Wood Pellet Production
The picture below shows mature rubber trees which have ceased to give Latex. These trees now become the raw material for energy wood pellets. The sawdusting, compacting & pelletizing equipment is located close to the site of the raw material to keep logistics at a minimum & to ensure the quality of the pellets is maintained to its highest degree.
The economic life of a rubber tree is approximately 13-14 years. The first 5 years there is no Latex & years 6-13/14 is the collection period of Latex. We use only wood in its 13 or 14th year. Rubber trees are planted every year so this means that for every 13 year old tree there is 12 years of planting behind it. Very sustainable & very renewable!!
