What is a pellet?
Pellet fuel is a renewable, neat and affordable alternative to home warming currently in use across North America. It is a biomass stock made from renewable substances, usually recycled wood scrap. In the United States, there are approximately 1,000,000 homes that use wood pellets for heating, in freestanding ovens, fireplace enclosures, stoves and boilers. Pellet fuel for heating also gets discovered in large environments such as schools and prisons.
How are pellets produced?
Compared to other biomass improvement technologies, granulation is a reasonably efficient, manageable and inexpensive process. The four key stages of this process are:
- Pre-grinding of the raw material
- Drying of the raw material
- Grinding of the raw material
- Densification of the commodity
These steps allow the production of a uniform fuel with low moisture and high power density. In case dry raw elements are available, only grinding and densification is required.
Using pellets for industrial boiler fuel
Wooden pallets are widely used for manufacturing boilers as a replacement for natural gasoline and coal, making them environmentally friendly. Traditional fuels are expensive and pollute, while wood pellets do not hold a large amount of nitrogen or sulfur plus are carbon neutral.
For thermal energy production and gasification
Wood pellets also get used as fuel in thermal energy production and gasification. It contains a high calorific value and an extremely low emission of contaminants. Many countries have policies in place to promote energy production from biomass.
Potash for the garden
After using the wood pellets, the ash can be reused from the biomass pot and reused as potassium for the garden. The scraps from the wood pellets are an excellent source of potassium and lime in union with ‘other trace components to support your clay. But keep in mind that they are alkaline, and you need to check the PH balance of the soil to get the appropriate stability for the plants you want to develop.
There are several places where you can get pelleti müük. They are convenient to store, transport and utilize.
