Utilize the potential of biomass and generate sustainable heating energy from resources such as straw, hay, tobacco, nutshells, peat, miscanthus, legume husks, cotton, and flax. With WEIMA’s advanced biomass briquetting solutions, you can efficiently convert these materials into high-quality fuel briquettes. This not only enhances the storage and transport capabilities of biomass but also increases combustion efficiency.
The briquette form makes your waste transportable and ready for profitable sales. The calorific value of the highly compressed briquettes is much higher than with loose mass, the burning properties are ideal. The efficient further use of biomass as a low-cost alternative for the production of feed for the agricultural industry is also indispensable.
Examples from the biomass industry
Advantages of briquetting
1. Volume reduction of up to 90 % of the starting material
2. Improvement of combustion properties
3. Reduction of dust emission
4. High pressing pressure for high briquette density
5. Better residue handling
6. Minimized disposal costs
7. Reduction of transport and storage costs
8. User-friendly design
9. High ease of maintenance
The dust generated during the processing of biomass is not only cumbersome and contaminates the workplace, but also poses a considerable health risk for your employees or even a risk of explosion.This danger must be minimized – and briquetting provides a solution. The dusts can be fed to the briquette press via an extraction system and then used or sold in briquette form for energetic use.
Renewable raw materials are regionally and sustainably available as bioenergy sources and are characterized by considerable production and utilization potentials.
The pressing of biomass to briquettes improves the combustion properties compared to the loose material. In briquette form, biogenic raw materials can be ideally used for combustion in a heating stove.
By using your own energy, you can become independent and generate sustainable heat with a clear conscience.
Did you know?
For dimensionally stable briquettes made of biomass, the water content of the material should be below 15 percent.
WEIMA offers you a briquette press individually adapted to your desired throughput capacity and application, whether as a single machine or as a complete solution for the energetic use of miscanthus, straw or other biomass. The throughput capacity of WEIMA briquetting presses for biomass is between 40 kg/h and 400 kg/h. With a WEIMA briquette press, you can press your biogenic waste materials into dimensionally stable briquettes without the addition of binding agents.
The WEIMA show room is equipped with shredding and briquetting machines of all sizes and technologies. This enables us to simulate your application as realistically as possible. You have the possibility to send us your material or visit us directly in Ilsfeld.
