Wood pellets from timber scraps at Kloboucká lesní

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.

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.
