What is Biomass Briquettes?
Biomass Briquettes are basically prepared out of Agriculture Waste, Forestry Waste, as well as Industrial Waste. The chief residues include Rice Husk, Coffee Husk, Coir Pitch, Jute Sticks, Sugarcane Bagasse, Groundnut Shell, Mustard Stalks, Cotton Stalks, Sawdust, Caster Seed Shells / Stalk, Wood Chips, Bamboo Dust, Tobacco Waste, Tea Waste, Paddy Straw, Wheat Straw, Sunflower Stalk, Palm Husk, Soya bean Husk, Veneer Residues, Barks & Straws, Forestry waste, Seeds Cases etc. It is thus prepared from residues offering high calorific value cal/kg. It is first of all the raw material is converted into solid cylindrical shape. Then the briquettes are binded. The Technology that is utilized here for the binding of the wastage is known as the Binder less Technology. This is because it does not need any sort of Binder or Chemical Adhesive. This method is excellent as it causes low pollution and is trouble-free to employ.
In India the States Government supports this Industry by offering incentives to the producer, plant holder and Briquettes user. Briquettes are extensively utilized in steam generation via boilers, for heating purposes etc. It is also used in the Industries like Paper Mills, Solvent Extraction Plants, Vegetable Plant, Chemical Plant, Textile Units, Dying House, Food Processing Units, Milk Plant, Sugarcane Mills, Leather Industries, and Laminating Industries etc. And Biomass Briquettes / White Coal are offer most excellent results in such industries. Thus it is clear that Briquettes are extremely useful in almost each and every Industry that needs fuel.
