Know more about home made pellet fuel

If you are heating with pellet fuel, or are considering switching, making your own pellet fuel may save you money and hassle. With the popularity of pellet stoves outpacing the commercial production of fuel, finding pellet fuel can be difficult, especially during colder months. The raw materials for pellet fuel are cheap and easy to attain. With the right equipment, you can convert such biomass materials as sawdust, wood chips, corn, grass clippings and leaves into renewable, clean-burning fuel. Pellet fuel production also makes a great small business for those with the tools and know-how.

Raw Materials

  • Though pellet fuel is primarily made from hardwood or softwood, you can use other biomass materials such as wheat or barley straw, corn cobs, shelled corn, fruit pits, various grasses, even paper or cardboard. The raw materials you choose depend upon availability and your stove or furnace type. Some stoves burn only premium grade wood pellets (made mostly from hardwoods with no bark), which produce no more than 1% ash. Others are designed to burn corn only, while others are multi-fuel, which burn a variety of fuels, including premium and standard grade wood, corn and other types of biomass pellets.


  • The main equipment needed for homemade pellet fuel is a pellet mill. Pellet mills take your raw materials and press them through dies into pellet form. For personal use, pellet mills are available in capacities ranging from 65 to 600 pounds per hour, with prices starting at around $2,600, according to Mill Product News.

    If you're using large raw materials, such as wood chips or wood pieces, you will need to reduce them in size to particles no larger than ¼" before running them through your pellet mill. This helps with the drying process and makes the particles the right size for forming into pellets. For small particle biomass, such as sawdust, no reduction is required. Reduction equipment, such as hammer mills, are available for personal use. For agricultural materials, such as grass and straw, a bale buster is needed to reduce your materials to proper size.

    Other equipment you may need include a dryer, for proper moisture content; a cooler to cool processed pellets; and possibly a bagger, especially if you're producing larger quantities for local sale.

  • If you're using wood for your raw materials, you need no extra binding agents. Wood contains a natural binding agent called lignin, which holds the pellets together. Steam and pressure also is used to aid in binding. The need for binding agents will vary depending upon the raw materials used.
