Wood chips as a fuel

Dried Secolin wood chips

High-energy fuel

As a specialist in drying various materials, Axpo Tegra produces high-quality wood chips for powering wood chip plants – for its own use and for sale to third parties – in the largest biomass power plant in Switzerland. With our modern belt drying systems, the fuel wood chips are dried in an eco-friendly way, using the waste heat produced by the wood-fired power plant. The high-energy fuel produced in this way is sieved for a wide variety of applications.

Our range of fuel wood chips is geared mainly towards local district heating networks, municipalities, energy companies, energy traders and industrial companies with wood chip burning facilities.

You can enjoy the following benefits:

  • Efficient energy storage, as the energy content of dried wood is up to 60% higher
  • Greater efficiency for local wood chip burning systems
  • Lower investment costs for new wood chip burning systems and therefore greater economic efficiency
  • Low vapour
  • Fewer emissions thanks to better incineration
  • Compliance with the clean air ordinance is ensured
