Environmental Aspects of Wood Pellet Plant

When the process of wood pellets production do not pay attention to the environmental aspects, there will be a negative impact on the environment. Just like the usual plants always have an impact on operations for environment as well as wood pellet plant. The environmental impact was mainly noise pollution and air pollution. Engine or motor of the various units of production in the wood pellets plant is the main cause of the noise pollution. Vibration due to the large variety of equipment operational wood pellet plant also has implications for building damage around the location of the wood pellets plant. To minimize to overcome the problems then use of silencers or the selection of the motor which does not cause disturbing noise and vibration dampening mounting becomes important.
While the problems of air pollution, it is mainly caused by the exhaust gases from the combustion furnace for heating dryers, dust and VOCs (Volatile Organic Compund) of the dryer, dust and cooler from pelletiser. The dust pollution can be more severe if we process of grass type pelletA number of equipments have been developed to overcome this, as stated in the tables below:

Noise elimination and air pollution needs to be done to the acceptable norms. Considerations such as ease of operation, maintenance and the cost are some important things so that these devices can be applied and reached a level that is safe for the environment. Selection of plant location is quite far from the people settlement are also alternatives to reduce the cost of using the equipments for the elimination of pollutants.

5 The Largest Wood Pellets Producers Today

References are needed to make something no less quality or even better, as well as for a wood pellet production facility. Indonesia with extensive land available,fertile and tropical climate needs to get complete and qualified reference especially on wood pellet production so that they can optimize its potency. Diversification of energy is also desperately needed by Indonesia so that it has strong resilience and energy sovereignty, especially with its current condition which has become a net importer of petroleum, even projected in the range of approximately 10 years future Indonesia's oil will be exhausted. The following description of the 5 largest wood pellet plant today can be used as a reference.
Enviva was established in 2004, currently Enviva operates 7 wood pellet plants with total production of more than 3 million tons / year. Some of its wood pellet production is exported to the UK and Europe. A number of ports are used For shipment or export of wood pellet, ie po…

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…
