They are great because they contain little moisture – less than 12%, compared to the actual palm fibre which contains 50-60% moisture. The little percentage of moisture means that the pellets will weigh less, additionally saving on transportation costs. The volatile material inside of EFB pellets is around 75%, which results in releasing a lot of heat energy, or to be exact 4000kcal/kg.

If you set your own EFB pellet making plant, you will be able to take control of the production process yourself, save money, make money, and have heating supplies for the winter. If you have access to palm fibre, or in fact, any other wood leftover material which you can use to make pellets, then you should definitely set things into motion.

The first step in the production is crushing and grinding the materials which you are going to use, in this case the palm fibre. The ground material is then sent to the mill where it is going to be compressed to a pellet with high density. When the pellets come out of the mill, they would need to be left to cool down for some time, and after that you can begin with the packaging in bags of your choice.
