Woodchips are an innovative energy source and a viable alternative for limited reserves of fossil fuels like oil, coal and gas.
Dried woodchips can be stored without significant reductions in heating value.
Woodchips with moisture content less than 30% are "suitable for storage."
Because chips with moisture content lower than 30% are stored, energy loss and the expected micro-bacterial decay are kept to a minimum.
Drying woodchips using waste-based heat sources.
Heat sources like e.g. bio-gas systems or systems for combined electricity/heat production often produce excess heat in the summer. This excess heat is often released into the open air using a cooling system. HB Container dryers are thus often used to replace such cooling systems.
