Biomass

Peat is a finite resource and we have committed not to develop and new peat production bogs. Bord na Móna Feedstock is now focused on reducing our dependency on peat and developing a more sustainable future, based on supplying renewable biomass to our customers.

Since 2008 we have been supplying biomass to Edenderry Power Station, which has already achieved 10% dilution of peat with biomass, and is on course to deliver on the Government target of 30% dilution with biomass by 2015.
