Wood pellets are a particularly high energy fuel; even higher than wood in its natural form.
Our recommended option - convenient and easily handled.
Derived from wood by-products from saw mills and wood manufacturing. Pellets are denser, drier (8 - 10% moisture content) and require around a third of the storage space of logs or chips.
Pellet biomass boilers are Biofuel Scotland's preferred option, as they are space efficient and offer simpler storage and operation. Pellets are much easier to use and much more controllable than logs; pellet boilers can run automatically in much the same way that gas or oil boilers operate. Most pellet and chip burners use automatic fuel feeders which refill them at regular intervals.
