Wood pellets made in France
Because Aqua believes in the future of wood fuel, it invested in Valboval, a wood pellet manufacturing company. Valboval’s wood pellets are 100% natural and made in the Hauts-de-France region, in Northern France. The company was founded in 2009 and its wood pellet plant is located in Artres, 10km South of Valenciennes.
Mindful of the high environmental standards it holds itself to, Valboval sources its wood chips from public park tree trimmings and sawmill waste. The result is a Din+ certified quality product line which covers all needs from domestic heating to industrial grade boilers.
When most of the regional use of wood pellets is sourced from elsewhere, Valboval offers a locally produced environmentally friendly fuel with a low carbon footprint.
