What are pellets?

Wood pellet is a type of fuel from biomass that is produced by grinding various types of wood waste in the primary processing (pulp wood, pieces of bark, chopped wood and sawdust), which is then in the form of sawdust pressed under high pressure (without adding any admixture) into cylindrical shapes.
Pellet is used for automatic heating systems exclusively, which can be programmed, as opposed to solid fuel (wood, coal...), where possible, only manually firing.
Utilization of energy in the pellets is also very large, over 90%, while for coal and wood that degree is maximum 70%.
Pellet is one of the eco - renewable fuels, with negligible emission of harmful gases (CO, NOx and dust), and as such is considered to be one of the few absolutely natural, safe and healthy energy products.
Pellet is produces from ecological and pure domestic type of wood that are made up of:

  • 70% fir/spruce and 30% beech,
  • 50% fir/spruce and 50% beech.
  • 100% fir.

Packaging
  1. PE bags of 15 kg
    (70 bags per pallet - 1050 kg)
    a) Bags with well-known design that is present on the EU market since 2009 and logo Ensa BH
    b) Packing bags with special design according to the needs and requirements of the customer.

    Thus pellet packed in pallets of 1050 kg in the deliveries during loading cargoes in 23 pallets,
    that is 24 150 kg or maximum allowable gross bearing capacity in the truck.

  2. PE bags of 1000 kg
    called BigBag weight 1000 kg, dimensions 91 x 91 × 180 cm
    During tow truck delivery, cargoes with 24 bags.
