Pellets belong to the category of renewable energy sources such as solar (photovoltaic) and wind energy (wind turbines).
Pellets are used for the production of logging, woodworking or agricultural products without the addition of chemicals.
Their combustion has a zero carbon dioxide (CO2) balance.
It does not contribute to the greenhouse effect as the amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) released during biomass combustion are re-bound by plants to generate new biomass.
The pellet is a fuel made of wood, compressed into small cylinders, 6mm-8mm in diameter and 10mm-40mm long, free of any moisture, without any adhesive added.
The pellet is a new fuel that responds to the demand for cheap and clean energy. The pellets heating solution enables us to save 40% – 50% on oil or gas heating in our home or workplace.
At the national level, the production of fuel from domestic raw materials means a proportional reduction in fuel imports. At a private level, using pellets in place of conventional fuels (oil, gas, electricity) means an economy that can reach 50% of total heating costs.
Even if the boiler and burner used are replaced, the savings are such that the investment is depreciated over less than three periods of use.
