Pellet Biomass Fuel

Eco-friendly and CO² neutral

Pellets are made through compression of wood shavings in their natural state. An enormous amount of wood waste materials are produced every day in regular wood-processing industries. During combustion, pellets produce the same amount of CO², as they have required during the natural growing as wood. Compared to oil or gas - a balanced result.

Major advantages when using pellets:

  • Crisis-resistant: Local fuel
  • Short Transport Routes
  • Simple Filling of Storage: Either by Pellet-Bags or Pellet fuel truck
  • Dust-Free and odourless Refilling
  • Low Space-Requirements for Storage
  • Efficient and Eco-friendly Pellet Boiler

Pellets are the best form of heating, compared to fossil fuel or Electricity/Heat Pumps.

Quality Standards

Pellets are standardised according to ÖNORM M 7135 or EN 14961.

Specification ÖNorm M7135 EN 14961 - Class 1
Heating Value > 18 MJ/kg = 5 kWh/kg 16,5 < 0 < 19 MJ/kg = 5 kWh/kg
Weight 650 kg/m³ > 600 kg / m³
Diameter 6 mm < 6 + - 1,0 mm
Length 5 - 40 mm 3,15 < L < 40 mm (99 %), L < 45 mm (1 %)
Water Content w < 10 % w < 10 %
Dust Content < 1 % < 1 %
Ash Content < 0,5 % < 0,7 %
Energydemand for production: Approx. 2,7% of energy-content

Most important quality-criteria:

  • Lowest Possible dust-content
  • Hard & Shiny surface of the pellets
  • Natural Wood, No Additives

Attention:

Please consider the quality, when purchasing or receiving pellets. (proven according to ÖNORM M7135)
