2 Ton Per Hour Wood Pellet Plant Project Setup in Australia
Wood pellets are the biofuels that are manufactured from sawdust or similar wood residues that can be easily obtained from the different industries. Depending on the purpose of use, wood pellets are used on the commercial as well as on a personal level. GEMCO provides customized plan for customers to easily setup complete wood pellet plant at low cost, including factory layout and process design, equipment selection, manufacturing, installation and commissioning and more. Welcomed to contact us to get more project report for your reference!
Setup Wood Pellet Plant Project
2T/H Wood Pellet Plant Project Setup in Australia
- Project Size: Geelong, Victoria, Australia
- Capacity: 2 Tons Per Day
- Raw Materials: Softwood (90%) and Hardwood (10%)
- Final Products: Wood Pellets
- Pelletizing Process: Crushing → Mixing → Pelletizing → Cooling → Elevating → Packing
- Main Equipment:
The 2T/H biomass wood pellet plant was built in Geelong, Victoria, Australia and successfuly completed in 2012. The raw material was the mixture of softwood and hardwood, while softwood takes a proportion of 90%. The required production capacity was 1.5-2ton/h. The best moisture of such mixture should be 12%. The wood pellet production process of this project included crushing, mixing, pelletizing, cooling, elevating and packing. The packages were divided into 15kg per bag and 1ton per bag to meet different market demands. (See more: Successful Biomass Pellet Plant Project Built by GEMCO >>)

Highligts of Australia Wood Pellet Plant Project
The remarkable feature of this wood pellet plant is that it adopts material mixing process, which realizes the stability of raw material entering pelletizing chamber and guarantees the continuous and stable running of equipments. Compared to those pelletzing equipments made in USA or Germany, our wood pelletizing machines can endure a high material moisture content of 13-15%, so that customer can greatly lower the energy input in drying process, thus decreasing production cost.

Commercial Wood Pellet Making Process
The wood pellet making process involves different steps that ensure the production of quality wood pellets. Want to learn how wood pellet production process works? We have divided the whole process into sequential steps. Let’s go through each step to make it more understandable for you!
Commercial Wood Pellet Production Process
- Selection of Raw Material
It is one of the most important steps. The raw material should have good quality. Its quantity depends on how many wood pellets you want to produce. If you are producing wood pellets for personal use, then you can use your farm waste to make pellets. If you want to make wood pellets on the commercial level or want to sell them in the market, then you can use wood waste obtained from numerous industries that supply wood residues. But this wood waste will not be enough if you have a large pellet production line and have to produce wood pellets in a very large amount. You will use wood or branches for large scale production of wood pellets.
- Processing of Raw Material
In the next step, raw material will be processed. It will go through the following stages:
- Sieving: If you doubt that your raw material will have contaminants like stone, plastic, or other particles then sieve the material to separate them.
- Grinding: Material will be ground so that it has a very fine size that is needed for the production of good quality pellets. Wood chippers are used for this purpose.
- Drying: Now the material will be dried so that extra water evaporates and only the needed amount is left behind. If raw material has more moisture content than the normal amount (8% to 10%), the wood pellets produced will not have high density and good quality. In this step, a dryer is used.
- Formation of Pellets
Now comes another crucial step. Biomass pellet mills are used in this step to manufacture wood pellets from the processed raw material. The material will be passed through the machine which will compress it and form pellets of different lengths and diameter. Two types of pellet mills can be used in this step. One is a ring die pellet mill which is mostly used for large scale production. The other one is a flat die pellet mill which is commonly used for small scale production. You can use any of these machines depending on your needs.
- Sieving and Packaging
Before packing the newly formed pellets, they are sieved to separate the fine particles from the pellets. Once a high-quality product is achieved, it is packed into containers or packets so that environmental factors like moisture, etc. do not have any effect on the pellets.
