We help you with long-term and flexible deliveries of biofuels

SCA is one of Europe’s largest producers of forest-based bio­energy, with a total production of about 11,9 TWh per year. In Sweden, we have three pellets factories that have an annual production capacity of 300,000 tonnes.

Our wide range of fuels enables the delivery of woodfuel mixtures based on your requirements, for example with a specific moisture content and fraction distribution. Deliveries can include both biofuels from the forest, such as brash, stemwood chips and peat as well as biofuels from industry in the form of bark, sawdust, pellets and briquettes.

The advantages of deliveries of biofuel from SCA:

  • Large and broad raw materials base provides an opportunity for a flexible fuel mix
  • Own production and logistics ensures long-term and reliable deliveries
  • Control of the entire chain, from raw material to customer
  • Extensive experience of biofuels and pellets production
  • We offer FSC®-certified products

Forest-based biofuel

Forest harvesting produces raw materials for the pulp, paper and sawmill industry. The raw material that is not suitable for the industry is used to produce biofuels for our own industries and for external customers, such as heat and power plants.

Felling residue

Brash (Branches and crowns). The extraction of brash from the forest is primarily conducted after harvesting in spruce-dominated forest on healthy forest land. Harvesting is preceded by brash-adapted felling, whereby we place branches and crowns in piles by the side of the harvester's route as the trees are felled. We deliver brash to our customers, either in the form of forest chips or as bulk brash (unchipped).


Fuel wood and stemwood chips

Fuel wood comprises trees and parts of trees that are not suitable for the pulp and sawmill industry's processes. This could be trees with root rot or other defects. Fuel wood is delivered to our customers as roundwood or chipped (stem chips).


Peat assets in our peat bogs are constantly expanding and have stored carbon dioxide for many years. From an environmental perspective, it is positive that the energy from our drained bogs is utilized, as these emit large amounts of carbon dioxide. Energy peat is harvested in the summer, either as milled peat or as peat in blocks. Incinerating peat and wood fuel together increases the output and operating efficiency of boilers. The addition of peat also results in stable incineration, a reduction in emissions and entails lower risk of disruption. And enables the replacement of fossil energy sources.

Recycled biofuel

Recycled wood chips. Recycled wood chips are made by crushing or chipping old packaging, formwork or recycled building material, and waste from renovation or rebuilding work.

Biofuel from industry

Wood raw materials that cannot be used in the industries becomes biofuel. By-products from sawmills, such as bark, sawdust and dry chips, becomes fuel and the cellulose chips are used as raw material to industry.

By-products from sawmills:

  • Sawdust
  • Wood shavings
  • Bark
  • Dry chips
  • Briquettes
  • Pellets

We help companies and industries convert to biofuel

By transferring from fossil fuel to renewable bioenergy, in many cases you can save 65-70% of your current fuel costs. As fuel costs are so much lower with bioenergy, the investment is financed through the operating budget and this saves money from the outset.
