Wood Pellets Manufacturer, Wood Pellet Fuel, Pres-to-Logs
With more than 30 years in the wood pellet industry, Lignetics is one of the founding pioneers of manufacturing premium wood pellets and Pres-to-Logs® (presto logs) fire logs for home heating. We recognize the need for a domestic source of heating fuel and believe that Lignetics wood pellets and Pres-to-Logs® fire log fuel is the best source available today.
Lignetics wood pellets and Pres-to-Logs® (presto logs) fire logs are 100% renewable and are generated from recycled sawdust at lumber and flooring manufacturing facilities that could otherwise be destined for landfills. Only all-natural materials are used in the production of Lignetics wood pellets and Pres-to-Logs® (presto logs) fire logs, ensuring a clean and safe burn.
Lignetics wood pellets and fire logs are a carbon neutral form of biomass fuel. Our products burn hot enough to reduce emissions to 1.2 grams per hour when burned in an EPA-certified wood burning appliance. This falls well below the nationwide EPA regulation of less than 7.5 grams per hour and makes our wood pellets and fire logs the cleanest and most efficient forms of biomass fuel available today.
Lignetics’ state-of-the-art production facilities use the latest technology to ensure a consistent, even-burning wood pellet and fire log. Our trained operators constantly monitor the quality and grade of all our products. Our quality control department ensures production of wood pellets and fire logs with very low moisture content, resulting in greater BTU output and less than one percent ash. The results of our efficient quality control are what sets our wood pellet and fire log grade at premium. Since all Lignetics premium wood pellets and fire logs are kiln dried to specific moisture content, they burn hotter and cleaner than many other brands, making our wood pellets and Pres-to-Logs (presto logs) fire logs two of the most efficient forms of renewable biomass fuel. When compared to other fuels the choice becomes clear.
Lignetics premium wood pellet fuel and Pres-to-Logs® fire logs, combined with fire starters, are safe, efficient and easy to use. Lignetics wood pellets, fire logs and fire starters light quickly, burn hot and are one of the best choices for heating available today.
