As the cost of heating with natural gas and fuel oils continues to rise and there is increased pressure to find an alternative energy solution to fossil fuels, homes and businesses are being pushed towards the use of wood pellet stoves as a means of generating heat.
A large number of models of pellet stoves, central heating furnaces and other heating appliances have been developed and marketed since about 1999. With the surge in the price of fossil fuels in 2005, the demand for wood pellet stoves and multi fuel stoves has increased all over Europe and a sizable industry is emerging.
What are Wood Pellets?
Wood pellets are a type of wood fuel, generally speaking they are made from compacted sawdust. They are normally produced as a byproduct of sawmilling and other wood transformation activities.
The wood pellets are extremely dense and can be produced with a low humidity content of below 10% which allows the pellets to be burned with an extremely high combustion efficiency.
The pellets high density also permits compact storage and rational transport over long distance. They can be conveniently blown from a tanker to a storage bunker or silo on a customer's premises.
Wood pellet which is a carbon neutral fuel solution has become one of the most economic biomass fuels the world can provide. Unlike fossil fuels, biomass fuels are a managed renewable resource.
Biomass fuels are carbon neutral, and would help to counter act the impacts of climate change, as they don't add any carbon dioxide to the atmosphere.
This is because the same amount of carbon dioxide is released during the burning process as is absorbed whilst growing, as long as plants continue to be replenished for biomass energy purposes.
