Wood pellet fuel - this is an alternative to traditional heating
Wood pellet is a modern, ecological and economical alternative to traditional fuels used for heating residential houses, companies and public buildings. Pellet may be produced out of various types of biomass: wood from energy crops, waste wood, bark, seeds, nut shells and straw. Wood pellets are the most effective fuel and this is the one which is produced by Pellet Energy. We use post-production remains coming from sawmills and carpentry workshops. Raw material i.e. sawdust is dried and compacted under pressure to form small granules.
Given the energetic properties of pellet fuel, it must be among the most efficient sources of energy. The calorific value of wood pellets is approx. 18,17 MJ/kg. The low content of moisture in wood pellet makes it more efficient fuel than wood.
The benefits of using pellets as a source of heat are as follows:
- Savings compared to other fuels - see the heating costs calculator (link)
- Comfort of use: purity of storage, use and transport
- high energy value (2 kg of pellets = 1 litre of fuel oil)
- convenient packaging - 15-kg bags or big-bag, tank
- you see what you purchase: get to know the exact weight of a given product, its moisture and ash content after combustion
- easy storage - just provide a dry room and put bags on pallets. (For very large investments it will be useful to use a silo for pellets)
- To heat a single-family house you need 5 to 8 tons of pellets for one heating season. This amount depends on an area, or rather volume, of your house, thermal insulation, boiler efficiency and weather conditions in winter
- safety in use, transportation and storage
- ecological origin and no environmental pollution in the production process
- low CO2 emission levels at combustion
