BIOMASS – ORGANIC MATTER USED FOR THE GENERATION OF HEAT

 

Wood pellets are heating fuels made from wood or plant by­products, most often sawdust or waste from sawmills or wood product manufacturers. They’re a compressed biomass product, produced with a low moisture content for optimal burning time and temperature.

Wood pellets are stored and distributed in various bag sizes or, in bulk, in large silos.
