Popularizing Wood Briquette For Renewable Fuel and Environmentally Friendly Part 2

One of the obstacles of lack using for wood briquette that because still no wood briquette stove available in market. Wood briquette stove that special designed for burning the wood briquette so it can be used for cooking is the main factor for wood briquette will be accepted of households and small-medium industries. Food and pharmaceutical industries especially need 'clean' fuel from biomass like wood briquette. Smell and taste of food will no change or contaminant of pharmaceutical industries can be minimized.

Supply of the wood briquette also easier to be done because the production process and technology already mastered. All equipments can be fabricated in the local fabricator in Indonesia even extruder or screw press that the main equipment in briquetting. That is different with wood pellet in which pelleting equipment (pelletiser) still have to be imported from foreign countries. The investment for production equipment (machineries) of wood briquette also cheaper compare with wood pellet, even almost a half.

For feeding the wood briquette into the stove can be done manually, that because the size of wood briquette much bigger than wood pellet. At wood briquette stove usually installed door in upper part for feeding or inserting the wood briquette. While in the wood pellets feeding can be done with screw conveyor because the size of wood pellet is small enough and pourable. In addition wood briquette also available in many shapes for example cylinder, hexagon, cube etc. The shapes of the wood briquette come from many briquetting technologies, that can be read here. All of the briquette can use the wood briquette stove as long as the size and length fit with it. Generally briquetting also easier compare with pelleting. Raw material that success in briquetting not always success in pelleting but not respectively.

The high stove efficiency can be achieved if heat loss from burning can be minimized. Wood briquette has low moisture content so smoke generated from the combustion also minimum. With wood briquette price cheaper per-heat calory compare with LPG, so using wood briquette also more economical. Operational of the stove that easier and practical will drive the usage of the wood briquette. The stove also can be equipped with TEG (Thermo-Electric Generator) for getting small electricity.

Plam Oil EFB Briquette

Beside the wood wastes for wood briquette production, agricultural wastes also can be made into biomass briquette for example rice husk, coffee husk, coconut husk, baggase, palm oil empty fruit bunch, etc. Some of the wastes mentioned before abundant in some Indonesia regions. Empty fruit bunch (EFB) of palm oil for example abundant in palm oil mills and more than 600 palm oil mills available in Indonesia. The EFB can be briquetted then can be used as biomass fuel.

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 …
