In 2012, the equipment for the production of agricultural biomass pellets was installed in the newly built plant in Zrenjanin, while the continuous production of agro-pellets began in mid-2013. Agro-pellet is a product obtained by pressing biomass under high pressure, without adding any binding agents, and with very little moisture content. Soybean, wheat and corn straw are the raw materials used in the process of pellet production. In addition to saving energy, pellets are an environmentally-friendly energy source intended for a wide variety of purposes, from fuelling household furnaces and fireplaces, to powering large power plants.
