Biomass Briquettes are made from the Agricultural waste, Forest Waste and Industrial Waste. It is converted into solid cylindrical shape. The major residues are Rice Husk, Coffee Husk, Coir Pitch, Jute Sticks, Sugarcane Baggasse, Groundnut Shell, Mustard Stalks, Cotton Stalks, Sawdust, Caster Sedd Shells / Stalk, Wood Chips, Bamboo Dust, Tobacco Waste, Tea Waste, Paddy Straw, Wheat Straw, Sunflower Stalk, Palm Husk, Soyabean Husk, Veneer Residues, Barks and Straws, Forestry waste, Seeds Cases etc., Briquettes are the only Binding. Biomass briquettes are eco-friendly renewable source of energy and avoid adding fossil carbon to the atmosphere.
A number of companies in India have switched from furnace oil to biomass briquettes to save costs on boiler fuels. The use of biomass briquettes is predominant in the southern parts of India, where coal and furnace oil are being replaced by biomass briquettes. A number of units in North India are also using biomass briquettes as boiler fuel. Use of biomass briquettes can earn Carbon Credits for reducing emissions in the atmosphere. Biomass briquettes also provide more calorific value/kg and save around 30-40 percent of boiler fuel costs.
Bio-mass briquette is one which takes a waste products such as saw dust, compresses it and then extrudes it to make a reconsistuted log which can replace firewood. It is a very similar process to forming a wood pellet but on a larger scale. There are no binders involved in this process. The natural lignin in the wood binds the particles of wood together to form a solid. Burning a wood briquette is far more efficient than burning firewood. Moisture content of a briquette can be as low as 4%, where as green firewood may be as high as 65%.
Raw Materials used
Depending upon the customer’s requirement of using Raw materials and availability, it can be tried and presented. The above material can be individually Briquetted or in mixed form also.
Products and its Advantage
Ã¢â‚¬Â¢ Briquetted fuels, as it is made out of agro waste can be made easily available and there is an advantage of bulky garbage reused with high fuel efficiency.
