Wood Pellet Production Process Design

  1. Chipping: The wood waste purchased for the 1-1.5t/h wood pellet plant in Japan project is crushed by a wood chipper machine and becomes wood chaff.
  2. Crushing: The wood chaff after the wood is crushed by the crusher is then crushed into finer sawdust by the wood hammer mill crusher.
  3. Drying: Due to the high moisture content of raw materials, it is not conducive to granulation, so the moisture needs to be removed by a dryer.
  4. Pelleting & Cooling: The dried wood sawdust are transported to the storage tank of the press machine through the automatic conveyor belt. The wood chips in the storage tank enter the wood sawdust pellet press machine to make wood pellets, and then the wood pellets are cooled in the pellet cooler machine.
  5. Screening & Packaging: After cooling section, the finished pellets will be screened. And then the biomass wood pellets will be packaged according to the specifications required by the customer, and can be shipped after packaging. Note: The project does not have cooking, soaking wood, painting and other processes.complete pellet plant process

Pelletizing principle: This process needs to consume a lot of energy. During the process of wood pellet pressing, the pressure reaches 50~100MPa, the raw material deforms and heats up under high pressure, and the temperature can reach 80°C~90°C . The drive of the motor consumes a lot of electric energy .

Layout of 1-1.5 t/h wood pellet plant in Japan

The main entrance of the factory area is located on the south side of the factory area, and the workshop entrances and offices are arranged on the south side of the factory area; the production workshop is located on the north side of the factory area.

Roads in the factory area are smooth, the traffic flow lines are clear, and cross interference is reduced. The site selection of this project uses the built industrial plant, so there is basically no civil engineering during the construction period.

Why build a wood pellet plant in Japan?

wood pellet making line 15 tons

Worldwide trade of wood pellets remained practically unchanged y-o-y at about 29 million tons in 2022. Despite the minimal global volume change, there were some noteworthy shifts in trade flows on a country-level basis in 2022. Asia, re presented by Japan and South Korea, has continued to grow import volumes, up from only 18% five years ago.

Demand for biomass, including wood pellets, has increased remarkably quickly in Japan, from 1.0 million tons in 2018 to 4.4 million tons in 2022. The upward trend is expected to continue, and Japan will be the fastest-growing market in the world in the next 5-10 years.

In 2022, Japan’s imports of wood pellets expanded 42% year-on-year to 4.4 million tons. The value of imports jumped 60% to $895 million. The average price of wood pellets grew 13% to $203 per tonne.

Vietnam is currently the primary pellet supplier to Japan, followed by Canada and the US. With Japanese power companies writing long-term offtake agreements with larger suppliers in North America, the most considerable pellet supply expansion in the coming years will likely be in the us and Canada.

Japanese buyers value the ability of the producer to offer contract longevity and security of certified sustainable supply.

However, in addition to importing wood pellets, at present, more and more Japanese companies have begun to invest in new wood pellet processing projects. Compared with imported pellets, the cost of their own processing is lower, and they can import cheap agricultural and forestry waste from some resource-rich countries.

It can be seen from the above that The Japanese industrial wood pellet market has a high likelihood of developing significant demand over the next decade.
