Origins of the Wood Pellet



History of the manufacture of wood pellets begin from the energy crisis of oil in the 1970s. Wood pellet making technology itself is adopted from animal feed/fish pellet technology  that had already been appliedAlong with the development of various technological modernization in line with the characteristics of raw materials, product specifications or market demands according to international standards, production efficiency and capacity of the plant to meet market needs. Efforts to create alternative energy from renewable sources  with several quality improvements of raw material into the solution at that time. After the oil crisis of the 1970s ended the production of wood pellets decreased. But when the problem of global warming, climate change and efforts to increase the added value of woody biomass and the rapid depletion of fossil fuels began in the 1990s finally wood pellets again received great attention.


Woody biomass in particular is said to be a source of alternative energy that can be renewed only if the production is done in a sustainable manner. Forest plantations or energy crops is an attempt to sustainable production of biomass sources in addition to the utilization of wood wastes from various industrial timber that must also be traced if from legal sources. Sawdust in particular is the best raw material for the production of wood pellets, but because of its availability is usually not a big plus if collected from a number of sawmill waste for example, and so much demand that should be observed when actually be used for the production of wood pellets

The wood logs are part of a plant or tree are best to produce pellets. If the premium quality woodpellets (pellets Class A1) produced,  the debarking process must also be done to minimize its ash content. While part of trees or other plants that have a higher ash content so it can not be used for the production of premium quality wood pellets. Wood pellets have the best quality lowest ash content and high calorific value and are generally only used for the home heating in some European countries, the U.S. and Canada. While wood pellets with a lower quality than that its use in industry

In contrast to European countries and the U.S. are generally using wood pellets for domestic consumption as heating, in Asia generally digunakansebagai wood pellet fuel or power generation industries. The differences in consumption patterns due to climatic conditions, among others, as a result of its geographical location and the awareness of the environmental impactVarious advantages of wood pellets for industrial and domestic applications and a wide range of driving factors on environmental issues, climate change, global warming and the economy makes it increasingly massive demand for the commodity

10 Advantages By Making Energy Plantations for Wood Pellet Production

Assuredness of supply of raw materials is one of the key factors of business success in the wood pellets. There are two ways to obtain raw materials commonly done today: a. Buying from the owner of source of raw materials. b. Producing its own the availability of raw materials. While the 3rd way and there is still few for business owners make wood pellets is by mix way, which is partly provide by their own of raw materials and some rest buy from the other source of raw materials.
While examining at the types of biomass raw materials there are two kinds, namely : a. Woody biomass b. Non-wood biomass such as agricultural wastes (empty fruit bunches of palm oil trees, corn cobs, rice husks and so on). Currently woody biomass remains a priority to be products of wood pellets as a number of advantages over non-wood biomass which is generally an agricultural wastes, are included in the category of biomass pellets or agri-waste pellets. The comparison between wood pellet and biomass pellet …

Scrambling Biomass Waste Empty Fruit Bunch of Palm Oil: For Paper or Pellets?

In an effort to optimize the full potential of a number of oil companies are planning to process their wastes that resulting from the CPO production process. One of them is empty fruit bunches (EFB).  Two alternatives are being hotly debated is made pellets for energy and for the paper. Viewed from the business side, if it is profitable so is certainly not a problem for the production of both products. Availability of raw materials into one of the important factors in terms of production and business in general.
Further analysis can be done by looking in more detail in the production process technology, the amount of investment, ROI, environmental aspects, sustainability of core business (palm oil) and benefits of the products produced are a number of factors that will make it easier to eventually choose one. Further know more detail about the characteristics of each business such products will also further increase the stability of both products. In the end, the higher score determi…

Wood Briquette Left Behind 25 Years of Wood Pellet

Common areas with wood burning application it will be appropriate to use wood briquette and less suitable when using wood pellets. Various areas in various parts of the world use wood for heating (wood burning stove or boiler) or for cooking. If the ratio of wood as fuel is much so the business of  wood briquette production will be more attractive than wood pellets. Globally wood briquette are less popular than wood pellets, so the wood briquette production is also far below the wood pellets. Wood briquette also has its own characteristics compared to wood pellets.




In general, wood briquette production is also much easier than wood pellets. The particle size, raw materials, moisture content and operations slightly more stringent than the requirements for the production of wood pellets. All wood pellets have a cylindrical shape which is only distinguished diameter of the cylinder, and a commonly used the diameter of 6 mm and 8 mm, while the wood briquette in addition to its shape can …
