Heat supply to a country house, as well as to numerous economic and industrial enterprises is one of the most power consuming, and therefore expensive processes.

This moment is particularly relevant in cold winter. It is not surprising that many owners of private houses and farms are looking for alternative heating methods by which they can reduce their costs. The use of wood fuel for this purpose is quite relevant in the context of the economic crisis. Alternative wood fuels are charcoal, briquettes, pellets. Let us consider in more detail what exactly they are.

Charcoal

For a long time our ancestors were using charcoal for heating. Charcoal is a black solid material with high porosity and absorptive properties. This material is produced by burning wood without air or with small air content. Charcoal retains heat for a long time and cools down slowly. Due to these properties, coal is wide-spread for heating. The only drawback is that the material itself is non-flammable. So, at first you need to burn wood to get enough heat, and only then you can use charcoal. 

Fuel briquettes

This material has become particularly popular these days. Fuel briquettes in Ukraine are 100% natural, environmentally friendly product, as they are manufactured from wood chips. At the same time any foreign additives are completely absent. Material performance properties are high. Briquettes retain heat and warmth almost 3 times longer than ordinary fossil coal or charcoal. In addition, they practically do not emit smoke and for sure they will not sparkle.

Wood pellets

This material is pellets made of natural wood. Tree bark, shavings and sawdust are used for their production. They are treated in the chipping machine; the resulting dust is dried and then pressed. The resulting granules are compact, due to their cylindrical shape they occupy small space, so they are easy to transport and store. Their quality and performance properties considerably exceed the usual wood and coal properties. So, that is why wood pellets initially popular only in Europe have created ripples in our country.
