The Destiny of Biomass Briquette Industry in China

Nobody remembers who is the first one to take a try on biomass fuel industry, while it is for sure that 10 years ago,YuanchunShi-an academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences and Chinese Academy of Engineering saw great potential in the importance of developing biomass fuel industry. It now seems that the regions in China are doing well in this new field are Guangdong province, Pearl River Delta region and Henan province.

After about 10 years of development, which company is the first to start is not important anymore, it is which one develops better that matters. It takes a lot of courage to put biomass fuels into application, in the last 10 years, a great part of the people who has started the biomass fuel business had failed. One story for an investor is like this: the owner of a fire place manufacturer tried to manufacturer the biomass combustion machine, then for technical problems, he destroyed several batches of machines by himself, and more than 500 thousands RMB were wasted, lucky for him, he succeeded in make the profit that can cover the invest fund in one year.

China is the world largest manufacturer, it has hundreds and thousands of factories that need fuel every day. While the traditional fossil fuels and natural gas has the disadvantage of high pollution level, high cost, the sustainable clean biomass fuel becomes the logical choice. Although this is still has a series of problems waiting to be solved. The biomass briquetting machine, biomass fireplaces, biomass boiler and other specialized equipments would be improved and biomass fuel industry will change the world in the near future.

Distributed Power and Heat Network Will Have a Long Way to Go

Clean and renewable energies industries are developing at a very slow speed now, the major problems are the immature technologies and the high cost, and now people begin to realize distributed power and heat network theory might be the most appropriate solution to ease this situation.
The scientists and engineers will work out the tech part in some day, maybe in a few years later, questioning the rate of tech innovation is not wise any more, if you look back in the America history, the period between people using carriage and driving a car is only 12 years; it only took 10 years for the Chinese to change the habit of using fixed phone to mobile phone.

Subsidies from the government would be able to help the renewable energy industry in the long term, to be independent and making profit ability, every penny of the investment must go to the most valuable place. Take the briquette production for example, one major part of the cost comes from the transportation, with the deliver and raw material collecting range limited, the cost can be reduced by a large part, this is how the distributed power and heat network comes out naturally. It could be more flexible with the small and mobile briquette press machine in the rural areas.

All renewable fuel industries’ goals are the same-to be integrated into the major power and heat system, the cost caused by distance problem is not easy to solve, and the productivity of these corporations are still at low level, so there seems to be a very long way to go.

Why Use the Forest Wood Waste in Biomass Briquette Production

There are some people making a point on how biomass briquettes are developing in the wrong direction, and biomass briquette production has caused more problem and shall be stopped, the fact forest land is decreasing is the truth, but it is only part of the truth. There are illegal cuttings of the trees in the forest in some European countries, part of them are well grown ones, it takes dozens of years for a tree to grow that big, cut those trees down to make wood briquette and logs is a act of wasting resources.

Cutting some of the trees that are dead and having serious worm problems would do good to the forest: it would adjust the plant density for better growing conditions; prevent the worm problems to spread to other trees; and one very important thing is preventing the fire accidents. Each year, there are unexpected fire happening in the forest around the world, the unusual dry and hot weather would increase the fire rate, the wooden residues like leaves and branches in the forest are very easy to catch fire, and with the strong wind, the fires usually last for several days before going out. The fires turn the trees and plant into waste, so reduce the wooden residues in the forest before the unusual weather come would lower the chances of the fire, it is a one stone and two birds deal.

Forest wood waste is a very natural gift for biomass briquette production, it is a reliable raw material resource for wood briquette plant, once the illegal cutting problem is solved, biomass briquette industry would come to a better time.

How to Do The Biomass Briquette Fuel Business Successfully

It’s been said that there is no garbage in the world, only the resource in the wrong place.

To a country, fuel crisis and weak fuel independence means the development of the country is limited, now every country in the world is trying to control its own destiny of fuel, even the Japan, a country which lacks every kind of fuel resources, now seeks the help of solar, sea wave, wind powers, and the recently found flammable ice. In most of other developed countries, the biomass fuel business is well known and becomes better each year.

