Substituting LPG With Wood Pellet



Scarcity and price of LPG gas in a number of places while on the other hand the potential raw material of pellets from wood waste and other biomass is abundant, is an opportunity that has not been considered by many people. Almost all wood waste and biomass can be used as fuel pellets with high calorific value. When molded in the form of pellets, hence its use becomes easier, cheaper and wider application. Why has not been much use pellets specifically for domestic applications or more specifically for the household in Indonesia? This is because just little producers that produce pellets fuel for the domestic consumption, because generally most to meet export requirements. As for the domestic industry has been pretty much doing the conversion to pellets fuel.




LPG has calorific value of 11,000 kcal / kg while the wood pellets or fuel pellets have a calorific value of about 4000 kcal / kg, one kg of LPG means equivalent to three kgs of pellets fuel. LPG subsidy currently costs Rp 6000, -/kg, while the price of pellets fuel perkg her about a quarter or USD 1500/kg. This is so it will save about 25% when doing the substitution of fuel to the fuel type. Stoves are specifically designed to easily and efficiently will make use of the rapidly increasing use of pellets for households. Both household and industrial scale will be much to save when doing the substitution. Especially for industries that use non-subsidized fuel savings will be even more when using this pellets fuel.



Source of raw materials for the production of wood pellets especially from woody biomass material from waste wood such as sengon wood, albasia and so on. Other alternative is by making the energy plantation or the energy forest to ensure the availability of energy and sustainable supply of raw materials. As for pellets fuel feedstock  then almost all the biomass waste such as agricultural waste and plantation can be used as cobs and corn stalks, cassava stems, baggase, rice husks, palm empty fruit bunches and so on.

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 …
