Use the energy that’s hiding within biomass! Straw, hay, tobacco, nut shells, peat, miscanthus, shells from legumes, cotton wool, and flax are valuable raw materials that can be used for the production of energy.
When a loose material is pressed into a stackable briquette, the product is much easier to transport and resell. The calorific value of the highly compressed biomass briquettes is much higher than with loose mass, the burning properties are ideal. Biomass briquettes can be further used as a low-cost alternative for the production of feed/feedstock for the agricultural industry.
Advantages of biomass 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. Simplified maintenance
The dust generated during the processing of biomass is not only cumbersome and contaminates the workplace, but it also poses a considerable health risk for your employees or even a risk of explosion.
This danger must be mitigated proactively – and biomass briquetting is the answer. The dust 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 have considerable production and utilization potential.
Biomass briquetting 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. Briquettes burn at a high temperature due to their dense nature.
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 moisture content of the material should be at or below 15 percent.
WEIMA offers you a briquette press individually adapted to your desired throughput capacity and application. This solution could consist of a single machine or a complete system for the energetic use of miscanthus, straw or other biomass materials. 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 in Fort Mill, South Carolina.
