Bio energy briquette press is used to manufacture best class and good mass bio briquettes from agro-forestry waste like timber flakes, sawdust, rice husk, wheat straw and other biomass material. These briquetting plants are used in certain industries extensively such as ceramic and refractory industry, chemicals, milk plants, lamination industries, food processing industries, leather industry, textile units and brick making units. Binder less technology is used in Briquette press that ensures it is commercially viable, it is easy to operate and maintain and the technology is accepted globally.
Some fuel from biomass tends to fuse together better than other biomass. Sawdust is an especially suitable feedstock for pelleting because the lignin that is naturally present in the wood acts as a glue to hold the pellet together. Briquette press helps processing of the material in pieces of geometrically regular and uniform in each case form, almost same mass.
It is essential to know whether the Briquette Press technology was economically viable or not. Therefore an attempt was made for estimation of economics of the Biomass briquettes prepared by Briquette Press technology from biomass. Thebio briquettes were prepared on screw press extruder briquette press for different combinations of major biomass. The prepared bio briquettes after sun drying were subjected to various tests for assessing the quality of fuel.
Compared to fossil fuels, the biomass briquettes produce low net total greenhouse gas emissions because the materials used are already a part of the carbon cycle. The most common use of the briquettes biomass is in the developing world, where energy sources are not as widely available. Lot of companies are using this technology of briquette press, as it is eco friendly and makes best use of waste.
This research was to design a Briquette Press to produce biomass briquette fuel by a Briquetting process, and to investigate its performance in terms of production rate and specific energy consumption in echo friendly way.
Briquette biomass, mostly made of green waste and other organic materials, are commonly used for electricity generation, heat, and cooking fuel. These compressed compounds contain various organic materials, including rice husk, biogases, ground nut shells, municipal solid waste, agricultural waste, or anything that contains high nitrogen content. The composition of the Briquette biomass varies by area due to the availability of raw materials.
Two of the major environmental and social issues facing humankind today are waste-disposal and bringing heat to the poorest people on earth. Since at the moment no one can produce wastes that are of both ecological and moral importance, industries are requested to convert wastes into circuit of energy as much as possible. It is possible for everyone to have his own renewable source of heat from local and cheap materials
The primary source for heating and food preparation in the developing world is wood, and millions spend a good part of each day chopping and gathering wood to heat their homes, boil water and cook with. Briquette Press that would reduce the need for fuel wood and create a source of fuel from a renewable resource.
When biomass is obtained as briquette it can be used in mechanical and production industries where boilers are used. By the means of these boilers electricity is produced from steam. Even some of the countries are solely dependent on bio briquette to generate electricity. The most common use of the briquettes is in the developing countries, where energy sources are not as widely available. There has been a move to the use of biomass briquettes in the developed world through the use of cofiring, when the briquettes are combined with coal in order to create the heat supplied to the boiler.
Biomass briquettes or Briquetting of Biomass in the local language has brought biomass blazing to the most difficult of developed industries across the country. the fuel has not seen any significant use in great scale business until now. Briquette Press is used to manufacture best class and good mass fuel briquettes from agro-forestry waste.
When waste products that would normally be discarded are used to create biomass briquettes they are considered a renewable and sustainable energy source. Many individuals and businesses, including power plants, want to use that type of energy. Biomass briquettes are more environmentally friendly than some other energy sources. They produce a lower amount of greenhouse gases than fossil fuels do because biomass briquettes are made of waste materials that were already part of the carbon cycle.
The success of the briquette biomass technology was not only in its simplicity, but in the fact that it offered a sustainable income, generating opportunity. Not only are biomass briquettes easy to make, but they allow the rural and urban poor to make money in the process. By replacing firewood and charcoal with bio briquettes, producers can increase their income by 20%. Income generation along with saving the environment makes a sustainable solution to poverty reduction.
Biomass briquettes are typically made of organic materials, mostly green waste or anything high in nitrogen that burns. That includes such things as grass; plant husks; hulls and stalks; ground nut shells; wood waste; waste paper and cardboard; and food and animal waste, including municipal solid waste.
