Question: Why do we produce wood pellets?
Research & Development
Wood pellets are clean and renewable biomass fuels created by recycling wood and forest residues. The use of wood pellets as an energy source originated in the 1970s and 1980s when several countries in Europe began searching for alternative energy sources to replace fossil fuels. Sweden was among the first countries to modify animal-feeding pellet machines into wood pellet machines and began manufacturing and using wood pellets.
Compared to traditional burnt wood and wood chips, wood pellets have low moisture content, produce less combustion smoke, and have a high density (three times that of wood chips), making them easy to transport and store. Their uniform shape and size allow fluidity like a liquid, making them easy to feed and warehouse and well-suited for automated machinery systems.
We currently operate several wood pellet factories in South Africa and Southeast Asia, each with an annual output of over 60,000 tons.
Each factory can effectively serve users within a 500-kilometer radius of the surrounding area, providing timely, stable, and long-term access to clean energy.
At present, our company mainly produces pine wood pellets.
Fresh wood chips and scraps discarded while processing logs felled from plantation pine forests; no impurities.
Physical compression molding; no additives.
Low ash content; high calorific value; quality complies with European ENplus standards.
