Bord na Móna
Bord na Móna is a semi-state company created by the Turf Development Act 1946. The company began developing the peat-lands of Ireland with the aim of providing economic benefit for Irish Midland communities and achieving security of energy supply for the recently formed Irish Republic.
Over the years, Bord na Móna has expanded and diversified its portfolio of businesses to include biomass procurement and supply, power generation (peat-based and renewable), waste recovery, domestic fuel products and professional and consumer horticulture products. In 2015, the company announced that the harvesting of peat for power generation will be "phased out" by 2030, at which point the company will complete its transition to new sustainable businesses located across its bogs and landholding.
