Biofuel for boilers

The whole almond shell, as it comes out of the shelling process, is used in large heat consumers and boilers with a certain-sized feeding augur.
We offer crushed and graded almond shells for boilers with smaller augers, household appliances and small businesses such as country cottages, as well as for industries that appreciate using dust-free biofuel. This product is a substitute for wood pellets; it’s sold at a more competitive price and its composition isn’t so variable, which means a lesser need for the regulation of boilers and stoves.

The crushed and sieved shells in their different granulometries are also used in many other applications (as animal beds, for scouring or loading in different industrial processes and as excipients for numerous products, etc.).
