Advantages of biomass pellet fuel

Apr. 10, 2024

As a new type of pellet fuel, biomass pellets have won wide recognition for their unique advantages. Compared with traditional fuels, it not only has economic advantages but also environmental benefits, and fully meets the requirements of sustainable development. The formed pellet fuel has a large specific gravity, small size, combustion resistance, and is easy to store and transport. The volume after molding is 1/30~40 of the volume of the raw material, and the specific gravity is 10~15 times that of the raw material (density: 0.8-1.4). The calorific value can reach 3400~6000 kcal, and it is a solid fuel with high volatile phenol.

1.High Calories. Biomass pellet fuel has a large calorific value, with a calorific value of about 3900-4800 kcal/kg. After carbonization, the calorific value is as high as 7000-8000 kcal/kg.

2.Efficient. Biomass pellet fuel has high purity and does not contain other impurities that do not produce heat. Its carbon content is 75-85%, ash content is 3-6%, and moisture content is 1-3%. It does not contain coal gangue, stone and other n impurities that do not generate heat but consume heat, which will directly reduce costs for enterprises.

3. Environmental Friendly

Biomass pellet fuel is made from natural plants and does not contain any artificial additives, sulfur or phosphorus, so it will not cause pollution to the environment. And during the combustion process, it will only release the carbon dioxide absorbed during plant growth and will not produce new greenhouse gases. Therefore, it is a very environmentally friendly fuel.

4.Save Space

Compared with bulk biomass, biomass pellet fuel has been compressed at high temperatures and has a high relative density, which greatly saves storage space and is easy to store and transport.

5、Safe to use:

Biomass pellet fuel is derived from biofertilizer or wood in a natural state and does not contain chemical substances that are prone to fission or explosion, so poisoning, explosion, leakage and other accidents will not occur.

6、Sustainable use:

The ash after burning biomass pellet fuel is an extremely high-quality organic potassium fertilizer, which can be used as fertilizer to promote the growth of new plants and enter a new cycle, so that the supply of biological resources can be continuously utilized.


The raw material of biomass pellet fuel comes from nature and is easily available, so it is a renewable resource. In contrast, the reserves of traditional fuels such as coal and oil are very limited. The use of biomass pellet fuel can reduce dependence on fossil energy and promote sustainable development.

8.Wide range of application

The combustion method of biomass pellet fuel is similar to that of traditional fuel and is suitable for various types of heat source equipment. For example, power plants, boilers, heating equipment, hot air stoves and food processing enterprises, etc., are widely used in many fields such as industry, agriculture, and family life.

The wood pellet machine can use agricultural and forestry processing waste such as wood chips, straw, rice husks, bark and other biomass as raw materials, and solidify them into high-density pellet fuel through pretreatment and processing. It is an ideal fuel to replace kerosene. It can save energy and reduce emissions. It is an efficient, clean and renewable energy. Biomass pellets can be used instead of coal. Biomass pellets can be used in enterprises that only use coal.
