Today, USA and Canada are the world's largest pellet exporters, and North America is also the second largest consumer of biomass fuel pellets in the world. Because North American biofuel pellets have a better reputation in the world, as a member of North America, Mexico has this inherent advantage. The Mexican customer's 10t/h wood sawdust pellet plant project is the customer's investment attempt to seize the opportunity to expand the wood pellet manufacturing scale.
Delivery site of Mexico 10tph wood pellet production line for energy pellets
The customer has previously cooperated with other manufacturers on a small wood pellet production line. Since it has been in wood pellet production for more than a year, the quality of the wood pellet manufacturing equipment and the quality of the finished pellets are far from the customer's requirements, and machine failures often occur in production. This time Mexican customer chose to cooperate with Richi Machinery, which is the trust and hope that our customers have after visiting Richi wood pellet equipment and understanding the achievements of Richi in the field of wood pellet manufacturing.
The raw material for the Mexico large scale 10 tons per hour wood pellet manufacturing plant project customized for the customer is mainly Leftover material, sawdust or wood shavings etc. small sized wood., and the pellet size requirement is 8mm. This biomass fuel wood pellet production line is large in scale, innovative in design, highly automated,and adopt the turnkey service promoted by Richi in recent years. From pellet plant design, construction to installation and trial operation, Richi contracted whole renewable energy wood biomass pellet plant construction work.

Biofuel pellets have received increasing international attention lately because of their potential as clean, affordable and renewable energy sources, particularly when produced from agricultural and forest residues. However, knowl- edge about feedstock availability, costs, and potential users of biomass pellets is scarce in Mexico.
We estimate that the market energy potential for pellets from currently available agricultural and forest residues in Mexico is between 131 and 233 PJ/yr, with total costs ranging from 6.3 to 12.8 USD/GJ. Sawdust pellets have the lowest cost and could compete with chips and sawdust for supply distances greater than 400 km and 480 km, depending on the wood pellet production cost. At current fossil fuel prices, sawdust pellets could compete with LPG, fuel oil and residential natural gas.
Potentially, wood fuel pellets could completely replace natural gas demand and 73% of LPG demand for residential and commercial heating. To compete with coal and petroleum coke used in the industrial and power sectors, pellets would need an incentive of 30 and 50 USD per non-emitted CO2 over and above their selling price. Wood fuel pellets may potentially mitigate up to 18% of GHG emissions from electricity production in Mexico.
