At the beginning of September, Ikea Industry Poland commissioned a pellet plant at the Stalowa Wola sawmill site, reports the Polish website Money.pl.
The plant has two presses with an output of 10 tonnes/hour, therefore the plant's annual production capacity is about 60 tonnes of pellets. The sawmill's by-products are used as a raw material for pellets.
According to Ikea's statements, the pellets manufactured at the new line in Stalowa Wola are a high quality product. They have a low ash content and a high heating value.
The EN + A1 and DIN PLUS certification procedures are currently underway.
Pellets produced in Stalowa Wola will be mainly exported to Italy, Germany and Denmark.
