Our BADGER Pellets® are DIN plus certified, with EN plus A1 certification since 2016. The EN plus certification scheme has been developed by the European Pellet Council, the umbrella organisation for the associations that promote pellet heating in every country in Europe. This independent body performs regular audits to guarantee compliance with the product standard until delivery to the end customer.
The pellet production unit uses only fresh bark. The raw material used to manufacture wood pellets consists of sawdust, fresh wood shavings and small logs which are not suitable for the manufacture of durable goods. We check the properties and variations of this material. In fact, the final quality of our pellets depends on the quality of the raw material. Thanks to the stability of this material, BADGER Pellets® ensure constant quality that is ideal for use in your stoves and boilers.
The bark is first removed from the logs, which are then cut into pieces, reduced to shavings and transferred to a silo of damp shavings and sawdust.
The next stage in the process is to remove any ferrous metals from the flow of materials using a magnetic separator. The sawdust is passed through a riddle and then taken to a low-temperature drier, while shavings that are too large go to a crusher, where they are broken up. They are then passed through the riddle once again.
In the low-temperature drier (powered by thermal heat produced via the cogeneration unit), the sawdust is scattered onto a wide belt over which hot air is blown across the entire length so that the sawdust is dried until it reaches a humidity level of approximately 8%. It is then transferred to the silo. The dry sawdust is conveyed to pellet presses, where the wood is placed under high pressure as it passes through spinnets (extrusion) and thus converted into wood pellets. Finally, the pellets are cooled, sieved and placed in the pellet silo.
We have an efficient distribution network in the Greater Region! The pellets are decanted from the silo to a filling unit, from which they are loaded into the blower trucks used to make bulk deliveries. To ensure a professional supply procedure, BADGER Pellets® are distributed in Luxembourg by the company Husting – Reiser. This distributor has its own blower trucks (metrology-approved) to provide you with the best service and a high-quality product. BADGER Pellets® can also be delivered to you in 15-kg bags.
