What is Biomass Fuel Briquettes?

Biomass briquettes are solid form of fuels that are generated from biomass waste. 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. They are 100% binder free called binderless technology, where there is no need of extra chemicals to be added. Binder works as a moisturizer to hold the briquette. We have used progressive technology to regulate the temperature so that lining present in the waste heats and acts as a natural binder. Binders are:

  • 100% Natural
  • 100% Renewable
  • 100% Pollution free
  • 100% Binder less
  • 100% Eco friendly
  • 100% Economical

Applications of Briquettes

Briquettes can be used in various industries for chemical industries, milk plant, vegetable plant, pinning mill, leather industries, rubber industries, ceramic industries, solvent industries, dyeing units, textile units, lamination industries, brick making units, thermal units and many more. Briquettes can be used for boiler, furnace and foundries, brick kilns, residential & commercial Heating.

Briquettes produced from briquetting of biomass through Briquetting Process are fairly good substitute for coal, lignite, firewood and offer numerous advantages:

  • Briquettes are cheaper than coal.
  • Oil, coal or lignite, once used, cannot be replaced.
  • High sulfur content of oil and coal, when burnt, pollutes the environment. There is no sulfur in Briquettes.
  • Biomass briquettes have a higher practical Thermal value and much lower ash content 2-10% as compared to 20-40% in coal.
  • There is no fly ash when burning briquettes.
  • Briquettes have consistent quality have high burning efficiency, and are ideally sized for complete combustion.
  • Combustion is more uniform compared to coal and boiler response to changes in steam requirements is faster due to higher quantity of volatile matter in briquettes.
  • Briquettes are usually produced near the consumption centers and supplies do not depend on erratic transport from long distances.

Briquettes have high specific density (1200 Kg/m3) and bulk density (800 Kg/m3) compared to 60 to 180 Kg/m3 of loose biomass. The long distance transportation of the Briquettes is very easy to manage. Loading/unloading and transportation costs are much lessand storage requirement is drastically reduced. Compared to fire wood or loose biomass, briquettes give much higher boiler efficiency because of low moisture and higher density.
