Dealing with pest infested wood in the pelleting process
Bathan AG, Chief Operating Officer, Switzerland
* Dr. Holger Streetz : firstname.lastname@example.org
The performance of a pellet plant depends highly on the feedstock quality and the pretreatment. The usual difficulties in operation increase when the wooden raw material is infested with pests and varmints. For the past years, we have been experiencing an increase in infections on a larger and broader scale. This means, more and more forests are experiencing dramatic losses. Infested wood is useless to the timber industry and needs to be removed from the woods to prevent further damage.
