In the past, people mainly take advantage of feed pellet mill to make feed pellet for animals. But as time goes by, thanks to the development of technology, nowadays pellet mill are capable of turning biomass materials into pellet fuel, which is harder and firmer than feed pellet. Pellet fuel is a kind of renewable fuel which possesses many merits over traditional fossil fuel in many aspects. For example, pellet fuel is more clean, combustion efficient and environmental-harmless. Moreover, the range of raw material for pellet fuel is much wider than feed pellet. For small unit farmer, there are several agricultural residues they can recycle into fuels with small pellet mill.
Wheat straw is commonly seen in the farm. Wheat straw is mainly used in building house, animal bedding and paper production. But with small pellet mill, farmer can transform those stuff into fuels which they can burn to keep their house warm in the cold winter.
Rick husk is usually used to feed animal. But turning them into pellets can bring more profit. One advantage of rick husk pellets is that it is more clean and convenient to keep in storage than. In particular, rick husk is a popular for making pellets because they can skip the step of crushing and milling for they are already small enough to pelletize.
This is also one common material for making biomass pellets.
Sun Flow Stem
Sun flow stem is also accessible in many countries. But you may need to add some binding agents such as vegetable oil in the pelletizing process for lignin is not abundant in this plant.
Surely the agricultural plants is not limited to the species mentioned above, with correct knowledge and guidance about pellet mill production, you can use almost any biomass plant you have to make pellet fuel.
