PELLETS@LAS Wood Pellet Handbooks and Boiler Calculation Tool

In order to promote the utilisation of wood pellets in Europe a wood pellet handbook and a boiler change calculation tool for public use has been developed.

The wood pellet handbooks are available online in English, Italian and Polish. Existing Austrian, Danish and German handbooks are also promoted via the website. The wood pellet handbooks contain general and technical information on production, transport, storage and utilisation of pellets as well as market and legislative aspects. The basis for the handbook is the existing Danish wood pellet handbook (Træpillehandbogen, FORCE Technology, 2002), which is a publicly available document. It has been a great success in Denmark and contributed largely to the development of the pellets market in Denmark. The PELLETS@LAS wood pellet handbooks can be downloaded using the menu structure to the left or via the Publication section.

The PELLETS@LAS Wood Pellet Boiler Calculation Tool provides a free estimate of the nominal wood pellet boiler size and potential fuel cost savings when substituting an oil fired or natural gas fired boiler with a wood pellet boiler at the current fuel price level. The tool is designed to handle boiler systems for small and medium sized residential buildings. The tool can be downloaded using the menu structure to the left or via the Publication section.
