Burn Pellets You Manufacture

The crown of Total Energy Group’s booth this year is the TEG Pellet Mill, which pelletizes lot of materials, including sawdust, woodchips, straw, grass and manure, for use as alternative fuels. Peter Stuyt (pictured left, with Total Energy Group's Gregory Gawne) tells me the equpment can be used with trash and construction wood and green clippings.

The pellets are 15 times denser than wood and the BTU levels the pellets pack allow users to create different recipes to make a standard pellet. The up front investment is sizeable, but savings can total 40 to 45 percent on fuel. Total Energy Group offers five-year financing and Stuyt says ROI on the equipment can be achieved within that timeframe.
