Torrefied Wood Pellets is an Evolution for Biomass Fuel
Keywords: torrefied wood
pellets,biomass pellet mill
TOR wood pellet, nowadays, is getting active in biomass fuel market because of its
outstanding performance in industrial heating. With a black surface and higher energy
density, it is likely called man made coal or bio coal. Then, what’s torrefied wood
pellets and how’s it made?
What is torrefaction for biomass pellets making?
What makes torrefied wood pellets special is the raw materials that it’s made of. The
raw materials for torrefied wood pellets is produced under torrefaction effect. Raw
material is also the key difference between biomass wood pellets and the torrefied
wood pellet. Processed by torrefaction effect, the raw materials are changed to obtain
Reaction conditions: normal atmospheric pressure; low oxygen condition; temperature
220℃ ~ 320℃; reaction time 20 ~ 30 minutes.
Reaction process: Step 1: As temperature rises up, the water contained in the biomass
as well as superfluous volatiles are released.
Step 2: The biopolymers in biomass materials such as lignin,
hemicellulose and cellulose partly decompose to give off various types of volatiles.
The final torrefied biomass materials are solid, dry and blackened.

Superior Performance of Torrefied Wood Pellets
With a higher energy density, less water content, pure composition, torrefied wood
pellet has a lot of advantages comparing with wood pellets and even coal.
1. With a higher energy density, torrefied wood pellets performs more efficiently than
common wood pellets in power plant to replace coal.
2. With less water content, it is not easy to get damp, thus to save longer.
3. Torrefied wood pellet is a carbon neutral product. No polluting gases is be released
during its burning.
4. After torrefied, biomass materials turn out to have a higher grindability index and
they are easier to pelletize by biomass pellet mill.
5. More dense, the shipping cost of torrefied wood pellets is less than that of wood
