The commissioning of the first pellet presses in 1998 marked the start of a real boom for wood pellets in Central Europe. Currently, more than 200,000 households in Austria, 500,000 households in Germany and numerous companies rely on pellet heating systems and appreciate this sustainable, low-cost method of heating, which was originally intended to be a niche market.
At Cycleenergy, we are dedicated to the production of top-quality pellets according to ENplus A1 standard. Conformity with ENplus A1 is certified by independent experts at regular intervals.
We use only untreated sawdust and wood shavings as well as industrial wood chips and wood logs for the production of our wood pellets. Binding is accomplished through the lignin contained in the wood, that binds the wood particles as a consequence of both the high temperature of over 100°C and the pressure applied when the wood pellets are pressed through the pellet matrices. Up to 1.8% starch is added to improve sliding properties and reduce abrasion. The pressed pellets are then cooled, screened, and stored and packed for subsequent delivery to customers.
