Proxipel was created to meet the growing demand for pellets and the shortage of economically mobilizable biomass. It consists of installing a complete pellet production chain on a trailer train. Proxipel units can thus move in order to granulate the biomass available in small and large volumes in situ. Proxipel units are able to transform many types of wet biomass into high quality pellets (ISO 17225), including wood. The technical innovation lies mainly in the system integration, the optimisation and the patented dryer that make Proxipel the only complete biomass pelletizing plant in the world.
