Environmentally friendly energy
Pellets constitute a 100% renewable natural resource and are sustainable source of energy.
Pellets constitute a solid biological fuel, being one of the most convenient and effective sources of renewable energy.
In the production process of pellets the woody biomass (sawdust, shavings and firewood) is first chipped, then dried and milled into dust, pressed and finally cooled.
This process results in the production of pellets with the diameter of 6 – 8 mm. Pellets do not contain any additives besides natural wood. Pellets due to uniform quality and dimensions can be conveniently used in automatic household heating solutions as well as in automated industrial systems.
Pellets are one of the most environmentally friendly sources of renewable energy.
Burning pellets release as much carbon dioxide as is absorbed from the atmosphere by the growth cycle of the trees that are used as raw material in the production process of pellets.
