The Paper Pellet Press
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences / Environmental Innovation
City:Yarmouth, NS
School:Yarmouth Junior High School
Abstract:Recent shortages in wood stove pellets, and decreased markets for discarded paper raised the question; can discarded paper be made into wood stove pellets? This project looked at the potential of making wood stove pellets out of discarded paper. Pellets were created out of paper mulch, which were then pressed through a home designed pellet press. Discarded paper can be converted to paper pellets.
