How to Manage the Raw Materials in Manufacturing Wood Pellets

BY James Wang

Managing the raw material is one of the greatest processes concerning for running a pellet manufacturing facility. It is suggestive that raw materials should to be sourced locally for their bulk density makes them too costly to transport over long distances. Also most of the time, the raw material is some forestry residues. If we transport a large amount of residues from a faraway place, it would be not worthy.

Also the availability of raw material is the main determinant of plant scale. Plant scale, in turn, has influence on the efficiency and ultimately the profitability of the operation. But there are still most plants consume only wood residues to meet market demand, however, it can restrict their production potential for wood resource is limited in one area.

The limitation on transporting raw materials also impacts the potential number of suppliers to those within the local area. Most of the time, pellets manufacturing heavily depend on the local sawmills. They always sign a long term supply agreements as a common way to ensure their facilities can able to operate in the future.

In addiction, the pelletizing process operates continuously in contrary with that raw materials are delivered batch by batch. Which means something to stockpile raw materials is required. The form of bins is the most common solution. A bin is a covered building, a cement pad or piles on the ground. The cost of a storage system is necessary for keeping the inputs clean can minimize the need for unnecessary maintenance costs.

Some people adopt open air storage systems to reduce the moisture content of some raw materials to reduce the cost of drying process.
