Block peat is extracted mechanically by cutting peat blocks out of the bog. Our company uses two methods for block peat extraction. We extract the largest part of the block peat by cutting it out from the bog with specifically equipped excavators. The dimensions of the blocks are then15х25х45 cm. We also extract the block peat by using a special machine called «steba ». With this method the dimensions of the blocks are 15x16x40 cm. Block peat is transported unpacked.
