What are pellets?

Fuel pellets arerolls made from wood waste that is produced from sawdust, wood chips and other waste generated when wood is processed.

In some countries they are known as Wood Pellets or Holz-Pellets.

There are two types of pellets, or heating granules: those intended for household use (light) and pellets intended for industrial heating.

Pellets for household use are an environmentally cleaner fuel with a maximum ash content of 0.5 %. When the pellets are burned, they release exactly the same amount of CO2 (oxygen) into the atmosphere as that used by trees to grow.

Pellets – price of pellets

International sales of wooden pellets are increasing sharply and developing at breakneck speed.

The Kyoto Protocol was signed in 1997, which obliges all member countries to increase their margins of renewable and environmentally friendly sources of energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This is the reason for the rapid boom in the production of bio-fuels and wooden fuel pellets.

Pellets started to be used intensively in Western Europe after 1995.

Unfortunately, however, in recent years we have seen a sharp rise in the price of pellets.

The cost of producing and selling pellets depends primarily on:

  • the costs of producing and selling goods;
  • the countries in which pellets are produced and sold;
  • the market situation and market status of each country.

Advantages of wooden fuel pellets

Wooden pellets are truly an environmentally clean fuel for today and the future!

  • Compared with ordinary wood, wood chips or bark, pellets have up to three times more calorific value.
  • Fuel pellets are much cheaper than gas, electricity or diesel.
  • This is due to low water content, as the moisture content of pellets is on average around 8%. For comparison, the humidity of normal timber can be 30-50 %.
  • Density (i.e. hardness due to compression) is up to 1.5 times greater than that of wood.
  • Ash content significantly affects boiler performance, and so an important indicator of the quality of our pellets is their low ash content, with ash making up 0.49 %. In comparison with coal, the calorific value of pellets is virtually identical, although pellets 20 leave 20 times less ash and release 20-40 % less carbon dioxide. Ash is a mineral that is produced when wood burns.
  • Wooden pellets are odourless, non-sparking and do not shoot out embers.
  • They burn without smoke or soot and do not emit any harmful substances.
  • Our pellets generally come in 15kg packs, so are very easy to transport and take up little space when stored.
  • Pellets also have unique absorbent properties, and so are used, for example:
    1. in biological toilets as litter in litter boxes for cats and dogs;
    2. in biological toilets for animals;
    3. as bedding for horses, also serving as a biological toilet;
    4. as a quality fertilizer when growing mushrooms.

All of these advantages give pellets highly calorific value and make them pellets an ecologically-friendly product!
