Who we are?
NaturalReason, Lda. was established in 2012 and since the beginning it's core business was focused on development and production of biofuels. The energy dependence that the Azores Region have regarding fossil fuels is large. This was one of the main motivations for us to study the possibility to locally produce biofuels. After analyzing several alternatives, the company decided to produce wood pellets, due to the local abundance of biomass.
