Many of the developing countries produce huge quantities of but they are used inefficiently causing extensive pollution to the environment. The major residues are rice husk, coffee husk, coir pith, jute sticks, bagasse, groundnut shells, mustard stalks and cotton stalks, sawdust, a milling residue is also available in huge quantity. Apart from the problems of transportation, storage, and handling, the direct burning of loose biomass in conventional grates is associated with very low thermal efficiency and widespread air pollution.
Biomass briquetting process in this situation has come as a rescue. This renewable source of energy is one of the best solutions for climate change. It makes a perfect alternative of natural fuel like gas, lignite, black coal etc., as it does not create any pollution. This is one of the greatest contributors in environment protection process.
In this technique, renewable energy is got from waste material. In short this is also a waste recycling technique, where agro waste is used to produce briquettes, which are further used as fuel. Waste in almost all the industries including agriculture is considered to be useless and dumped here and there or just burnt. No matter in which way the waste is dumped, it creates pollution. Biomass briquette press is the technique that properly utilizes the waste.
Briquettes are the green alternative of charcoal, logs and other fuel for low income groups as well as industries, which have to incur huge costs of furnace fuels. This also enables the companies to take a step towards corporate social responsibility (CSR) and protect the environment. They not only put a check on carbon emission, but also save trees by offering an alternative fuel as biomass briquettes.
From the above discussion we can say that briquetting plant project is very beneficial for environment and industrialist. So the conclusion is that briquettes are the best to use instead of polluted black coal.
