Pellets: a revolution in home heating

The diagram illustrates how the pellets are transformed during combustion. Thanks to the combined action of the sun’s energy, carbon dioxide, water and the dissolved mineral salts, the pellets are constantly renewed.

The combustion releases the same amount of CO2 as the quantity absorbed and developed by a tree during the growth and the natural decomposition in a forest. The combustion of pellets, therefore, does not increase the CO2 quantity of the atmosphere.

The other important aspect of the pellet is the content of ash: while firewood bark contains various impurities, a good quality pellet has an ash content less than 1% of the total weight.
