Peat developing for further proceeding into substrates.

Latvian company  works  in central West part of Latvia. With every year  the area and volume of extraction has expanded as the company invests a lot in development.  Block peat, milled peat and different other raw materials from peat is  packed in Big Bales and offering to our clients. This year the plan is to gather around 100 000 m3 of milled peat and 100 000 m3 of block peat. That sell both EXW at peat bogs and DDU to any place of interest.

Mire, peatland, swamp, marsh

The bog is a continental or permanent part of the earth’s surface periodic humidity, specific vegetation and accumulation of peat. In accordance with
geological point of view, the classification of marshes can safely be called the marshes only if it is at least 30 centimeters thick in the unsweetened position
peat layer.

Peat extraction field

The area of the turf, where the extraction took place, or the area that was prepared has been drained and where peat humidity is from 90-96% (naturally wetpeat) reduced to 40-60%. Peat extracted area (harvested overhang and landing, ditch grid, road infrastructure built) the area where peat extraction takes place, as well as the area where peat extraction takes place interrupted or completed regardless of the original land use(forest, agricultural land or wetland)

Bog pools

Mud Akats / Lakes- small water bodies with tight coastlines, places with difficulty in the runoff, terrain fracture sites or areas where the different direction filtration streams. The peat sapropel or sludge accumulates on it.

Degraded raised bogs still capable of natural regeneration

High bogs or peatlands that have changed the natural hydrological regime or partly used for the extraction of peat, but which can restore hydrological regimes and the formation of peat is expected within 30 years.

The extraction of peat is highly dependent on weather conditions, so our forecasts for peat volumes are only prognostic. There have been very bad years where the yields have dropped significantly, even by 30-40%. In such seasons there was already a shortage of peat in December, January . Many customers were denied deliveries, but more so for occasional orders.
