Wood pellets are manufactured from woody biomass fuel made from compressed wood waste usually sawdust or shavings. The moisture content is around 6-8% and no resin is used as lignin is the binder. In today’s economy, where oil prices constantly vary and global energy consumption is at a peak, consumers are looking for renewable energy to heat their homes, and wood pellets have begun to fill that need in earnest. The current demand for wood pellets is far surpassing supply.
Designing a wood pellet plant is not simply purchasing the complete wood pellet production machines, especially for the wood pellet-manufacturing beginners who may do not even know where to begin. Because the wood pellet plant manufacturing project is complex, there are so many factors and aspects to be considered, and different risks to be assessed. Therefore, if you want to build a successful wood pellet plant, a professional wood pellet plant design consultant is helpful.
