Ecology of biofuels
Pressed wood briquettes and pellets
Pressed wood briquettes and pellets are made from pure biomass comprising of sawdust, wood shavings, or washed bark. It is a wood processing by-product. This is different from classic fossil fuels, which are constantly being depleted and whose price is consequently increasing. Wooden material is a renewable fuel resource.
Benefits of using eco-fuels
- environmentally friendly
- high heating value
- low ash content
- low water content
- low demands on storage space
- pellets allow automation of the combustion process
- pellets provide the comparable comfort to gas heating
- energy gained from 1t of pressed fuels is equal to 4m3 of dry wood
Additional benefits of wood fuels
Wood fuels provide a large environmental benefit to our environment. They do not contain any adhesives, sulphur, halogens, or heavy metals. When burning wood, only as much carbon dioxide is released as trees consume during their growth. This means that greenhouse gases are not created as in fossil fuels, which subsequently contribute to the greenhouse effect and natural disasters, not only around the world, but also now in our own country.
Ash as a natural fertilizer
Ash from wood fuels definitely does not belong in the garbage. Such ash, among others, contains phosphorus-P, potassium-K, calcium-Ca, Magnesium-Mg, potassium hydroxide, silicon dioxide, phosphoric acid, and essential trace elements. It is a very rare mineral fertilizer for your garden or lawn.
And what about packaging?
Packages used for packaging our BIOMAC ECO-FUELS are made from polyethylene wrapping; while not environmentally friendly for burning, it may be safely recycled. The packaging should not, under any circumstance, end up in the fire but in waste repositories for secondary processing of plastics. Both we and the environment thank you - our customers, for this.
