  • Safety in handling wood pellets

    Canada is primarily a bulk producer and exporter of pellets with large mills that make, on average, 56,000 tonnes per year, said Staffan Melin. When shipped in large volumes, pellets are classified as hazardous material, although wood pellets in consumer bags are benign. For example, carbon monoxide (CO) gas emissions released by pellets killed a person in the cargo hold of a ship in 2002. A ...

  • Focus Bioenergy No 7 2004: Biofuels - heating for the future

    Biofuels for heating of homes and properties is rapidly making headway. Environmentally friendly, comfortable and price-worthy small-scale heating with biofuels is done using pellets or briquettes. Changing an oil burner for a pellets burner or replacing electric heating with a pellet-burning stove is often very profitable. It demands less effort than wood firing but somewhat more work than using ...

  • An irish wood pellet experience

    Richard Smith said he would share his experiences over the last two-and-a-half years. “What we’ve done isn’t necessarily right for here,” he said, “but it worked for us.” Balcas has a number of facilities all over Europe, including a sawmill in Estonia that also produces wood for construction. A pellet plant is currently under construction in Scotland. Balcas has branded its wood pellets brites. ...

  • Physical properties of wood pellets from a novel pelletising process

    In this paper a novel pelletising process is described utilising one-axial compression. Compression tests of saw dust samples were conducted at different applied forces, moisture contents, process temperatures and hold up times using a compression cell powered by an Instron testing machine. Additionally the effect of heating in saturated and unsaturated atmosphere was studied. The densities of ...

  • The biocarbon pellet

    Referring to the “notorious graph of increasing carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere,” Gerry Kutney said the “bioenergy field for the pulp and paper industry has been important for decades, but the general population has only shown interest recently.” Kutney demonstrated the key role vegetation plays in the carbon cycle, with a graph showing the annual fluctuation of the total level in the ...

  • A brief history of the New England wood pellet

    Steve Walker started his company in 1992. New England Wood Pellet has grown from a single, “little tiny mill” to a 100,000-tonne plant; a research, development, and fabrication facility called Biofuel Energy Systems; and Palmer Reload and Packaging Center, which packages product brought by rail from B.C. Walker’s next initiative is to bring boilers into the US industrial northeast commercial ...

  • Charcoal & Wood Pellet Moisture (& Ash) Matters

    Welcome to Moisture Matters, the show where we take your everyday and not so everyday objects and test them to see which has more moisture. Today we’re doing something a bit different. We’ll be testing the moisture content AND the ash content of wood pellets and lump charcoal. So, which do you think will have more moisture and which do you think will have a higher ash content? The ...

  • Production and market Trends: An EU perspective

    Christian Rakos described the European pellet market as being in its infancy, with a limited number of countries participating in three types of business: power, heat, and mixed goods. The market is characterized by dynamic growth, for example, in Italy, France, and Germany. In 2006, Europe experienced a “supply crunch”; prices increased by over 60%, and pellet producers were accused of taking ...

  • Preliminary studies of lignocellulosics and waste fuels for fixed bed gasification

    This study was carried out to understand the decomposition behaviour of a range of biofuel and waste feedstock during gasification in a downdraft gasifier. A laboratory scale large sample thermogravimetric analyser (LSTA) is used which allows the data on burn-out characteristics of different fuel particles to be measured under agitated conditions. The conditions chosen simulate the combustion ...
