Top-quality pellet production
Base-load renewable electricity
In early 2020, the Cycleenergy Group acquired the Erndtebrück plant in the district of Siegen-Wittgenstein in Germany as well as the employees from German utility Innogy SE, which had taken the strategic decision to exit from this business segment. The production site comprises one biomass CHP plant with a turbine capacity of 5 MWel and a wood pellet plant with an annual production capacity of 120,000 tonnes of ENplus A1-certified premium wood pellets.
NRW Pellets – Our brand stands for a team that is dedicated and committed to best quality and customer satisfaction.
The pellet plant built in Erndtebrück in 2010 counts with a production capacity of up to 120,000 tonnes of ENplus A1 premium wood pellets in Siegen-Wittgenstein, one of Germany’s most heavily forested regions.

Our data protection:
This standard is characterized by minimal abrasion, very low ash content, high solidity, consistent size structure and a very high degree of wood purity.
Through flexible use of raw materials, in this case sawmill residues and wood logs, Cycleenergy´s Erndtebrück plant is also be responsive to the needs of sustainable forest management in the region.
The quality standard PEFC confirms compliance with the strict requirements of sustainable forest management.
Long-standing partnerships with more than a dozen pellet dealers ensure that customers are reliably supplied with bulk or bagged products.
With the own brand “NRW Pellets”, Cycleenergy is visible in the materket as a reliable producer of top-quality premium wood pellets living up to its regional responsbility.
The adjacent biomass CHP plant makes it possible for the pellet plant to carry out production on a largely climate-neutral basis and thus continue pursuing its responsibility suppporting the transition of the energy industry.
The biomass CHP plant
The biomass CHP plant was commissioned in 2009 and feeds around 40,000 MWh of base-load renewable electricity per year into the grid. Every year, the plant consumes approx. 45,000 tonnes of landscape conservation wood sourced from the region.
The combined heat and power technology also enables optimal valorization of the produced heat for drying raw material required for pellet production. The CO2 savings mount up to approx. 48,000 tonnes per year.
