How to Make Sunflower Husk Pellets for Home Use

Sunflower husks are the shells left over after the seeds are removed from the sunflower fruit. These husks are a common by-product of sunflower seed processing industries. As sunflowers are grown widely, there’s a lot of these husks available each year. Traditionally, they were often discarded or burned, but now they have a new purpose.

With advances in biomass pelletizing technology, sunflower husks have become a great material for making biofuel pellets. They are mostly made of cellulose, which is a type of carbon-based material that burns with high heat. Plus, sunflower husks are naturally very dry, often with a moisture content of just 8-10%, perfect for making pellets.

But before you can make pellets, you need to crush the husks into smaller pieces. A small wood hammer mill can do this job easily. Once crushed, the husks are ready for pelletizing. Since sunflower husks are soft, they’re easy for a biomass pellet machine to compress into dense, fuel-efficient pellets.

Once the sunflower husk pellets have cooled, you can store them in bags for future use. These pellets, pressed by a biomass pellet machine, are denser and burn for longer in a pellet stove. Their uniform size and shape allow for more efficient burning, resulting in minimal smoke. With their low price and high efficiency, sunflower husk pellets offer a clean and cozy alternative for biomass energy.

We specialize in biomass pelletizing technology, and our company designs and manufactures new-type biomass pellet plants that are highly effective for processing sunflower husk pellets.
