The wood pellet is wood biomass compressed into a 3.15 to 40 mm long cylinder shape with a diameter of 6 or 8 mm. It is a clean, natural, environmentally-friendly and renewable source of energy.
Wood pellets are manufactured without using any chemical substances, binding agents or added substances. They maintain their shape because they have been compressed at a high temperature, a process during which the naturally-occurring lignin in the wood becomes the substance that binds the pellet together. They are eco-friendly because as they burn, they only emit as much carbon dioxide as the trees they were made from used during their lifetime.
Wood pellets offer a substantially higher heat value than traditional firewood. They are also easier to store and transport, and take up much less space. This ecological fuel is completely natural – it simply comes in a different shape and is used a little differently. Biofuel is becoming an increasingly popular energy alternative in Lithuania, and there is no doubt that it will play a critical role in the world of tomorrow. It's no wonder that this low-pollution biofuel has become a favourite with customers both here and in the rest of the world.
