Pellets Unit

BrasPine & Braslumber, the largest producer of pine moldings in Brazil, begins the production of wood pellets.

Our pellets will be produced from the by-products generated in the production process, guaranteeing the quality and availability of material for production. 

Our own pellet brand is Pyromax, which comes from the Greek pyro (fire) + max (maximum), bearing in its name the concept of energy efficiency.

Product

Renewable biofuel, which can replace fossil fuels such as LPG and diesel, made from sawdust and wood chips.

Extremely dense and with a low humidity index, which favors being consumed or burned with high efficiency, generating much less pollution than firewood, for example, since they do not produce smoke or smell.
