Compressed wood briquettes and pellets are made from pure biomass – sawdust, shavings and washed tree bark. This material is a wood processing by-product. In contrast to the traditional fossil fuels, the reserves of which are steadily decreasing and price is growing. Wood mass is one of the renewable fuel sources.
• Environmentally friendly
• High calorific value
• Low ash content
• Low water content
• Low storage area requirements
• Feasibility of automation of the pellet firing process
• Pellets as fuel offer a comfort comparable to gas heating
• The energy in one ton of the compacted fuels is equivalent to that in 4 m³ of dry wood.
Wood-based fuels are highly environmentally friendly. They contain no binders, no sulphur, no halogens or heavy metals. The amount of carbon oxide released during the burning of this fuel does not exceed the amount needed by trees for their growth. In other words, wood fuels, in contract to fossil fuels, produce no greenhouse gases capable of causing serious natural disasters, as we can see nearly every day now.
Ash from wood-based fuels should not be thrown away! This ash contains, among other elements and compounds, phosphorus (P), potassium (K), calcium (Ca), magnesium (Mg), potassium hydroxide, silicon oxide, phosphoric acid and important trace metals. It can serve as a valuable mineral fertilizer for your garden or lawn.
BIOMAC ECOLOGICAL FUELS are wrapped in polyethylene sheets which, although not environmentally friendly if incinerated, are easy to recycle. This wrapping material should not end in flames: instead, it should be collected for secondary processing of the plastics. Thank you if you, our customers, do so.
