Wood Pellets – Biomass – Renewable Fuel – Flex Fuel
These are common terms used to refer to the multi-fuels burned in MagnuM brand pellet stoves and fireplaces. When we talk about our appliances being able to burn a variety of renewable fuel sources, people seem to have a lot of questions. Because wood pellets are often easily accessible and familiar to many, people focus on wood pellets as a source of fuel.
Some of the common wood pellet questions we get are:
- What are wood pellets are made out of?
- Where does the wood comes from?
- Does the formation of wood pellets harm trees or our environment?
Wood Pellets have been made primarily out of saw dust created in the mill-work of lumber. This has been expanded into pellets made from waste paper, garbage and other waste products. Wood Pellets help clean up the decaying of scrap and downed wood that actually helps clean the environment by controlling the combustion of the wood, rather than just letting it sit out in the weather and rot.
There is research being done on numerous agri-fuel waste products such as the distillers grain left over from the production of ethanol, waste from the harvesting of agri-crops and even things like coffee husks, etc.
More agri-fuel waste research? Future generations will thank us!
Making sure you burn quality fuel is very important to how smoothly and efficiently your pellet stove will run. Learn more about selecting quality bio-mass fuel. Also, how you store your fuel is important.
