Peat is one of our domestic biofuels, which benefit the employment situation and energy management security. Peat is a true national energy treasure.
The Finnish peat soils have 58 000 TWh energy, which is more than the energy content of the oil in the bottom of the North Sea. The share of peat energy in Finland is approximately 6–7 %.
Peat is collected from bogs mechanically. Depending on the manner of production, the end product is either sod peat or milled peat.
The uses for different types of peat are numerous, from heating detached houses to power plant use. Sod peat has more utilisation options than milled peat.
