Services

STEIGER Energy and Environment Ltd offers a wide variety of high quality peat industry and environmental consulting and engineering services. The company serves customers in geological survey (peat), peat resources assessment, production planning, environmental impact assessment (EIA), the permitting process management, monitoring, after-use plans, various studies and analysis (eg. dust and noise measurements and dispersion modelling, environmental studies), life cycle analysis (LCA), peat production certification and provides laboratory services.

In addition, we have a cooperation agreement with Vapo Oy in projects outside the EU.

After-use of Peatlands:

Especially interesting for potential customers in areas such as Central and Eastern Europe, we can provide a solution for disposal of ash and a full after-use plan for abandoned or to-be-closed peatlands. Such areas are not only wastelands that should left to their own devices, but they can be converted to productive use such as forest, which would provide sustainable energy in the future. With our experience of this technique in Finland, we can reclaim vast areas which are deemed useless. This will also fulfill any legislative requirements imposed by the European Union or national governments.
