Burning pellets – how does it work?
Pellets is a climate-neutral fuel as incineration emits the same amount of carbon dioxide as the tree absorbed from the air when it grew. By using pellets, you are contributing to a sustainable society. Today, pellets incineration is almost entirely automated. Though you do need to remove ash, clean the unit and replenish the pellets. The level of management and maintenance required by the unit depends on the solution you choose. Pellets has a higher energy content than, for example, wood and should therefore be incinerated in special boilers, burners and stoves. You can heat your building using a pellets burner or pellets stove. Pellets burners can be built onto an existing boiler – oil boiler, wood stove or dual-fuel boiler. The pellets stove can replace 50-80% of your heating, depending on the output, the size and the design of the building. Today, there are even stoves that do not require the installation of a chimney, if you mount the unit on an outer wall. If you change from electric heating to pellets, carbon emissions decrease about 50 times. If you change from oil to pellets, emissions decrease about 170 times.
Why are pellets good for compost?
In a compost, various types of fungus and bacteria break down the organic waste to water and different nutrients. The process requires access to oxygen, carbon and nitrogen. About 30 parts carbon are needed for one part nitrogen. Green waste and food waste are highly rich in nitrogen. This is why carbon must be added. The addition of wood pellets or sawdust supplies carbon in the form required for composting. It is also important that the compost remains loose and is not too wet, and pellets can also help with this.
