The future belongs to wood pellets

IBV: Low-emission drying as decisive advantage for an efficient production

Since their introduction in the German market about 10 years ago, the success of wood pellets has been remarkable. Roughly 720,000 t of pellets were produced during the first half of 2010 in Germany alone. Industry calculations predict that by 2015 already 500,000 pellet heating systems will be installed in private residencies, and by 2020 even in excess of one million. Additional growth drivers are large power plants with an annual pellet consumption of up to 1.2 million t. More and more coal-fired power plants rely on wood pellets for power generation to reach the legally specified limit values for CO2 emissions. Unlike other fossil fuels, the use of wood pallets is largely CO2-neutral and thus climate friendly. One of the leading European pellet manufacturers with its own sawmill and power plant is the Industrie du Bois Vielsam Cie. s.a. (IBV) in Belgium. For its annual pellet production of 150,000 t, the company relies on low-emission, low-temperature belt dryers with process belts from GKD – Gebr. Kufferath AG.
