waste wood recycling and processing1/28
I would like information on recycling waste wood. I work for the largest manufacture of roof, and floor trusses as well as wall panels in the US. We generate 400 cubic yards of clean wood waste per week at one location alone. With production increasing this number will increase as well. I see an opportunity here and need your help.
Wood pellets are a good use for all that softwood. I think the market for pellet stoves is pretty good. I use them for cat litter and there is nothing better.
There are many biomass burners up here in the midwest burning all the wood they can get their hands on.
I presume your wast is SPF rips and offcuts? Not sure what kind of end product you could make with that kind of stuff though.
Not sure where you are located Jonathan but as Jason noted, here in the midwest there are many facilities burning biomass. Also, have you explored the mulch market? It's typically a higher value-added product than fuel.
My company manufactures grinding equipment that generates a product that can be used for wood fuel, animal bedding or mulch to name a few. Feel free to look up weimaamerica.com
If you have a wood grinder to make a uniform chip, you can blow or auger all the waste into trailers and sell the product for wood pellets, briquettes, or animal bedding.You can do this yourself if you want to have a seperate sawdust business and have your own trailers, tractor, driver etc. In some areas, you can get a sawdust guy with thier own equipment that pays you by the load or ton and then he figures out where to deliver it and you have fewer headaches.
Hello,Johnathan. Using your wasted wood materials to make fuelpellets to be the best choice for recycling and value adding. We are the manufacturer of wood pellet mill, specialized machines for wood pellet. Output for pellets from 0.5 ton to 2-3 ton/h, more detailed to see our website:www.pelletmillchina.com
Over the pond here, all that timber offcuts from kit house manufacturing cant be sold for firewood.
Due to the fact that the wood has been treated with preservative, anti fungals, etc,
Wood is actually the Co2 of your granddad !
