Wood pellets from timber scraps at Kloboucká lesní

Success Stories 22. May 2023

Sustainable forestry is exemplary practiced in Brumov-Bylnice, Czech Republic. During the production of glued laminated timber, larger quantities of residual wood are regularly generated, which are first pre-shredded to a homogeneous chip size using a WEIMA WLK 1500 single-shaft shredder. Subsequently, Kloboucká lesní produces high-quality pellets for heat generation, which they distribute themselves – an additional income source that is also sustainable for the environment.


Since its founding in East Moravia in 1998, Kloboucká lesní s.r.o. has been combining traditional woodworking methods with new technology and possibilities. The company has been committed to sustainable logging and processing of wood for over two decades. To this end, the use of environmentally friendly production methods is preferred.

90 kW

In collaboration with WEIMA dealer Expimex, a WEIMA WLK 1500 single-shaft shredder was recently installed. The powerful shredder is equipped with a 90 kW motor and efficiently shreds residual wood from production on a width of 1,500 mm. Filling is done via a conveyor belt directly connected to production. Large volumes of wood waste can also be added to a vibrating feeder table using a front loader.
