What is biomass?
Biomass is all the organic matter found in the earth. As a source of energy, it has tremendous versatility, allowing different procedures obtained by both solid and liquid fuels and gas.
What is Pellet?
The wood pellet fuel is a high performance eco caloric residue obtained from the pressing of radiata pine bark, of high quality. The raw material, wood waste should be clean without any chemical additives, it is compressed by a mechanical process achieving a homogenous fuel of high calorific value and low moisture content.
Economics: The pellet is 50% cheaper than fossil fuels. Using pellet you do not depend on the constant changes in the prices of other fuels.
Ecology: : It is a renewable energy source (with CO2-neutral). Using pellet, you contribute to a significantly reduce the emission of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The pellet combustion is more efficient than the combustion of the fuel and therefore emissions are minimal. Decreases acid rain, because pellets does not have sulfur in its composition.
If pruning residues and mount cleaning are used to make pellets, the residue is revalued. This will encourage forest clearing, creating or improving wildlife habitats and preventing fires. The ash resulting from the combustion of pellets is minimal due to the high combustion efficiency (for an installation of 15 kW, about 25 kg of annual ash) and is completely biodegradable, even it is also a good fertilizer.
