Wood pellet is the most common type of pellet fuel, which is made from compressed sawdust and related wastes from manufacture of wood products & furniture, milling of lumber, and construction. Other industrial waste sources used are empty fruit bunches, diseased & insect-killed trees, coconut shells, palm kernel shells, and discarded tree tops & branches during logging operations. Its usage has increased owing to reduction in carbon emissions and growing concerns over compliance with stringent government norms.
