Biomass Pellets Become the Future Trend
     In 2020, the Organizing Committee of the Lausanne Youth Olympic Games announced that the main Olympic torch,

which will be built on June 17, 2019, will use the environmentally friendly fuel, Swiss wood pellets, as fuel in the

history of the Olympic Games.

     Following the igniting ceremony in Athens, Greece, the Olympic flame will cross Switzerland and ignite the main

torch at the opening ceremony of the 3rd Winter Youth Olympic Games in Lausanne, Switzerland on January 9, 2020.

This is the first time in the history of the Olympic Games to use wood pellets as a fuel for the Olympic flame, and it

is also in line with the commitment of the Lausanne 2020 Youth Olympics to sustainable development.

     This will be the result of an unprecedented partnership between several organizations in the region that are

building a unique value chain, from design to burner completion. Lignum Vaud is the regional action community of the

Swiss timber economy of Lignum. It brings together all regional stakeholders from the timber sector and leads the

design and manufacture of burners, which are the core components of the Olympic torch.

     This is its most striking feature: the only fuel used will be wood pellets from Switzerland, the first in the history of

the Olympics, a sustainable solution and an opportunity to promote local knowledge and technology.

     Biomass pellet processing equipment is suitable for a wide range of raw materials, including dried plant waste

such as sawdust, rice husks, and straw. At present, with the rising prices of traditional fossil fuels such as coal and oil,

many manufacturers have converted boilers into biomass boilers to reduce costs and meet environmental standards.

The subsidies for local policy support are very substantial, so biomass pellet fuels have high commercial value.

In addition to environmental protection in line with national policy support and boiler renovation, there are many wood

mills, rice mills, furniture mills, straw recycling plants, etc. These manufacturers have many raw materials, usually

there are many problems in the storage of raw materials, and these wastes are passed through biomass pellets.

The processing equipment is compressed into pellets, which reduces storage space and is easy to transport.

Transforming biomass waste into energy can not only create a booming biomass fuel market, but also create

a thriving organic fertilizer market that can be used domestically or exported to overseas countries.

     The biomass pellets produced by Yongli Machinery's biomass pelletizing equipment have a large specific

gravity, small volume, resistance to combustion, and easy storage and transportation. Biomass pellet fuel does

not contain chemical substances such as fission, explosion, etc. due to natural fertilizers and biomass materials.

It does not cause accidents such as poisoning, explosion, leakage, etc., and has higher safety.
