Our wood pellets are wholesale to the public
At EcoPellets Tasmania, we understand that raw materials and granulation processes must vary for different end uses in order to provide you with the highest quality product to meet your requirements. That’s what sets us apart, and it makes us Australia’s safest, highest quality pellet producer for your pellet stove wood pellets.
Our EcoPellets Tasmania Wood Pellets provide you with the best pellets for generating and retaining heat for the most efficient energy transfer to your wood pellet heaters. We have developed pellets with the right balance of thermal insulation properties and minimal ash production. They are specially developed for pellet heater/combustion and should not be used for any other application.
All wood has the same energy per kilogram on a dry basis
The raw material for wood pellets is sawdust, which is compressed to the same high density regardless of whether the sawdust comes from hardwood, softwood, or a mixture of the two. Therefore, there are no “hard” wood particles or “soft” wood particles, there are particles made from hardwood sawdust or particles made from softwood sawdust.
The fact remains that hardwoods in their natural state burn cleaner than softwoods for the following reasons: Pine trees have sap or bitumen seeping where the bark is scratched or branches are broken. This asphalt produces creosote when it burns, and it burns dirty. But to understand that bitumen is only present in the outer layer of the bark, the bark must be removed before wood chips are produced to make wood pellets.
