Pellets combine many positive properties. Like all wood fuels, pellets are CO2-neutral, because here, too, only the CO2 is released that was previously absorbed by the tree during growth. In addition, pellets are relatively stable in price and inexpensive, especially compared to fossil fuels. Another advantage is that pellets are produced locally, are independent of raw material imports from abroad and create added value in the region. Last but not least, pellets can be used flexibly - in the small output range, e.g., as a replacement for oil heating, all the way to municipal heating networks.
