Fuel pellets are one of the modern solid fuel types actively used in special pellet boilers for heating residential, commercial, and industrial buildings. They perfectly retain heat and are notable for high efficiency.
Fuel pellets from straw are distinguished by high dryness (humidity of only 8-10% against 30-50% for logs) and higher (approximately 1.5 times) – density than wood. These qualities provide high calorific value: burning 1 ton of fuel pellets is enough to get 3500 kWh of thermal energy.
Fuel pellets are environmentally friendly fuels. The granules are made from the straw of different plants. They are 100% plant-based as they include lignin, a natural polymer that almost any plant contains. Lignin is plasticizing during granulation under high operating temperatures.
