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.

    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!

    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.
