Development of a wood pellet produced mainly from hardwoods
The GRAMIX project, through its industrial research programme, aims to develop a mixed hardwood/softwood pellet whose composition, parameters and production costs should make it possible to meet the quality requirements of the certifications and to be valued at the market price of “white” pellets.
- Select and characterise the species of interest, including national variability, to facilitate the transfer of the approach to the French industry
- Development of conditions for the production of hardwood pellets on a pilot scale
- Transfer and optimisation of material preparation (debarking, chipping), drying/pressing and pelleting conditions on an industrial line
