Energy Production from Pellet Fuel

The pellets fuel are a modern form of densified biomass offering interesting opportunities for development of Renewable Energy in Indonesia, consisting of wood pellets and biomass pellets. Wood pellets derived from wood and biomass pellets derived from biomass such as agricultural wastes and plantations such as oil palm empty fruit bunches. Pellet fuel that be produced could have a large variation in quality because of the raw materials and production technologies. Technology for pellet fuel utilization in thermal route for energy production which is burning and gasification has been applied.

The production of energy from pellets fuel in the form of heat and electricity. Heating with pellets fuel is normally quite simple and the need for inspection and care of the burner and boiler is often limited. However, combustion problems can arise e.g. if the amount of ash increases causing the system to slag and the efficiency to decrease. These problems are often caused by the low quality of pellets fuel or by wrong choice of the plant or system settings.

Calorific value, ash content, ash chemistry, moisture content, dimension and density pellets are several important parameters of pellet fuel. Preference type of pellet fuel will determine the combustion technology. Currently available equipments to burn pellets fuel from the household scale (pellet stove), medium scale up to production of heat and electricity for large scale up to tens of megawatts (MW). Equipment or systems are generally equipped with air regulation valves either primary or secondary and even tertiary to optimize the combustion process is done. Setting the correct operation make the system work optimally match to the specification.

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 …
