Heating Fuel Made From Renewable Wood Pellets

Cindy By Cindy 2022-12-05

Wood pellets are a high quality fuel. They are small cylindrical particles made from recycled wood waste, such as shavings and sawdust. They are chopped, hammered and compressed under high pressure, with the wood’s natural glue (lignin) acting as a binder to hold the particles together.

The particles are very dense and have a low moisture content (less than 10%), which allows them to burn with very high combustion efficiency. One ton of pellets is equivalent to about 4-5 tons of firewood, making it easy to handle and store.

Benefits of Wood Pellets

  • Good for the environment because they are made from recycled biomass.

  • Don’t chop wood.

  • Minimum to smoke-free.
  • Low ash.
  • An asthma-friendly alternative to wood heating.
