BADGER Pellets are produced on totally integrated bio-sites in Virton (Recybois) and Thimister (Woodenergy) in Belgium and in Bissen. We are committed to producing 100% natural wood fuel pellets (BADGER Pellets), of high certified quality, consistently and making sure to use environmentally-friendly techniques. This quality is guaranteed by our DIN plus and ENplus A1 certifications. We control it internally via our laboratories, in production and via external audits (approved laboratories…).

Our 3 bio-sites, fully integrated, are located in the Walloon region in Belgium (Recybois in Virton and Woodenergy in Thimister) and Luxembourg (Kiowatt in Bissen).
Our intention is to develop our wood resource locally and in an integrated manner! It is within this context that we subscribe to the LOCAL WOOD label that guarantees that our wood supply is realised in local forests!
Our pellets are made from wood from our sustainably managed forests. We are PEFC certified.
The wood that we use is derived from thinning necessary for the management of our forests.
Their first use, when sawn, is to supply our bio-cutting unit for the production of planks, rafters and pallets (material wood usage).
These are products related to sawing, once considered waste, which are now creating energy to keep you warm, as well as our municipalities, communities and industries! This local and renewable fuel will replace imported fossil fuels such as oil and gas.
The energy (in the form of heat and electricity) we use to produce our BADGER Pellets is a self-generated green energy from our co-generation and trigeneration (powered by wood at end of life).
The integration of our activities (integrated bio-sites) and the use of local wood allows us to also greatly reduce transport and limit greenhouse gas emissions as far as possible.
We have commissioned the company CO2LOGIC to calculate our CO2 balance (see below). This study highlights the exemplary CO2 emission results, of course compared to fossil fuels, but also compared with the pellets of our competition. Thanks to our circular economy model, we are the only co2reducer pellets!
A highly efficient distribution network has been set up to deliver our fuel to you under the best conditions (quality compliance to the final consumer), in bags and in bulk, in summer and winter.
The network of BADGER Pellets distribution partners has a unique fleet of trucks, specifically adapted for BADGER Pellets (low pressure blown air), with an on-board weighing system and all approved by metrology. Click here to learn more about our bulk delivery service.
Demand for pellets is seasonal and greatly increases with the approach of winter. This is why BADGER Pellets planned for huge storage facilities (more than 30,000 tonnes). No chance of running out of fuel, even when demand is very strong. Because it is when it’s cold that you need it!
With regard to our bags, we have chosen, in connection with our philosophy, to provide you with high quality paper bags, recycled and recyclable. With BADGER Pellets, there is no storage of plastic bags, you can recycle your bags in the same way as your paper and cardboard!
