coconut shell pellet mill

Coconut shell or coconut husk is a good source for pellets fuel making. It is the by-product of coconut processing. Previously, coconut shell is often used to make household items for decoration; while its fiber, coir, is used for making rope or matting.

But now coconut shell can be used to produce fuel pellets because mature coconut fiber contains lignin, which is the most important component that makes it suitable for pelletizing. Besides, coconut shell also has relatively high calorific value (heat value). (If you want to produce coconut shell charcoal briquette, please click here.)

Advantages of coconut shell pellets

From the above we can see coconut shell pellets have high calorific value, which is almost the same with coal (7000kcal/kg). Therefore, for major coconut planting countries like Indonesia, Philippines, India, Brazil, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Thailand, Tanzania and Ghana, etc., coconut shell pellets are good renewable and environmental friendly fuel sources.
