1-2 T/H Sawdust Wood Pellet Production Line in Italy

Origin of the 1-2 t/h sawdust wood pellet production line in Italy

Italy is a net importer of wood pellets. Wood pellets are mainly imported from countries such as Germany, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovenia, Croatia, Poland, Lithuania, Romania, France, Russia, Czech Republic, Slovakia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Latvia, Estonia and Egypt.

1-2 T/H Sawdust Wood Pellet Production Line in Italy

Wood pellets in Italy are mainly used for heating small-scale private homes and industrial boilers. Around 96% of Italian pellet consumption comes from these heating industries, with the majority of pellets delivered in bags.

Bulk pellets up to 20,000 tons are transported by silo trucks. The report pointed out that its domestic production can only meet less than 30% of domestic pellet demand, and more than 70% of wood pellets need to be met through imports.

If there is demand, there must be a market. Currently, more and more Italian investors are interested in entering the wood pellet processing industry. Especially those industries related to wood pellet processing, such as furniture factories, sawdust factories, wood chip factories, etc.

These investors with raw material resources have also noticed the field of wood pellet processing and regarded wood pellet processing as a new business for their expansion.

The client of this 1-2 t/h sawdust pellet production line project is a furniture factory from Italy, which has abundant raw materials. In order to make full use of these processing residues and expand business channels, the Italian customer decided to invest US$80,000 to build this "annual biomass pellet fuel processing project of 4,500 tons." It is worth mentioning that this customer is an old friend of RICHI. Because in 2021, the customer purchased a wood chip dryer from RICHI to dry the wood scraps from the furniture factory, and then sell these wood chips and sawdust.

  • Project area: The factory covers an area of 350m2, which is construction land
  • Project investment: 80,000 USD
  • Raw materials: pure sawdust
  • Construction period: 1 month
  • Annual power consumption: 50,000 kWh, powered by the local power grid
  • Labor capacity: 5 people
  • Working system: Production implements an 8-hour day shift system, no production at night, and annual working hours are 300 days

Process design of 1-2 t/h sawdust wood pellet production line in Italy

Brief description of process flow:

  1. Unloading:
    The raw and auxiliary materials used by the company are mainly sawdust, which comes from the customer's furniture factory. The crushing degree and dryness are both qualified. No further crushing and drying are required.
    The moisture content of the sawdust is 6%-12%. In between, the particle size is about 3mm-20mm. The sawdust is directly placed in the factory building, and unloading is completed in a closed workshop.
  2. Granulation:
    The raw materials are lifted by the belt conveyor, sealed and transported to the warehouse to be granulated, and then formed in the wood pellet mill. No additives are required during the granulation process.
    The raw materials enter the wood granulator from the granulator bin. Through electric heating, the temperature of the powder can reach 80°C to 90°C.
    The extruded pellet fuel is continuously squeezed out to the outer end of the die hole, and the cutter cuts the molded pellets into required pieces. length, the final formed granules flow out of the sawdust pellet press and fall into the product conveyor.
  3. Screening and warehousing:
    The cooled sawdust pellets enter the rotary grading screen. The sawdust pellets that meet the requirements enter the finished product bin through the conveyor.
    The sawdust pellets that do not meet the requirements fall into the lower layer of the screen and are discharged before entering the finished product bin, reused in the granulation process.
    Qualified sawdust pellets fall into the finished product bin. The bottom of the finished product bin is a funnel-shaped outlet, which is pneumatically discharged.
    The finished product can be directly dropped into the packaging bag, and can be sold after being packed with a baler. The formed sawdust pellets have been pressed and compacted, and basically no dust is generated during the bagging process.

Layout: The factory area of this 1-2 t/h sawdust wood pellet production line in Italy project covers an area of 3000m2. The entrance and exit are located on the west side of the factory area, close to the road. The production workshop is located on the east side of the factory area, and the warehouse is located on the north side of the workshop.

Main polluting processes and environmental protection measures

In response to the above pollution, the environmental protection measures adopted by this 1-2 t/h sawdust wood pellet production line in Italy project are as follows:

Pollution source Pollutants Governance facilities Acceptance metrics
Exhaust gas Granulation and screening process Organized particulate matter Gas collecting hood + 1 bag dust collector + 1 15m exhaust tube ≤120mg/m3, ≤3.5kg/h
Exhaust gas and unloading and conveying processes are not collected in the granulation and screening processes. Unorganized particulate matter Work in a closed workshop, the factory roads and workshop floors are hardened; a closed belt conveyor is used for feeding Factory boundary≤1.0mg/m3
Wastewater Domestic sewage COD, SS, NH3-N Mainly used for dust suppression in factory areas. Do not row outside
Noise Equipment noise LA Basic vibration reduction, noise reduction, factory sound insulation ≤60dB(A) during the day (no production at night)
Solid waste Production Defective products, dust Centralized collection and reuse in granulation process  
Staff life Domestic waste Environmental sanitation department disposal Do not row outside

How to build sawdust wood pellet production line in Italy?


Italy wood pellet production line Investment

Your funds and budget are the first things to consider in your sawdust pellet production line in Italy construction. Your budget tends to tell the scale of the wood pellet line regarding large size or small scale. In case you do not have sufficient funds, then consider lowering your capacity.

Consequently, you can get even lower some relatively unimportant equipment. However, in cutting cost, it is never advisable to substitute the necessary equipment with low price and low-quality ones. You might end up regretting the move.
