Various Application of Briquettes

Use of Eco-Friendly Briquettes as a fuel to save non-conventional fuels has shown very promising results.

Application of Briquette

Biomass Briquettes are widely used for any type of Thermal Application like steam generation in boilers, heating purpose, drying process & gasification plant to replace existing conventional fuel like coal, wood & costly liquid fuel like FO, Diesel, LDO, Kerosene etc. Use of Eco-Friendly Briquettes as a fuel to save non-conventional fuels has shown very promising results.

Bio coal briquette made by briquetting press is a forth coming fuel of the world. It’s a high excellence asset towards inexpensive, ecological & progressive environmental company policy.

Biomass materials and their Typical Characteristics

Biomass materials and biomass based industry residues are very important renewable energy sources. The importance of these materials as alternate fuels i.e., Briquettes has been well recognized for use in power generation. While the characteristics of biomass like Calorific Value, Ash Content etc. vary from different geographical regions, the values for typical biomass materials are indicated for general guidance.

What is biomass and How is it used?

It is used for many types of things such as cooking, heating homes and buildings and even for electricity sources. Biomass has become so popular because it is a very clean, renewable source for energy and fuel.

Its advantage is that it can be used to generate electricity with the same equipment or power plants that are now burning fossil fuels. Biomass is an important source of energy and the most important fuel worldwide after coal, oil and natural gas. Traditional use of biomass is more than its use in modern application.

It can help mitigate climate change; reduce acid rain; prevent soil erosion and water pollution; minimize pressure on landfills; provide wildlife habitat; and help maintain forest health through better management. The use of biomass will reduce the nation’s greenhouse gas emissions.

They are also called Bio Coal or White Coal and Bio Fuel. Biomass Briquettes are product of briquetting process of converting a low density biomass in a compact high density biomass, concentrated with high energy. … Binder works as a moisturizer to hold the briquette.
