The excess wood fiber and sawdust collected throughout Somerset’s hardwood flooring manufacturing process supplies our Wood Pellet Fuel division, where we produce premium grade clean-burning wood fuel pellets. Here, more than 50,000 tons of wood fiber and sawdust generated each year, instead of going to a landfill, goes to making an economical and environmentally-friendly alternative energy source. This, in turn, helps decrease our country's dependence on fossil fuels. Somerset brand pellets are sold across the U.S. through major pellet distributors and retailers for use in pellet stoves.

We work hard do the right thing, because it's the right thing to do. This applies not only to how we treat our environment, but to everything we do at Somerset.
