Torrefied Wood: Biomass Fuel of Substituting Coal in The Future

Compared to conventional biomass fuels such as wood pellets are only capable of a maximum of 10% in co-firing with coal because of the nature of chemistry and physic  are much different whereas if the percentage of co-firing with coal increased to 20% required the addition of a large investment for the handling and processingnya, then torrefied wood even capable of co-firing with coal to 40%. Another advantage is on the side of the powerplant also just needed a little extra investment for handling and processingnya for torrefied wood, due to the physico-chemical properties are not much different.

Densification or compaction into pellets or torrefied wood briquettes will also give a more significant savings than wood pellets, ie 15.0-18.7 MJ/m3 on torrified pellets and  7.5-10.4 MJ/m3 at wood pellets. Because the torrefied wood brittle, so it can be burned with coal dipulverize and more advisable, instead of using the material handling, processing to a separate injection system. This will result in significant savings on equipment modification when cofiring at a greater percentage. A number of agro-industry waste biomass such as empty fruit bunches and palm thatch can torrefaksi as well as woody biomass, to enhance combustion conditions in the coal system.
Torrefied wood cofiring has been successfully carried out one of them in the coal power plant in Borselle, Netherlands. Research also shows that the smoothing torrefied wood into powder with a specific particle size distribution and allows for the smooth fluidization regimes on the feeding entrained flow process (gasifier and pulverized coal boilers).

10 Advantages By Making Energy Plantations for Wood Pellet Production

Assuredness of supply of raw materials is one of the key factors of business success in the wood pellets. There are two ways to obtain raw materials commonly done today: a. Buying from the owner of source of raw materials. b. Producing its own the availability of raw materials. While the 3rd way and there is still few for business owners make wood pellets is by mix way, which is partly provide by their own of raw materials and some rest buy from the other source of raw materials.
While examining at the types of biomass raw materials there are two kinds, namely : a. Woody biomass b. Non-wood biomass such as agricultural wastes (empty fruit bunches of palm oil trees, corn cobs, rice husks and so on). Currently woody biomass remains a priority to be products of wood pellets as a number of advantages over non-wood biomass which is generally an agricultural wastes, are included in the category of biomass pellets or agri-waste pellets. The comparison between wood pellet and biomass pellet …

Scrambling Biomass Waste Empty Fruit Bunch of Palm Oil: For Paper or Pellets?

In an effort to optimize the full potential of a number of oil companies are planning to process their wastes that resulting from the CPO production process. One of them is empty fruit bunches (EFB).  Two alternatives are being hotly debated is made pellets for energy and for the paper. Viewed from the business side, if it is profitable so is certainly not a problem for the production of both products. Availability of raw materials into one of the important factors in terms of production and business in general.
Further analysis can be done by looking in more detail in the production process technology, the amount of investment, ROI, environmental aspects, sustainability of core business (palm oil) and benefits of the products produced are a number of factors that will make it easier to eventually choose one. Further know more detail about the characteristics of each business such products will also further increase the stability of both products. In the end, the higher score determi…

Wood Briquette Left Behind 25 Years of Wood Pellet

Common areas with wood burning application it will be appropriate to use wood briquette and less suitable when using wood pellets. Various areas in various parts of the world use wood for heating (wood burning stove or boiler) or for cooking. If the ratio of wood as fuel is much so the business of  wood briquette production will be more attractive than wood pellets. Globally wood briquette are less popular than wood pellets, so the wood briquette production is also far below the wood pellets. Wood briquette also has its own characteristics compared to wood pellets.

In general, wood briquette production is also much easier than wood pellets. The particle size, raw materials, moisture content and operations slightly more stringent than the requirements for the production of wood pellets. All wood pellets have a cylindrical shape which is only distinguished diameter of the cylinder, and a commonly used the diameter of 6 mm and 8 mm, while the wood briquette in addition to its shape can …
