The sawmill annually consumes approximately 165,000 m3 of timber with 85% of the finished product exported. The pellet production system placed in service in 1995 has a capacity of about 45,000 metric tons per year. Pellets are sold in bulk for use in district heating plants and bagged for small-scale residential heating systems.
