SOME OF OUR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do you bind the pellets together? Do you use glue?
This is probably the most frequent question we get asked. What binds our pellets together? Wood. We don't add any ingredients to our wood. Not oil. Not plastic. We use massive amounts of pressure and heat to force dried wood through small holes. This pressure and heat squeezes the natural lignin out of the wood and melts it. When it is cooled and hardened, the lignin forms that nice shiny surface on the pellets and binds them together.
That is also why the pellets need to be kept dry. Our pellets are only about 5% moisture (undried wood is typically about 50% moisture depending on the season and type of wood). If the pellets get wet at all, the bond created with the lignen will break down and the pellets will become sawdust.
