Coating that effectively prevents wood pellets from water damage

Wood pellets are formed from sawdust or other ground woody components that are used as a renewable energy source. Wood production has changed, according to the IEA*, from 6-7 Mt (2006); 14.3 Mt (2010) to 26 Mt (2015).

There are very defined classifications (ISO 17225-2) on pellet sizes, weights, and moisture content. One of the physical challenges with wood pellets is that in contact with water they fall apart very quickly. We would like to announce that using an ultra thin coating we can make these pellets water repellent.
