Pellets is an alternative biofuel obtained by pressing dried and crushed sunflower husks. Flowability of pellets allows automating their burning in both household and industrial boilers – pellets are poured into the fuel hopper and stoked to the boiler with the help of a screw feed. Consequently, the boiler is able to work without refueling for several days until the fuel hopper is empty.
