Title: Making Wood Pellets
Post by: johnjbc on October 05, 2008, 07:56:34 AM
Does anyone one have information on making wood pellets? What equipment would it take? Cost?
Is it something that is only profitable on a large scale?

   There was a post about this might want to search it.
   There is a company i Illinois that sells a small unit and there is a company out of china that sells a few diffrent sizes from a little one i would think for personal use to a big plant.
   Look on e-bay they are there i keep thinking about getting the small one from china.
   There is also the brickett (sp??) presses that might be somthing to look at too.
   Look at you-tube there is some good videos that have to do with pellet making.

   Thanks Alot Mr Mom

I assume you mean small scale for home use? Here is a thread that will help: http://www.forestryforum.com/board/index.php/topic,24134.0.html
