowing or the sun is shining.
At Enviva, our job is more than making pellets. We work for lower emissions, healthy forests and strong communities.
