Vida is one of Sweden’s largest biofuel companies. We make the most of all by-products that result from felling and the processing at our sawmills, and convert them into renewable energy. That means that every single wood chip from the forest gets used.
The forest by-products consist of forest residues and other leftover wood that is chipped and sold to thermal power stations. Bark, sawdust and chips are leftovers from the sawmills. The bark is sold to thermal power stations and sawdust is sold to thermal power stations and the pellets industry. From the planing plants we get wood shavings that are sent to Vida’s factory in Hok, where it becomes top-quality stable bedding and energy-efficient fuel pellets. Vida’s nine modern sawmills produce their own renewable energy for heating, drying and hot water. Biofuel that is not needed for our own operations is sent on to thermal power stations and the pellets industry.