The biomass briquette fuel is one of the many environmental friendly fuel types, its development process might provide a lot of useful info for other more tech-lead fuels like solar, wind power. Here are some advices from the companies which has been successful in this field:

1.    Independent research and development of technology: the technology in biomass briquette making still has great potential to upgrade, without independent R&D, no better biomass briquette machine can be developed to fit the market, and the company wouldn’t go very far.

2.    Raw material resource: the raw material resource is unstable; the production field is scattered; no platform for the communication of the seller and buyer-they couldn’t find each other; the raw material price stability, the company who can solve these problem has already been half successful.

3.    Sustained financing: The support from government shall not be the only help to the biomass briquette fuel industry, the company which is able to get sustained financing would be much stronger when facing with the unexpected risks.

4.    Selling: to have a list of good customers is not easy, there is a lot of work to do, the reduced management cost in the future is the big reward.

Common Knowledge on Biomass Straw Pellet Fuel Miller

Straw Pellet Fuel Miller Introduction:
Straw pellet fuel miller is the common name for a series of machines which are specialized for the purpose of turning saw dust, straw, peanut hull, haulm, tree branches, edible fungus waste and other biomass matters into fuel pellet products with high heat values. Biomass fuel stove is the corollary equipment developed for higher heat efficiency.

Pellet Miller Working Principle:
It can be simply explained in one word: the raw materials are made into pellet through the pressure between the 2 parts of the machine-the roller and the die. In the pellet production, if the raw materials contains high quantities of cellulose and lignin, the step of adding addictives or binder can be skipped, the lignin is a matter featured with Benzene propane type polymer compound, under normal conditions it extracted into no solvent, but it has a soften point, with pressure added, the lignin will make the cellulose structure reform and become one whole unite, that is process going inside of the raw materials.

Straw Pellet Characteristics:
Straw pellet products are featured with high weight proportion, small size, long burning time, easier to be transport and stored. The size of it could be 1/30-1/40 of the original size of the raw material, the heat value range is 3400-6000 calories.

Application of Briquetting Machine Europe, the United States, Asia and Africa

Generally, application of briquetting machine Europe, the United States, Asia and Africa seems to be taking a different turn. In the past, the need for briquetting machine was only seen necessary in countries in Europe and the US but over time Asia and Africa have also joined in the use of these equipment. In third world countries for instance, compared to what the briquetting machine Europe or even the United States would be used for, people have not shown or applied this equipment to its full purpose.

Major residue from the farm like husks from rice, husks from coffee, groundnut shells, and stalks of all kind like cotton stalks, sawdust and other milling residue has been left to go to waste. These countries have also faced other challenges that include transportation, storage as well as handling making the briquetting procedure not to be applied effectively. Briquetting is also known as biomass densification and in the past it was applied more on sawdust but recently the practice has crossed to another level in Europe and most developed countries where equipment to transform any agro matter has been designed to process that matter and turn it to fuel. Briquetting procedure in Europe applies two methods, the piston press and screw extrusion techniques.

Using Biomass Briquette as a Fuel

With the rising costs of heating and natural fuel many are seeking for alternatives that are cheaper and cost effective. The biomass briquette as a fuel, offers a way out especially where the required raw materials are readily available. biomass briquette fuelWith growing population and the depletion of forests and natural cover, many environmentalists will call for alternative fuel sources that will not pollute the air therefore lead to reduction global warming causing pollutants. A call to make the earth a better place for all the living things is on the increase and all means to achieve this welcomed.

Acquisition of machines that will make the biomass briquette as a fuel, increases the chances of fighting and championing for a greener environment. This provides ready cooking and fuel that is simple and easy to produce. As a renewable energy source, biomass has varied technological options that converts or release energy such as:

  • Heat
  • Electricity
  • Biofuel

The biomass fuel can be derived from the following; wood, agro waste and solid waste. It can be converted to usable forms such as biogas, ethanol, and biodiesel. Fermentation of some crops such as corn can be fermented to produce fuels for automobiles. A lot of research is underway to produce other fuels for use.

Electricity production from forests products, agro waste and animal residue is becoming common and briquette making from biomass even more popular.
