Greene Team (Green Team) wood pellet fuel pellets

Greene Team Pellet Fuel Company, LLC was founded with the goal of producing clean, renewable energy and reducing dependence on fossil fuels. The location of the production facility is in Greene County, Pennsylvania at the site of the old Robena Mine. The Robena Mine was built in the years of WWII, and was the largest, most modern coal mine of its time. In the wave of the renewable energy era, Greene Team has converted Robena from fossil fuel mining to renewable bio fuel production

Pellet quality is our number one goal at Greene Team. We receive fresh sawdust daily from local sawmills and process it into wood pellet fuel quickly. The sawdust never has had a chance to degrade prior to pelletization. This ensures the highest BTU value possible. Our state of the art facility allows us to produce the highest quality pellet fuel consistently. We have an in house lab and test finished product every ½ hour to maintain quality control. All pellets are screened 3 times prior to bagging to eliminate fines in the bag.

  • Bulk Density (lbs/cubic foot): 40 - 46
  • Diameter (inches): 0.250 to 0.285
  • Fines % (at the mill gate): < 0.5
  • Inorganic Ash %: 0 - 1
  • Length (% greater than 1.5 inches): < 1
  • Moisture %: <= 8
  • BTUs: > 8000

  • Admin Review: August - 2017 - Looking forward to burning some this year!! I always thought these were great pellets.
    Sept - 2017 - Well I have had a few cold nights with these and as usual they are a great pellets. Robbie down there in PA keeps me updated on the shipments headed to Lowes and such for purchase. He mailed me out a bag this year and I loved burning them! A great hardwood pellet! I like how dense they are and the sound they make when hitting the hopper. Thanks Robbie! Also, these were the first pellets I ever bought for my first stove back 8 years or so now! Great then and great now.

    Hello Rob,
    Just wanted to say "Thank You" for making quality pellets! I have been burning all different brands for 7 years now, and your Green Team pellets are by far the best! They burn exactly as you claim, which is rare. So keep up the good work, and produce more! I have had a hard time getting them. Always sold out! Would it be possible for you to contact Agway in Grove City, PA in reference to having your brand on stock? Would save me a long drive to get them elsewhere. Once again, love your pellets and keep them coming!
    Sincerely,
    Peggy Sue Plaisted

    I bought 2 1/2 tons this year and was impressed. Good heat and clean burn. I have a Harmon P43 and clean the burn pot and glass every day and find it very easy. I also do a major cleaning once a month.

    I would have more impressed had they not burned very fast compared to other pellets I have used.

    I would use them again if the price was right. Compared to comparable pellets I feel Lowes pricing was a bit too high at $280.00 per ton and no volume discount.

    I have a breckwell stove and have been burning pellets for approx. 6 years. I purchased 4 tons of Green Team Platinum pellets from Lowes. These are the worst pellets I have ever used. The stove glass gets extremely sooty and I have to clean the fire pot every other day as they don't completely burn. I used Green Supreme last year and they were far better than these.

    This is the 2nd winter burning Greene Team pellets in my Quadrafire Mt. Vernon AE. I have been very satisfied with these pellets. They give off a lot of heat and I don't see much different in the ash I get from it than I have other pellets I've burned; Corinth, Athens, Northeast (all from Maine). These pellets are made in Penn. I purchased mine from Lowes. I have read that a hardwood pellet does leave more ash than a softwood but I haven't burned a softwood pellet, only these hardwood, the others were a blend of hard and soft.

    I purchase 10 tons of Greene Team Premium pellets from Lowes in November. 5 tons for me and 5 for my father's house. I was told by the sale person that these were the best pellets available and worth the extra $40/ ton. Its the last time I believe anything a salesperson at Lowes tells me. They have been a night mare. I have a top of the line Harman XXV and prior to this year, I have always burned New England or Barefoot brand pellets and never had any issues. Once I started burning Greene Team Pellets, my glass got full of soot daily, the pellets never burn completely and I am having to clean my stove and empty my ash pan every other day instead of once a week. These are the worst pellets on the market and I am sorry I ever purchased them. Unfortunately, I still have a lot of them left and have no choice but to deal with it. I would advise anyone against this brand. First time in my life I felt compelled enough to inform others to stay away from a product. I would hate for anyone else to go through what I have had to endure with this brand of pellet.

    great greene "platinum" pellets. purchased at Lowes for $5.59/bag. very expensive but best pellets ive bought this year. burned in a new drolet eco 45 stove. almost no ash and the heat seems better than average. looking to find a better price/supplier. i like the cheat river hardwood from lowes, and the PA pellets from HEP north main lumber @ $479-$4.99/bag as well, however they seem to produce more ash. the ash in all the 3 described brands is better than hardwood softwood blends, nut the few bags of Greene pellets bought yesterday are very clean. i think the there has been some quality control issues with every brand ive purchased this year because sometimes the difference is with the same brand between bags. storage probably has to do with it. manufacturers supply saw dust too. ill have to check moisture content sometime.

    I have burned various wood pellets for over 15 years. I have a Harmon Accentra Cast Iron Pellet Stove. Last year I purchased 2 tons of Greene Team Pellets at Lowes. The claim is that these are 100% hardwood pellets but I find this hard to believe. These pellets are by far the dirtiest pellets I have ever used. I clean my burn chamber every 2- 3 days and there is so much buildup there I have to use a hammer and screwdriver to break it up before I can begin to scrape the chamber.

    Best pellets this year. Purchased a ton of these at Lowes this year. Great price, clean burn. We have a 3 year old Harmon Accentra insert which we clean thoroughly weekly and professionally on an annual basis. Compared to the Spruce pointe that I paid a third more for they are super stars!
