The Energy Source

Sources of pellet raw material Sources of raw material for wood pellet manufacture are varied. In countries such as Sweden, the USA and Canada, which produce pellets on a large scale, feedstock for wood pellets comes mainly from the mountains of sawdust that would otherwise accumulate next to their numerous huge sawmills. In the UK, where there is less forest, some pellets are imported, although many are made from local sawmill or joinery waste material.
