Remanufactured pressing machines make wood pellets from residual materials like sawdust, bamboo and wood residues.

Dutch Milling Technology remanufactures wood pressing machines in order to give them a second life.

These very affordable machines make wood pellets from residual materials like sawdust and wood residues.

Their partner in Vietnam produces 4,000 kg wood pellets in one hour. Ten hours means 40,000 kg pellets a day! 

Because wood pellets are a highly efficient, energy source, Dutch Milling Technology developed – together with their Vietnamese partner – a wood pellet-fired cooking stove for all the people who want to cook clean and safe.

As you know, burning wood smells awful, the CO2 in the air is increasing every year and millions of children get killed as a result of firewood smoke fumes.

Not with this wood pellet cooking stove. It’s a clean, safe, efficient and even a cheaper solution than using coal.

Cheap, healthy and climate proof

Dutch Milling Technology are tackling this issue through the use of more fuel-efficient pellet stoves, which are both affordable and easy to use; cutting the amount of diseases and allowing more trees the opportunity to grow.

  • Wood pellets are 15% cheaper than coal
    the end-user price for wood pellets is approximately € 0.16 / 1kg (about 2.6 cents / kWh)
  • And … Because the Vietnamese people don’t have to burn their wood residues anymore, this cooking stove fired with wood pellets is decreasing country’s greenhouse gasses significantly.

Prices are getting down for mass consumption

The price of the wood pellet-fired stove is around $ 30, with 1 year warranty. 0.5 kg of wood pellets is required for 1 hour cooking (based on a calorific value of ca.4900 kcal / kg of wood pellets)
