Answer: Pellets are made by compressing the waste materials. The process of compression drains the moisture out of the pellets. It brings down their moisture content to below 8 percent. Wood has moisture content of almost 20 %. As a result pellets can produce much more heat than wood. The driers the fuel, the more efficient it is.
