The addition of pellets and the trademark celsico® to its product portfolio will allow Mabanaft Deutschland to supply its customers with heating oil and pellets via the same channels. Thereby, enhanced tailor-made service can be granted to energy retail partners.

Mabanaft Deutschland has successfully developed and expanded its networks for the last decades and can capitalise on these structures to increase its bio-energy activities respectively its activities with steady growth in pellet trading.

Wood pellets are high-quality bio-fuels distributed to a major extent as a premium product under the international trademark celsico®. The products are manufactured by selected suppliers and meet the highest European quality norms and standards in the premium sector.
