La Crete Sawmills' pellet fuel is made from clean, dry wood-waste fibre from our own lumber operations and neighbouring sawmills. We only select the finest material and dry it to the lowest moisture possible before using it in the pelletizing process. No additives are used, only the natural resins and binders hold the pellets together.
Wood pellets only require a third of the storage space of cordwood. They are quickly and easily loaded into hoppers where they are automatically fed into the stove. Bulk pellets can also be used in industrial boilers.
Pellet fuel is an efficient and cost effective source of heat. The low moisture content increases combustion efficiency and results in a high heat output. A single bag of fuel can burn for 24 hours or longer.
The fuel produced is a clean, reliable heat with low emissions and less than 1% ash. Material used is a by-product and therefore is considered a renewable wood resource.
