This project is called âBiomass Briquetting Plantâ and is aprocess of converting Agro waste and forestry waste into biomass briquettes/Biocoal. The biomass briquetting is the best renewable source of energy forhealthy environment and economy. Itâs complete Eco-friendly green energyproject.
We all are well aware with the importance of energy and itssources. Energy is the key factor in the economic development of every country. The demand ofenergy is increasing day by day and the supplies of sources are limited. It isglobally red alert for fossil fuel like petrol, kerosene, natural gas, LPG andlignite etc. this has made a huge gap between demand and supply of energy.Renewable energy is the ultimate solution, which can fill this gap. Most ofadvanced countries have adopted this concept and accepted this project and have retained their natural resources to get the solution ofenergy and fuels.
Main concept of this project is to produce the material as abio-coal, which is made from the wastages. We cannot destroy the wastagestotally but we can use it with the help of briquetting plant and can producethe briquettes which ultimately generate energy. âTo provide the energy in lowcostâ is the main concept of the project.
Almost any biomass can be briquetted. Briquetting plants setso far in India are using saw dust, bamboo dust, bagasse, cotton stalk, coffeehusk, groundnut shell, mustard husk/stalk, pine needles, rice husk, sugar mill waste, jute waste, coir pith andother wastes & residues like castor shell, tobacco stem, tea waste, treebark, wild grasses & shrubs i.e. any type of agriculture waste or forestrywaste can be also briquetted individually or in combination without using anybinder.
Â· Raw material (of desired size) is transported bypneumatic system to holding bins fixed over briquetting press.
Â· Material is compressed by ram through taperbored die. By compression temperature is raised & lignin come to thesurface and binds the material by its natural binder.
Â· Briquettes are formed in shape of log and it isautomatically pushed through cooling line to the storage point.
