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.

    We love the Greene Team Platinum pellets! We've used two other brands over the last 10 years and these are by far our favorites. They burn hot, have low fines and low ash. Our first year with them, we immediately noticed a difference, and in our year (last winter) the quality stayed consistent. We've awaiting delivery on this year's pellets. Our stove is a 10 yr old St. Croix Preston XL (I think).

    We get them from Lowes, but beware: not every Lowes will guarantee that the pellets you buy are the ones you'll get!

    Bought 1 ton from Lowe's in early Jan. My cost was $349.00 per ton. A bit expensive I thought. I will never make another purchase. Glass is always black and constant soot. Not really sure what to buy at this point, seems like the quality is no longer there. Should I be surprised. I am using a Harmon Pellet Insert and never really encountered such a disaster.

    To Whom this concerns;
    I've been using pellets for the last 15+ years, and sad to say I didn't get to use yours sooner. They burn cleaner leaving less ash and blackened window. And burn longer, produce higher Btu's. I live just south of Lake Ontario, and the icy cold snowy winds from the North rips right thru you. Its nice to come in to a warm home using a truly superior pellet!!!
    thank you.

    Five bags in and we love these Greene Team Platinum Pellets. Very low ash, no unburned pellets in the burn pot, good heat. Not easy to get....one Lowes wanted to charge us premium pricing but wouldn't guarantee they would deliver only these pellets. Another Lowes had only these in stock so we were able to get 3 tons, delivered. Pricey....$6.98 a bag, 5% discount off that per ton.

    Being a dealer of wood pellets we hear horror stories about every pellet out there and most of the time it's is related to improper stove maintenance and setting, but on a very few occasions there are pellet issues and a good dealer and product manufacturer should be able to resolve. But enough of this and now the positive I have begun dealing with Greene Team this past year as this is the farthest dealer from central Ny to the Pa -Wv border from me. There product has out preformed and has become my customers new favorite pellet, there heat btu's are fantastic, Ash light and fluffy and they respond to inquires, deliver as needed and use great product to create amazing pellets.

    I have used many different pellets. When I go to buy These are the first ones I look for. Very good pellets, burn hot , low ash and only dump my ash pan once every 2 weeks. I live in central Pa. We do get artic blasts in Jan. thru March these burn hot when needed. I recommend these pellets they are 10 in my book.

    I have a Harman stove and Have been using it for over 12 years. I found that the Green Team Platinum pellets work the best for me. I have my auger turned to it lowest setting {1} and I don't get Black soot. Glass is clean and back of fire is white not black. I bought 3 tons from Lowes, I have 2 tons left from last season
    All other brands I have to put settings at {3} And glass gets smoked and back of fire is black. I really enjoy Green Team platinum and hope the quality continues.
    I hope this is helpful.

    I cleaned my Harman Accentra on Saturday and Monday morning woke to a cool house and almost totally covered glass. I run my stove on feed rate 4 and temp set at 75. I had Greene Team 2 years ago, and they were great. I hand loaded 5 tons, and hope against hope that they're not going to make me sorry. I bought 2 bags of the "Platinum" and was told they're the same as the "Gold" I have now, but the Platinum were much lighter in color similar to Dry Creek or Cubex. I wonder if GT isn't using more bark in the mix??

    I bought some from Lowes in late August, this year (2014). I recently attempted to use a bag only to find that they do not ignite. I thought at first it may be my stove and so attempted to start them using a starter brick in the stove and then (just in case the stove didn't have enough air being fed), outside. They still would not start. The pellets would "singe" black and that was all they'd do. I'm guessing based on other reviews that it may just be a bad batch, but I am not impressed since I had to pick up and put away all 3 pallets.

    I've been burning wood pellets in my Enviro pellet stove for 5 years. I've burned several brands of pellets and none have produced the black soot that the Greene Team pellets produce. I even did a thorough cleaning of the stove, stove pipe and chimney, and even replaced the door gasket. Nothing seem to help the black soot problem. I contacted Greene Team and they sent me a box to return a bag of pellets for testing. As you might expect, the company found that the pellets met all specifications. I believe that something besides wood was introduced into the manufacturing process of these pellets. Since this company was previously a coal mining company, I believe that coal is the culprit of this black soot problem.
