Agripellets, as biomass fuel, are becoming more and more popular, as their heat value is on the same level as of coal. The advantages of agripellets are that, compared to raw biomass, they are of significantly smaller volume (up to 10x). They are made of natural materials, without additives, where the binding component is natural organic compound, called lignin. It is contained in cell structure of plants.
Pellets are manufactured by compressing dry plants (straw, hay, etc.), chopped into a fine fraction, turning them into pellets of a diameter of 6, 8 and 12 mm and 20 to 40 mm long. These pellets are highly concentrated fuel material with a density of 1.4 kg / dm3 (more heavy and dense than wood). They have excellent properties especially when burning in automatic boilers, because they allow easy handling, automatic dosing and temperature regulation of the boiler with minimum maintenance and with programmable cycles.
Storage, packaging and transport to retail consumers are much more convenient, compared to wood and coal. And what’s more, agripellets produce significantly less solid waste (5-10 times less compared to coal), less pollution and enable to keep the consumer’s site clean.
