Why Dry Woodchips?

The usable heating energy (calorific value) of wood chips depends much more on water content of the wood chips than on the species of wood. Fresh wood chips with a water content of 55% (W55) provide approx. 2000 kWh in energy per ton.

By drying the wood chips to 20% water content (W20), the calorific value is increased enormously up to around 4000 kWh per ton. Or in other words: in a burning process of one ton of dried wood chips approx. 400 l of heating oil can be substituted.

For wood chip boilers, dry wood chips equate to higher efficiency, clean and more even combustion that in turn ensures trouble-free operation and a long-lasting lifetime of the heating system.
