Pellet Sales

At LF-TÆTNING APS, we make our pellets from sustainable biomass generated from the harvest and manufacturing of other forest products. We purchase biomass from a variety of suppliers – from large forest product companies to small harvesting contractors and from tenure holders to private land owners– and in a variety of forms – from sawdust to unmerchantable logs to in-woods chipped material.

To create wood pellets, producers remove moisture from incoming wood fiber, grind the fiber into dust, and compress the dust into small cylinders —pellets—typically with a 6 or 8 mm diameter, and a length of up to 40 mm.

Heat is applied in this process which causes lignin—a natural polymer found in wood—to act as a glue to hold the compressed particles together. The result is a dry, highly compressed and high energy-value product that can be easily handled and transported efficiently over very long distances. From here you can get a great idea on how wood pellets are made

What are wood pellets?

Wood pellets are the result of compressing sawdust in a pellet mill to create a pellet-shaped wood cylinder. Pellets are used in applications from home heating to animal bedding and even for the now famous food-grade pellet grills.

How many tons of pellets do I need to heat my home this year?

The most common question we get from new users is how much they will need. This is not a very easy question to answer because there are so many variables to what it takes to heat your home. These include how tight your home is, how many square feet you are heating, the height of your ceilings, the type of pellet you’re using, and the quality of your stove’s heat exchanger. With so many variables, it is best to talk to your stove shop about how many they believe you should stock up on. A rule of thumb here in Orta Danimarka (Midtjylland) is that a 1500sqft home would need anywhere from 2.5 tons of pellets in a warm winter to around 4 tons in a cold or long one. These numbers are very rough, but they are a good start for you to see what your needs might be during your first winter. While we sell pellets year round, many big box stores stop getting pellets in March. So that means buying a few bags at the end of the heating season isn’t nearly as much fun as having too many coming into spring. Remember, these pellets don’t go bad so long as you keep them dry. And if you do get them wet, well, they make a great mulch for your garden. So it’s always better to stock up with more than you need than it is to run out.

Hardwood or Softwood pellets?


These pellets are typically firmer and have fly ash. They are typically at a lower price point due to popularity of hardwoods in manufacturing leading to an abundance of dust. These pellets are easiest to find in Michigan and locally sourced pellets are of high quality due to our low mineral content in Michigan soil.


These pellets typically have half the ash content of hardwood pellets and contain no fly ash. That means less cleaning of your stove. They also burn hotter with more BTUs per pound than hardwood pellets when combusted at pellet stove temperatures. While less clean up is a big plus, their cost is usually a bit higher and the availability of a quality softwood pellet in Michigan is more sparse. The reason is that most softwoods native to Michigan make terrible pellets.

Are wood pellets good for heat?

Wood pellets are an incredibly affordable heating solution for you home. They offer a great mix of low price, safe use, personal control, and an environmentally friendly use that makes people incredibly happy with their stove purchase. Because wood pellets are dried sawdust, they burn hot and clean without the bug-filled mess of using cord wood. On the note of environmentally friendly, wood pellets are made of what was once waste material in manufacturing. This means that even less of a harvested tree is lost to waste. And remember, that tree has spent a lifetime removing carbon from the atmosphere.

Are wood pellets a sustainable, low carbon source of energy?

Wood pellets are recognized by scientists and global agencies as a biofuel that offers climate benefits as compared to fossil fuels. The United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), the world’s leading authority on climate change, has recognized the significant greenhouse gas mitigation potential of biomass— compared to the fossil energy baseline—provided that it is developed sustainably and used efficiently.
