Put Your Money to Good Use, Invest in Production of Wood Pellets

Global Green Energy, LLC in Birmingham, Alabama, develops wood pellet production facilities. Wood pellets are alternative fuels that help lower greenhouse gas emissions. With more than 60 years of our founders' combined experience, we have created factories that provide quality wood pellets for use as an energy source.


In the Beginning

During the oil crisis of 1973, wood pellet production in Europe and North America started as an alternative energy source to oil. Wood pellets have attracted a lot of attention because of their high-quality, low-cost, and domestic availability. As the price of oil declined, the price of wood pellets rose relatively and because of that the use of wood pellets decreased for a time.

The Return

In the 1990s, wood pellet consumption began to recover because many countries encouraged the use of renewable energy sources and zero carbon dioxide emissions to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. With the affordability of wood pellets, there is a significant growth in demand to use them as alternative energy. The increase in geopolitical tensions and rising energy costs over the last 10 years has emphasized the focus on national energy security and cost control.


A ton of wood pellets is equal to 15.56 MMbtu while one barrel of oil (light sweet crude) is only 5.18 MMbtu. This simply shows that more energy is produced using wood pellets. Aside from being cost-effective, pellets are both clean and environmentally "green" making them a direct price competitor with kerosene and natural gas in countries outside Western Europe. The demand for wood pellets is steadily increasing because of these inherent advantages.

Process of Production

We produce wood pellets using state-of-the-art equipment that is used by more than 100 manufacturing facilities in the U.S. and Western Europe. The basic process that we go through starts with collecting the green wood chips and drying them. This is soon followed with granulating them to powder. This powder is then formed into energy-efficient pellets.
