Biomass Pelleting Industry

Saxlund have over the years design, built, installed and commissioned a number of Turnkey biomass pellet plants around the world.

Able to utilise wet wood straight from the forest, Saxlund are able to provide a cost effective solution to cater for the rapidly growing requirement for high quality pellets.

With the drive to provide efficient processes, Saxlund is able to deliver with partners complete CHP systems able to generate green electricity and provide process heat to belt dryers to produce the raw materials required for a pelleting line. The robustness of the Saxlund Combustion system allows us to utilise the waste materials from the pellet process (bark, compost oversize) directly in our process, thus minimising fuel costs.


Saxlund's unique in-depth knowledge of complex biomass handling systems and biomass combustion makes it the ideal delivery partner for any BioEnergy project.

From material reception for the dryer fuel and pellet raw material, through to the pellet line, Saxlund have the experience to deliver.


Current Projects


2.5MWe Girvan Pelleting Project

The contract is for the design, installation and commissioning of a biomass fired furnace with thermal oil heater for Land Energy’s new wood pellet production facility located near Girvan in Scotland. This is the first major order in the UK for a Saxlund bioenergy power plant designed to make wood fuel pellets for sale and electricity via the Organic Rankine Cycle system.


Previous Projects


Jaunjelgava - Latvia - Biomass Pellet Plant
Fuel pellet plant designed and constructed by Saxlund International AB. The plant uses low value wet forest residues as the fuel for the hot gas generator. This hot gas is then used together with recycled gasses at a temperature of 450C in a rotary dryer designed to dry the material to be pelletised. This material consists largely of sawmill residues and other clean wet softwood that has been processed through a flaker and screening section. The resulting dried wood flakes are then conveyed to a storage silo prior to being fed to the pelletising line. The system is seen by the plant owners as being the most cost effective and energy efficient method of producing the required high quality fuel pellets.
