The pellet

biomasa

Wood pellets are a biofuel made from wood chips without any additives; they have a cylindrical shape with a 6 mm diameter and a length below 4.5 cm. Their low moisture content and high energy value have many advantages: reduced storage space, good combustion, autonomous operation of stoves and boilers, transport and commercialization versatility.
