Take a Look Closer at Wood Pellet

When we examine more closely to the wood pellet surface that we will look smooth, slippery and shiny. Even as smooth surface, slick and shiny that there are people who say that wood pellets are specially coated. Obviously this statement is groundless because especially not supported with a strong argument. Production of several  tons, tens to hundreds to thousands of tons per day of  wood pellets will produce the number of units very much. How about coating process? And how many substances are used so that the coating and still economically? Altogether these people can not give an answer.

Smooth surface, slippery and shiny is really due to the lignin in the wood tends to be resin that have plastic property. If mold is stretched and the temperature increased, the heat and absence of air condition in the shell will cause pyrolysis is characterized by outer skin darkened by carbonized.  This appears more clearly in the process of screw briquetteproduction, which also features on heater in the die so that the outer skin of the  briquette carbonized

The main components of biomass are cellulose compounds, hemiselulose and lignin. Each of these compounds has a different thermal decomposition temperature. Carbonization occurs when compounds of lignin in the biomass decomposes at a temperature of about 400 C. The table looks like this below.

Carbon Positive, Carbon Carbon Neutral or Negative?

Greenhouse gases from burning fossilfuels have caused the Earth's temperature to rise. Increasing the temperature of the earth or global warming causing numerous disasters due to climate change in a number of places on earth. When greenhouse gases not controlled then the result of damage to the environment of the earth will be more severe. Therefore, efforts were made to reduce greenhouse gases as the cause of environmental problems. In general, there are four common scenarios to prevent the global warming effect of CO2 in the atmosphere gradually, namely: 1.increasing the efficiency so the fossil fuel consumption decreases, 2.mix of renewable fuels with fossil fuels so that fossil fuel consumption has also decreased, 3.substitution of fossil fuels with renewable fuels 4.and the absorption of CO2 in the atmosphere so that the concentration of greenhouse gases can be reduced. Here are some basic terms related to the above problems. Based on the origin and the effect that CO2 in the atmo…

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 …
