The huge quantity of the agricultural crop wastes are easily converted into the high quality fuel using the biomass briquette plant. This technique called “Biomass Briquetting” which is completely Eco-friendly.
Biomass Briquette is the process of making briquettes. Let us first understand what is a briquette and what is briquetting machine? A briquettes is basically a block of compressed biomass waste obtained from natural materials like agricultural waste, forestry waste, seed covers, coal pieces, etc. These briquettes act as the best substitute for non-renewable fuel that is environment friendly. This poses no harmful effect on the environment and is atmosphere friendly. The main use of these briquettes is as a substitute to fuel, coal, cooking and even in boilers.
Briquetting is one of the compaction technologies for densification of waste materials and convert it into something useful. The raw materials used in preparing briquetting consist of coal, charcoal, wood, saw dust, paper, stalks, etc. They are compressed in special briquetting plant to generate a uniform shaped briquette that can be used to ignite fire and generate energy. The briquettes prepared come in different shape and size depending on the application for which it is to be used.
In briquetting process the materials are first crushed into small size so that they can be compressed properly and burn easily. Special crushing machine is available in the market to crush the raw materials. The briquette are highly preferred in the locations where fuel is hard to find and is costly. Thus at such places briquetting can become the best option for getting fuel at cheap price and easy way. The main advantage in briquetting machine is that it does not require any binder to bind the materials together to form a briquette. Thus it is also known as binder-less technology.
The briquettes are chosen over coal and other non-renewable fuel that are hard to obtain and generate. The advantage of biomass briquetting is the high calorific valve useful in easy ignition. Also other key factors for briquette are low production cost, waste material management and conversion of waste to revenue.
