From this variety of pellets and various market prices its normal to ask what is the real price of pellets in 2016? On the Bulgarian market there are mainly wood and sunflower pellets. Prices for wood pellets range from 280 Levs to 370 Levs incl. VAT pellet Class A1 (Top quality pellets) and 250 lev – 270 lev pellet from sunflower.
How the price of pellet is formed?
The quality of the pellet
The first factor in the formation of the cost is the quality of the pellet. This depends on the type of raw material used. It can be clean / round wood or waste processed, agricultural biomass such as straw, sunflower launches and more.
The packaging of the pellets.
The second factor is the packaging. Most often, the pellets are packed in polyethylene bags of 15 kg., And then stacked on pallets. Pallets themselves are covered with foil – thus transport is safer. The final price of pellets is always included and the cost of bags and pallet film – usually about 20 lev price per ton of pellets.
Transport and delivery of the pellets
Third is the logistics or how to organize the supply of pellets from the factory where they are produced to the end customer. Usually this price range of around 25-30 lev per ton of pellets. It is very important to mention that the closer you are to the respective factory, the lower is the cost. There are distributors who offer free shipping, but it is a marketing gimmick because the cost of supply of pellets is calculated in the final amount you pay per tonne of pellets.
Price of pellets depending on time of delivery?
For the final customer it may seem strange but depending on when you request a supply of pellets the prices vary. Manufacturers of pellets allow a lower cost in the summer because the costs for the production of pellets are somewhat lower. Summer season is considered the period from the beginning of May until the end of August and the winter season (when the price is higher) is considered the beginning of September to the end of April.
