Premium pellets

 Only debarked coniferous sawdust and shavings are used for the production of premium pellets to provide a light color and low ash content within 0,3 - 0,5% (standard sets ≤ 0,7%). Premium pellets fully conform to the requirements of German standard DINplus and the European standard ENplus-A1. Premium pellets are offered to customers packed in 15 kg plastic bags on pallets (60 or 65 bags on one pallet) or in 1000 kg big-bags.

Industrial pellets

 For the production of industrial pellets coniferous (pine, fir) sawdust as well as wood chips and processed firewood (partly deciduous) are used. Industrial pellets are of a high quality that corresponds to all the ENplus-A1 requirements except the ash content, which is usually within 0,7 - 1,1% (ENplus-A2 sets ash content ≤ 1,5%). Industrial pellets are offered to customers in bulk and packed in 1000 kg big-bags.
