Quality due to pellet hardness
Plospan wood pellets owe their strong market position to their excellent quality. They stand out from other pellets especially because of their hardness. Plospan woodpellets are CO2 neutral. This means that the trees used as the raw materials to make our biomass pellets absorb the same amount of CO2emitted when the woodpellets are burnt. The specially pressed woodpellets have an extraordinarily high heating value.
Germany and the Scandinavian countries are the frontrunners in the use of this alternative fuel, but Dutch consumers are also becoming increasingly more interested in eco-friendly forms of heating. This is mainly being spurred on by rising fuel prices and increasing pressure to reduce CO2 emissions.
Plospan wood pellets are particularly suitable for use in small and medium-sized automatic heating systems. Because they are exceptionally compact and solid, they have a very clean, easily controllable rate of combustion. See the table below for an impression of the measured heating values of different types of fuel:
- 1 m3 natural gas 31.65 MJ
- 1 kg fuel oil 41.9 MJ
- 1 kg Plospan biomass wood pellets 18.5 MJ
Upcycling: the new recycling
Other people often talk about recycling, but we prefer to use the term ‘upcycling’. What other people usually think of as waste forms the basis for Plomp & Zonen B.V.’s ‘new’ top-line products. And ‘upcycling’ certainly applies to our Plospan wood pellets!
