Pellets are small cylinders of compressed biomass comprised of wood that is free from moisture. The raw materials that pellets are made from, are agricultural and timber residues (sawdust, wood shavings, olive, corn, grass). Pellets come in various sizes (6mm-8mm) and their color depends on the raw materials used. Pellets are made by compressing the raw materials with high pressure and stream, and their resulting moisture is less than 10%. Pellets are environmentally friendly as there are no chemical additives. Pellets are packed in 15kg bags.
Economy: Using pellets for domestic heating is 50-60% cheaper compared to other heating methods (e.g. petroleum).
Environment: No trees are cut, as pellets are made from timber and lumber byproducts. They do not harm the environment, as they are part of the fauna and only release as much carbon dioxide as they have absorbed during their lifetime. In contrast, pellets reduce the need for fossil fuels that are harmful to the environment.
