Heating with wood is as old as the human race but it has its disadvantages as well. In the first place, a regular fireplace is very inefficient and a lot of the heat gets wasted going up the chimney. So wood stoves were invented and they were far more efficient because they could be controlled, only making enough heat that could be used and not wasting too much wood. Still, heading out into the forest and cutting trees is hard work and wood stoves need constant attention, cleaning of the chimney, and they can be dangerous as well. Then the pellet stove was invented, it eliminated the need to go into the forest, the pellets were easy to buy at the local store and the stoves could automatically feed themselves for hours on end. Plus, they burned the fuel more efficiently than ever. Now people are looking for ways to make the pellets cheaper, here’s just one way. You can make an investment in a pellet making machine.
There Are Millions Of Farmers With A Huge Waste Problem
Nearly every farmer or agricultural middleman has tons of waste that they have to have hauled away to some expensive landfill. In some states dumping into the landfill has gotten so expensive that it costs more than the farmers can get for their crops. Wouldn’t it be great if all of those waste products like rice hulls, corn stalks, straw, coconut husks, and olive seed husks, could all be turned into wood stove pellets? Now you can find a straw pellet mill for sale on the internet that will do the job.
Of course, for the farmers that have millions of tons of straw left over after every harvest, this could not only save them money but turn into another income stream. And remember, burning the straw as pellets release the same amount of carbon dioxide that letting them rot in the landfill does. It’s actually a green process since the plants, wheat, in this case, use the same amount of carbon when they grow as they release when they burn or rot. Then the carbon dioxide is reused each time the wheat is regrown. No extra greenhouse gases produced.
The fact is, there are many different kinds of straw as well. There is corn stalk straw, sorghum, peanut straw, soybean straw, and rice husks too. All of these can be made into wood stove pellets to either heat homes or business. In fact, many of the same farmers that have giant piles of waste straw were actually paying to heat barns and other storage areas with higher-priced fuels.
When looking for a straw pellet machine for sale, keep in mind that there are several different steps in making the pellets and each one is important. The moisture content must be controlled, the feed stock needs to be ground to a certain size, and the right amount of pressure needs to be applied. When discussing the plant you want to buy make sure they understand the exact feed stock you intend to use in it. Or, if you really want to use it on several different types of feed stock there will be a plant that is better suited for that as well.
