Vecoplan wood waste grinders are used for wood recycling to produce boiler fuel, animal bedding, mulch, and material for the production of particleboard or other composite materials such as wood/plastic decking. In today’s environmentally conscious world, a Vecoplan wood grinder can be used to expedite the composting process or to prepare wood and other biomass for conversion to alternative fuels including pellets, cellulosic ethanol, and other second-generation biofuels.



Wood Grinders For All Types Of Wood Waste 

Green wood or dry wood, large scrap or small scrap, hardwoods or softwoods, solid or composites, Vecoplan grinders handle all types of waste wood for wood recycling. For general scrap, of mixed shapes and sizes, Vecoplan offers their VAZ grinder series. VAZ grinders are fed vertically via a large hopper positioned above the cutting chamber. Vecoplan also offers their VTH series of horizontally fed grinders for lineal wood scrap. Perfect for edge rippings, slabs, mouldings, profiles, flooring, or any long wood, VTH horizontal wood grinders are fed by a vibratory conveyor that comes standard with the machine.

  • Sawmill Scrap

    VOC Emmissions, fire codes, and government standards have become much more stringent in the past few years, resulting in added expense in the form of spark detectors and fire suppression systems for pneumatic discharge systems typically associated with hammermills or other traditional wood waste size reduction equipment. Vecoplan VVZ and VNZ wood grinders offer the ideal solution for that.

  • Biomass Energy

    Biomass systems from Vecoplan process and prepare all types of lignocellulosic biomass to be used as a feedstock for the production of fuel. Biomass refers to all organic matter, or in other words, the material that all plants and animals, living or dead, are made-up of. Lignocellulose, composed of cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin, is the technical term for plant matter. Since plants live and grow they are, by nature, a renewable resource. Wood has been, and continues to be, the most common type of renewable biomass utilized as biomass waste and biomass pellets fuel, but virtually all biomass can be used to generate energy. Vecoplan's mechanical preparation systems maximize the effective and efficient reclamation of energy from any lignocellulosic biomass feedstock with the creation of biomass pellets, biomass biofuels and biomass pellets from a biomass pelletizer making machine.
