Fuel Wood Chips

WOOD CHIPS SUPPLY currently trading and offers different types of fuel wood chips in general from USA, Brazil, European and Asian countries. We have to supply of Biomass and Fuel Chips by good low price -75-95.00 US$/MT CIF ASWP depending of the port of destinations or by price mentioned per GJ/MT.

There are many sources of wood that can be processed into woodchip fuel and there are equally as many ways in which the wood can be harvested, processed, loaded, transported, and received—all of which can impact the overall quality of the woodchip as a fuel. Important characteristics of wood fuel are energy content; moisture content; chip shape, size, and uniformity; ash content; and the presence of dirt and other debris. (For definitions of each of these terms, please see the glossary at the end of this document.) TYPES. There are four main types of woodchip fuel: paper chips, bole chips, whole-tree chips, and urban-derived wood fuel, in order from highest to lowest quality. Each differs on important characteristics like ash content, uniformity, and the absence of dirt and debris.

Outlined here are the technical specifics for four main woodchip heating fuel sources labeled Grades A through D in order of quality:

  • Grade A. Paper-grade chip (high quality)
  • Grade B. Bole chip (medium quality)
  • Grade C. Whole-tree chips (low quality)
  • Grade D. Urban-derived wood fuel (lowest quality)

Theoretical calculation of caloric value

To calculate the caloric value (MJ per kg) of wood with specific water content (M %) the following formula can be used:

During seasoning, the 10 percent decrease in moisture entails an approximate 0.6 kWh per kg (2.16 MJ per kg) increase in energy content.

For practical purposes the following average values are used for wood fuels:

  • NCV0 = 18.5 MJ/kg = 5.14 kWh/kg OVEN-DRY WOOD (M 0%)
  • NCV10 = 17.0 MJ/kg = 4.7 kWh/kg PELLETS (M 10%)
  • NCV20 = 14.4 MJ/kg = 4.0 kWh/kg FIREWOOD (M 20%)
  • NCV30 = 12.2 MJ/kg = 3.4 kWh/kg WOOD CHIPS (M 30%)
