In July, some 19,814 tonnes of pellets were produced at BioNorr in Härnösand, thereby beating last year’s record by 744 tonnes. The process has also become more energy efficient
Several areas have contributed to the new record, a renewal of parts of the process equipment has enhanced the efficiency of pellets production. A major refurbishment project was carried out in the spring on the older production line during which a new fuel mill was fitted, the flue gas cooler was replaced and the flue gas channels were modified, among other measures. One reason is also the dry summer. An advantage has been that the raw material already had a low moisture content when being fed into the mill.
