What are they made from?
They are made from 100% wood either from sawdust or shavings which is dried and pulverised. There are no additives. The Lignin within the wood acts as a natural binder to form the pellet. It is then fed into the centre of a large steel die and 'pressed' through 6mm holes to form the cylindrical shapes.
How are they used?
Wood Pellets are made in cylindrical shapes from compressed sawdust. The most common size used in domestic appliances has a diameter of approximately 6mm, although some appliances can use pellets with a larger diameter. They are also produced in 8mm. See your appliance for the correct size, but 6mm is the best size for domestic indoor appliances. They are for use in wood pellet stoves and boilers, but can be used in an open fire with a pellet basket.
