A type of biofuel derived from processed biomass materials such as shavings, sawdust, wood waste, through high speed centrifugation was pressed into pellets and hard.
Rice husk is the outermost layer of protection encasing a rice grain. It is a yellowish colour and has a convex shape. It is slightly larger than a grain of rice, thus lengths up to 7 mm are possible. Typical dimensions are 4mm by 6mm. It is lightweight, having a ground bulk density of 340kg/m3 to 400kb/m3.

What are wood pellets?
Wood pellets are a common type of biomass. Biomass is any biological material that can be used as fuel—including grass, corn, wood, and biogas as well as other forestry and agricultural residues. Wood pellets are compressed byproducts from the forest products industry, often woodchips and sawdust.
How are wood pellets made?
Wood pellets are produced by compressing the wood / timber material which has first passed through a hammer mill to provide a uniform dough-like mass. This mass is fed to a press where it is squeezed through a die having holes of the size required (normally 6 mm diameter, sometimes 8 mm or larger). The high pressure of the press causes the temperature of the wood to increase greatly, and the lignin plastifies slightly forming a natural ‘glue’ that holds the pellet together as it cools.
Perhaps the greatest advantage of wood pellet fuel is that they cost, on average, 25-50 percent less than fossil heating fuels and provide more stable pricing. Switching to pellet heating saves, on average, $500 annually vs. heating with oil. Here are some of the relative cost comparisons of common heating fuels:

Yes. The difference begins with the quality of the hardwoods used to make the pellets. Dry Creek uses select hardwood materials to ensure the highest BTU output and least amount of ash. The Pellet Fuel Institute sets standards for the grades of wood pellet fuel. Dry Creek Pellets meet or exceed the standard for the highest grades of wood pellet.
Dry Creek sources its hardwood from select forests in New York and Pennsylvania. The climate and soil in these regions produce very dense hardwoods, an excellent source for wood pellets.
Lower-quality pellets are made with a blend of lesser quality hardwood material and have a higher percentage of fines. They can create jamming issues in the stove hopper and burn inefficiently, producing less heat and leaving more ash.
What size are your wood pellets?
Wood pellets are available in 6mm formats to the above quality standards.
One byproduct of burning wood pellets is ash, a non-combustible residue. The container in the stove in which the ash is collected must periodically be emptied and disposed of manually.
This ash makes an excellent fertilizer for lawns, for composting or amending soil. Check with your local municipality for regulations concerning the disposal of ash.
If you are starting out with an alternative heat source, it can be quite expensive to install a chimney to vent emissions from a wood stove. With most pellet stoves, you can vent through a simple, short stainless steel chimney. Wood stoves must be kept at least a foot from any wall; most pellet stoves can be set up three to six inches from a wall, saving space. From an environmental perspective, wood pellets use wood waste and wood byproducts, so trees are not being cut down expressly to provide the heat source.
Dry Creek Super Premium wood pellets are made with only select hardwoods, chosen to produce superior stove performance. Our Premium wood pellets are made from choice hardwoods to ensure they provide optimal performance.
Where are your wood pellets produced?
Our wood pellets are currently produced in Vietnam.
How are wood pellets delivered?
Wood pellets can be delivered in bulk by one of our vehicles blowing the fuel into your store / hopper, or we can deliver 1 tonne bags or smaller bags on a curtain sided vehicle. We are able to send pallet trucks with curtain siders to aide you in unloading the bags. For bagged pellets we are able to deliver within 3 working days of order confirmation, and a next day service is available at a premium. For bulk blown pellets we require at least 2 working days’ notice although more is always preferable.
Which areas do you deliver to?
We can deliver loose bulk blown and bagged wood pellets throughout the Vietnam and Overseas
What methods of payment do you accept?
We accept payments by BACs, cheque, credit card and debit card.
What is the VAT rate for wood pellets?
Wood fuel sold directly to the end user attracts a reduced VAT rate of 5%. Companies that purchase fuel for commissioning purposes or to sell on to end user are required to pay 20% VAT. If you are unsure of your entitlement to pay a reduced rate, please call us on ….. to discuss.
Is there a minimum order quantity?
We have a minimum order quantity of half a pallet (48 x 10kg bags).
How often do I need to place an order?
This depends on a number of factors, mainly the output of your boiler and the load factor that you place on it (likely to be influenced by the weather). We advise that you check your store regularly, on a weekly or fortnightly basis or you could fit a fuel measuring device that will do this for you.
