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.

    My Problem is with Lowes, I really like the pellets but my local Lowes never stocks enough. Plus they charge 5.49 per bag.

    HI an up date from green team, i called the factory again and talked to one of the owners and i told him about my problem with the pellets and he sent me a box to send a bag back and paid the shipping and a check for 6 bucks to cover the cost of a bag he told me that he had no idea about the problem and he then looked at this web site and had a reason for asking for a bag of them form me, he is going to get back to me with some answers when hes does ill post them on this site. evry one who has problems with any pellet should call the company and tell them about this problem,
    And last but not least i called lowes and told them about my problem and they came and picket up the rest of the pellets at no charge to me Lowes is a great place to do businees with, I hope i was not to long winded with this note ,

    I used 4 tons for the 2012-2013 winter season. The heat level seemed OK, but the ash pan had to be emptied much more often than usual. The worst thing was the awful black soot buildup in the stove and all over the glass. Terrible mess for every cleaning and I paid $1,020 for the 4 tons.

    Tried Greene Team from Lowes for the first and last time. They leave more ash than any of the other pellets that I have ever burned. I would say about three days worth compared to other pellets. I am burning in an old Vermont Castings Reliance, which has been working well for the past 22 years.

    I tried 4 bags of these last week. Really cold out and the pellet was just ok. Not a ton of heat but adequate. I did not notice an excessive amount of ash or soot, so that was fine. The problem for me was the price. Not outragous but over $5 a bag and $250 per ton, I would go with the Maine Woods.

    an up date on these pellets, got in to really burning these and the more i burned, the worse the carbon build up, had to shut down stove to clean fire pot ever day, these may be ok in the fall of the year to burn but not whne it gets real cold out side, as i cant depend on them not to clog up my fire pot and not restart when i am not home. byer beware try a few bags.

    I used Greene Team from Lowe's all last year and they were great.

    Sorry
    They suck this year though. I got them from the same Lowe's and the Late 2012 batch is just horrible. Ash everywhere, have to clean the burn pot basically every day. Fines are evident the moment they ignite. This was *not* the case last year. In fact it was the complete opposite.

    GREENE (with an E on the end) TEAM pellets from Lowes, I have 2 tons, burned ~ 20 bags, stove shut down ! Here's situation: 1st these pellets leave an EXCESSIVE amount of carbon resin in the fire pot - need to scrap after ever 2-3 bags. 2nd: the feed through slot above the auger got clogged with a combo of fines & 'gue' that came from pellets as they warmed in the hopper / upper section of auger. What a mess and taking this appart was pita. Now... I'm runnning test with other brands of pellets, scraping the carbon and save samples - than what.. Back to Lowes with my samples ... See what happens
