Why pellets may be called "fuel of the future" or about the benefits of these pellets

In America, the pellets were used at the beginning 80s of the last century.  

During this time they have proven themselves from different sides very positively. Today, this relatively new type of fuel is used actively in the world. How do you explain this success? Why did pellets become known as fuel of the future?

Environmental issues

Pellets have a high environmental performance. The pellets have no smell and are made without chemical fixers.

It is neutral material, the amount of ash in the combustion is not more than 3 percent index. Also, the combustion of pellets in the air enters the amount of carbon dioxide that is identical to that which the plant absorbed during its growth. Scientific evidence shows that the use of pellets as a fuel reduces the greenhouse effect in times.

As a result possible accidents during the transportation of pellets, possibility of pollution, as well as the risk of fires or explosions with their participation, are reduced to zero.

Pellets and other fuels - comparative characteristics

Material favorably differs from its old “counterparts” by high levels of thermal conductivity and heat energy release during combustion:

The advantages can safely assume that the absence of dust and dispute in material and because  of that makes it anti-allergy. Efficiency reaches 94%.

Pellets are different from other types of solid fuels that they do not require large storage space and easy to transportation. Their fluidity allows you to actively use the automatic system feeding the pellets into the boiler.

The relevance of heating buildings with pellets

Most Europeans are choosing to heat there rooms just pellet boilers, because their benefits are undeniable:

  • Complete independence from central sources;
  • Maximal automation;
  • Ecological purity;
  • Absolute economy.

Economic and social benefits of fuel pellets

Because raw material for the production of pellets are: wood chips, sawdust, the bark of trees, forest wood residues, hay, fallen leaves, shredded paper, sunflower husk, peat, we must  necessary to rely on the fact the inexhaustible resources and reliability of supply this fuel material.

The production capacity of pellets is increasing every year, which makes it possible to create many new vacancies. A price policy can be called the pellets economical alternative all that exists now.
