Areas of application

There is a wide range of applications for pellets from biomass and we have only highlighted a few areas here as examples. The listing reflects neither a focus nor a valuation. In principle, almost any biomass that has a moisture content of less than 15% can be pressed into a pellet form.

Food

Advantages:

  • Own mixtures for optimal yield
  • Utilization of own resources
  • 100% control over ingredients (organic)
  • Production of small quantities is economically viable
  • Easy production and saving of storage space (volume up to 9:1)
  • Easy transport (quick and easy relocation, due to blowing and suction system)
  • Simple dosage
  • Easy resale in small units

Suitable starting materials:

  • Rosehip
  • Nettle
  • Lime mint
  • Green oat
  • Hops

 

 

 

 

Fertilizer

Advantages:

  • Own mixtures for optimal yield
  • Utilization of own resources
  • 100% control over ingredients (organic)
  • Long-term fertilization possible - nutrients are released slowly into the soil
  • No segregation of the fertilizer
  • Production of small quantities is economically viable
  • Easy production and saving of storage space (volume 3:1)
  • Easy transport (quick and easy relocation, due to blowing and suction system)
  • Protection against pollution/dust
  • Protection against vermin
  • Protection against mold
  • Easy dosage
  • Easy resale in small units

Suitable raw materials:

  • Sheep wool
  • Fermentation substrates
  • Chicken manure
  • Alpaca dung
  • Horse manure
  • Pig manure
  • Cattle manure
  • Fermentation residues from biogas plant
  • Mushroom compost
  • etc.

Animal feed / Treats

Advantages:

  • Own recipes/mixtures
  • 100% control over the ingredients (organic)
  • No segregation of the feed
  • Production of small quantities can already be economically profitable
  • Easy production and saving of storage space (volume 3:1)
  • Easy transport (quick and easy relocation, due to blowing and suction system)
  • Protection against pollution/dust
  • Protection against vermin
  • Protection against mold
  • Easy dosage
  • Easy resale in small units
  • Useful utilization of waste materials with new products (horse treats...)

Starting material:

  • Carrot residues, fruit residues (juice presses)
  • Sugar beet peels (sugar producers)
  • Hay (farmers, horse farmers)

 

Animal bedding

Advantages:

  • Utilize optimal absorbency of the pellets
  • 100% control over the ingredients (organic)
  • Much less dust exposure during placement/spreading
  • Fewer replacement intervals
  • Production of small quantities is economically viable
  • Easy production and saving of storage space (volume 4:1)
  • Easy transport (quick and easy relocation, due to blowing and suction system)
  • Protection against pollution/dust
  • Protection against vermin
  • Protection against mold
  • Easy dosage
  • Easy resale in small units
  • Further processing into fertilizer possible

Raw material:

  • Sawdust (sawmill)
  • Straw (horse husbandry)
  • Husks (for keeping various species of animals)
  • Hemp
  • Fermentation substrates

 

Energy

Advantages:

  • Valuable, energy-rich raw material becomes usable for machine firing
  • Income for waste products
  • Self-sufficiency
  • Protection against dust explosion in case of combustible materials
  • Production of small quantities is economically viable
  • Easy production and saving of storage space (volume 4:1)
  • Easy transport (quick and easy relocation, due to blowing and suction system)
  • Protection against pollution/dust
  • Protection against vermin
  • Protection against mold
  • Easy dosage
  • Easy resale in small and large units

Raw material:

  • Sawdust (sawmill)
  • Pellet crushed or dust (pellet mills; pellet transport companies)
  • Wood chips (forester, sawmill)
  • Board offcuts (carpenter's workshop; workshops for the disabled)
  • Baking waste (bakery; 25% overproduction per day)
  • Nut shells (manufacturer; recycler)
  • Wood and energy crops
  • Fruit pits and fruit residues
  • Coffee husk residues

 

Recycling material

During the processing of PVC, large amounts of fibers and dusts can be produced. In the pelletizing process, these materials can be formed back into granules, thus this material can be used again in the injection molding process.

 

 

PU foam waste material usually has to be disposed of by volume. Due to the compaction of approx. 20:1, very high disposal areas and thus costs can be saved.
