Assessment of the influencing and reduction potential on off-gassing of pellets during storage to increase storage security

Wood pellets may release various component during transportation and storage. Thus, relatively high concentrations of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), various volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and methane (CH4) may occur in pellet storages....
