Our Wood pellets are manufactured from timber waste products produced through industrial processes. Material in the form of saw dust, wood shavings, timber offcuts etc are the ingredients of the finished pellet. In the past a lot of timber waste has been landfilled or burnt contributing to environmental damage.
Wood was used to produce heat long before fossil fuels became readily available. Its popularity is returning for several reasons:
Wood Pellets are produced from compressing coarse saw dust through holes in a metal ring dye. A quantity of dust will reduce to between a half and a quarter of its original volume during the process. Friction generated during manufacture creates heat that in turn releases the natural lignins within the dust to act as a glue. Our press produces 6mm diameter pellets that are cooled and screened to remove excess dust prior to packaging.
One tonne of wood pellets can replace 400 litres of oil; saving 1072 kg of CO2 from being released into the atmosphere
