header-biomass-big-2

Reliably convert varied feedstock materials into finished fiber for biomass power, pellets, and densified fuel with the most rugged and reliable grinding, milling, screening equipment and processing systems.

Industry Specific information

  • Consistent finished pellet feedstock helps ensure the production of premium quality pellets.

  • Sustainability

  • Pellets and densified fuels are examples of low cost options to help reduce coal and fossil fuel usage.

  • Woody biomass energy is a stable, reliable renewable energy that delivers major cuts in carbon emissions when compared to using coal for energy production.

Materials Processed

Feedstock materials vary greatly based on region and availability with some being simple to process while others are more difficult with unique challenges.

Rely on WSM's experience in successfully grinding, screening, and processing a wide range of materials including wood waste, wood scrap, lumber, stumps, sawmill residuals, sawdust, wood shavings, wood chips, forest residuals, woodyard residuals, used wood, and quick-growing trees from tree plantations. WSM has the expertise and equipment to get the job done.

Equipment Used

Be confident that you are getting the right machine to process your material with the most complete line of equipment available. 

There is no one machine that is right for every job. Tell us about your unique application and we'll configure the machine or system for your operation.  WSM offers Horizontal Hogs/Grinders, Vertical Hogs/Grinders, Shredders including our massive Super Shredder, Hammermills, Disc Scalping Screens, Oscillating Screens, Trommel Screens, and Vibrating Screens/Conveyors. Our dedicated engineering staff can configure a complete processing system, including complete Green Milling Islands and Dry Milling Islands.

Industry Challenges

The global demand for renewable energy sources including biomass power, pellets, and densified fuel continues to grow as the world looks for stable, sustainable energy sources to reduce coal and fossil fuel usage. The increased demand for raw feed to produce the necessary finished product means the grinding, screening, and processing machinery used in the process needs to excel at handling the diverse types of raw material available.

Fiber sourcing challenges mean you may need to process materials including woody biomass, sawmill residuals, sawdust, wood shavings, wood chips, forest residuals, used wood, and wood from short rotation forestry plantations. WSM’s approach to help you maximize the value of these varied residuals starts with configuring individual components or fully engineered, integrated systems designed specifically for either your new or existing facility with available project management. Systems can include complete green milling and dry milling islands at the largest pellet producers.
