The continuous depletion of renewable sources such as coal, crude oil etc. arise the demand for a substitute source of energy. Biomass is one of the few renewable sources of energy which support the other intermittent renewable energy alternatives. Wood pellet is one such example of biomass fuel. Such fuel is clean-burning, renewable and cost-efficient as compared to other renewable sources of energy. Raw materials used in the production of wood pellets are sawdust, shaving and chips which are then compacted into tiny pellets. On the basis of use, wood pellets are categorized into two segments namely commercial/residential and industrial wood pellets.
Industrial wood pellets are mainly used in power plants for generation of heat and electricity. They can also be used in combined power and heating plants and even on smaller heating plants. Pellets can be used at the whole power plants or on 1-2 boilers only in big power station. Power plants which run on wood pellets need them all over the year.
