Peat Department "Usvizh-Buk" (Peat production and transportation Department "Usvizh-Buk" of "Belorusskaya SDPP", Vitebsk region, Tolochin district, settlement Usvizh-Buk )

History of the development of Usvizh-Buk has begun since 1963 with the production of peat briquettes and peat extraction for composting for agriculture. In the 90s gasification of the republican regions was carried out, that led to a decrease in fuel briquet consumption.

Fuel peat market diversification has started since 2008. This fact has been accompanied by increase in boiler houses and CHPPs within the housing and utility sectors and the Ministry of Energy, where  milled fuel peat has become the main fuel.

Providing depreciation of the boiler and process equipment, structural units of peat briquette manufacture "Usvizh-Buk", in 2011 RUE "Vitebskenergo" conducted a re-profiling of "Usvizh-Buk" from peat briquette manufacture to the Peat production and transportation Department.

At this moment, the staff of Peat Department "Usvizh-Buk" numbers 62 people, 336 hectares area of the peat land "Usvizh-Buk" is in operation.
