Industrial Plantation Forest and Wood Pellet

The potential extent of land and tropical climate conditions should always be grateful for us. Grateful for the blessings of Allah SWT this one by not destroying it and utilize to meet the needs of human life and maintain its sustainability. The extent of industrial plantation forest that has not been managed optimally makes the benefits and sustainability is also less than optimal. Though there are many benefits if the maximum management and not only economic benefits but also the environmental benefits are priceless. Allowing unoccupied land to leave anything is just degraded, barren and desertifying. Whereas the human need for food, energy and water always increases with the increasing number of people. Food, energy and water is the essential human material needs so that he/she can survive and give birth to the next generation. One scenario to get the food, energy and water is 5F project for the world!. The production or development of the energy from trees is also in accordance with the instructions of the Qur'an.

Moratorium of Palm Oil
The bustling palm oil moratorium today, although officially not yet enacted is the right moment to consider energy plantation. Judging from the capital or investment of oil palm business also requires a large capital, besides the problem of plantation maintenance and land quality also become important factors and high cost also. Energy plantation with leguminoceae crops such as calliandra and gliricidae sepium, require only simple and inexpensive maintenance. Moreover, it only takes about 1 year to be harvested wood and can be harvested continuously every year without replanting. Leguminoceae is a pioneer species that is able to fertilize the soil with a symbiotic nitrogen-binding bacterium at its roots. In contrast to palm trees that require high maintenance and fertilizer costs, leguminoceae is the opposite. Palm trees also require a lot of water, this is also the opposite of leguminoceae. Energy plantation such as calliandra also provide important benefits of maintaining the fulfillment of food, energy and water. Comparison between the two can also be read here.

Sovereignty and Energy Producer
It must be acknowledged that Indonesia is no longer a petroleum exporter and therefore no longer a member of OPEC but as an importer country increasingly growing to meet domestic demand. While energy demand is increasing day by day due to population growth. The higher the dependence on imported fuel is the less Indonesia's sovereign in the energy sector. Even energy is an important and vital sector for the sovereignty of one country so the policy instruments that govern it are also not simple. On the other hand when in fact open big opportunities for sovereign to the energy sector one of them with energy plantation, that is by utilizing millions hectares of land that is currently not yet or not utilized. In addition to sovereign from the energy sector, a further vision of becoming an energy producer that supplies energy needs, especially renewable energy to various parts of the world. With the vast potential of the land is not impossible Indonesia became the largest producer of renewable energy from the biomass especially wood pellets. Although the government projection only targeted 17% renewable energy in 2025 through the national energy policy through Presidential Regulation no. 5 of 2006.

There are a number of real advantages to be gained from energy plantation in the form of economic benefits as well as environmental benefits, as can be read here. Production and use of wood pellets as well. A simple schematic or diagram of wood pellet production from calliandra energy plantation can be read here.

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 …
