Green woodchips are used to generate heat energy (steam) and electric energy for freezers (poultry and swine slaughterhouses), cellulose and paper industries, food industries in general such as soybean oil, sausages, grain drying, animal food industry, margarines, breaded products, pasta, etc.
Dry woodchips come from dry wood processing and are used to generate heat and electric energy, as well as green woodchips.
Wood shavings are used in aviary beds and after that are sent to the tiltages in order to be used as organic compost in several cultures.
They are separated and used as door cores.
Pine bark is used as compost and substrate for ornamental plants cultivation and/or seedlings to be reforested and to generate steam for the kiln dryers.
Wood dust is used for ceramics, for burnt clay in the tile and brick manufacturing process due to its high heat power (3.850 kcal/kg) and easy combustion (explosion).
