Transportation and Handling

Since torrefied wood pellets have a higher energy density than wood pellets, torrefied pellets are more economical to transport than units of green wood or wood pellets with similar total energy content.  Torrefied pellets are also more durable than green wood or wood pellets because they are moisture resistant and can be stored uncovered, similar to coal.  Thus, when compared to green wood or wood pellets, torrefied wood can be transported cheaper, farther and with less environmental impact from transportation operations.
