Photos of the Wood Pellet Manufacturing Company
This wood pellet manufacturing company was designed and built for one of our client in Italy. It is equipped with automatic feeding and drying system, so that the labor cost is largely reduced. The photos below show some details of the factory inside. (Related Project: 2-3TPH Chestnut Wood Pelletizing Line in Italy )
Cost of Proucing Wood Pellets
When it comes the cost of producing wood pellets, a lot of factors comes into play if you want to start your own wood pellets company. The cost typically ranges from 100000 to 10000000 RMB. The finished pellets are usually used for heating larger power plants and industrial boilers. They are also used at home to meet eco-friendly requirements and alleviate energy problems. These pellets can generally be made from wood logs, wood shavings, saw dust, biomass straw, and forestry wastes. Outlined here are some of the factors affecting the cost.
- The Raw Material
For the production to take place, the process requires a moisture of 10-15% and raw material of size 2-6mm. without these conditions, there will have to be preprocessing. You need a crushing equipment to crush wood waste and branches. You also need a drying equipment for a high moisture level. More equipment will, therefore, affect the price upwards.
- The Yield
The first major factor that determines the pellet plant cost is the production output. Since you need a large machinery and high efficiency to produce a large yield, it means the price will also be high. A higher output capacity corresponds to the higher price level.

- The Process
The production process can be defined as the operation mode and automation degree of the production line. A high degree of operation means a high price. The higher the degree of the transport and the running mode, the lesser the dust and the higher the price. Conversely, a simple process automatically means a cheaper price. Once the production process is complete, packing is necessary to protect the pellets. (Related Article: How to Make Budget of Wood Pellet Plant? )
- The Quality
With the wood pellet manufacturing industry currently booming, many people start with the market. There are different prices and qualities brought about by lots of manufacturers in the market. Good pellet manufacturers are not only stable and but also tech savvy. This means that their prices will also be high. To produce your own pellet fuel, you must get good manufacturers with a stable technical support.
