Ausloos explains: Packing wood pellets
Packing wood pellets is done as efficiently and budget friendly as possible. What is the best option and what trends can we possibly expect? Ausloos is happy to explain this to you.
Wood pellets is a product that is relatively cheap per kilo. The costs of the packaging are logically correspondingly high. We achieve this by choosing the right packaging that is processed quickly and is of reliable quality.
PE bags made of flat film are the most commonly used and suitable packaging for wood pellets. The flat film consists of several layers, so that the contents are well protected and arrive at the customer undamaged. Thanks to the flat film technology, which allows the use of multilayer film, the result is very strong and interesting in terms of price, because the packaging weight per bag is low.
When you want to pack wood pellets, you ultimately focus on the end user: the consumer who takes your bag home to make his pellet stove burn at home. Your bag of wood pellets should therefore stand out in the shop shelves. Flat film is also the ideal packaging for this: the material can be printed very nicely and can have transparent surfaces, making the product clearly visible. The consumer likes to see what he or she buys.

How will wood pellets be packaged in the future?
We don’t have a crystal ball, but we do think about possible trends that the future has in store for us. We all notice that the ecological aspect is becoming increasingly important in our society. And that also has consequences for our packaging.
In that case, bioplastic is a possibility. Or paper packaging for wood pellets. This paper must then be coated to be waterproof. And that would certainly cost more than flat film nowadays and is perhaps not even more environmentally friendly now. Will plastic packaging be disadvantaged in the future compared to paper? The future will tell. To be continued.
