Orchard & Vineyard Recycling
With the use of specialised attachments mounted on excavators, three-wheel loggers and other equipment, Africa Biomass Company is able to remove old orchards, vineyards, and windbreaks from root to top. This unwanted wood is then fed into horizontal grinders and recycled into valuable wood chips.
Mulch Spreading in Vineyards & Orchards
Mulch created from recycled orchards, vineyards or windbreaks is applied to new or existing plantations. Wood chips can either be mixed with compost or be used on its own. ABC's patented designed mulch spreader is used to ensure that mulch is spread evenly and efficiently in plantations.
Biomass for Heat or Electricity Generation
Africa Biomass Company is one of the largest wood chip producers in the world and the most experienced in Africa. Dimensional wood chips are produced from alien invasive trees in South Africa and this biomass is used in Agri-industrial applications as a greener alternative to coal to produce either heat or electricity.
Site Clearing & Preparation
In partnership with Môreson Grondverskuiwers, an earthmoving company, Africa Biomass Company has become experts at land clearing and preparation. An extensive range of highly specialised wood chippers and earthmoving equipment enables ABC to do any job quickly and efficiently.
River Rehabilitation in Riparian Zone
In the past few years Africa Biomass Company has played a big role in the removal of alien invasive trees in the riparian zones. By harvesting these unwanted alien trees, water levels in river systems rise, the risks of bush fires are reduced and the original fynbos and palmiet systems are returning to its natural state.
Wood Chipper Parts & Spares
Africa Biomass Company is the sole authorised agent for Bandit Industries, Inc (US) in Africa. The use of Bandit equipment has led to the accumulation of a large range of parts. Africa Biomass Company stocks a variety of wood chipper parts for all major wood chipper brands in Africa.
