Wood and sawdust
Drying wood chips or sawdust
Throughout the year our dryers use residual heat (for instance from electricity generation) for drying wood chips and sawdust.
Dorset has much experience in drying wood chips and sawdust. Throughout the year our dryers use residual heat (for instance from electricity generation) for drying wood chips and sawdust. The drying of wood increases the combustion value and lowers storage costs (less sensitive to natural harmful effects).
This is also a frequently used pre-treatment in wood gasification, or for processing wood into briquettes, panels and similar products.
