The main use of a bio-briquette projectBio-briquettes are mainly used for thermal applications where coal can be used. The set-up can be used in the generation of steam in industrial boilers and for heating purposes. Bio-briquettes can be used as a substitute for various conventional fuels such as furnace oil, coal, firewood, and kerosene among others. Some of the industries that make maximum utilization of briquettes include food processing industries, vegetable plants, textile units, chemical units and any other industries that utilize thermal applications.
Significance of setting up a bio-briquette project
- Production of electricity
- Minimization of fossil fuel consumption
- Bio-briquettes provide clean heating to power plants
- Reduction of waste products from the industry
- Job opportunities
Advantages of setting up a bio-briquette project
- Bio-briquettes are a cheaper source of energy compared to coal
- Briquettes are efficient due to low levels of moisture and higher density than firewood and loose biomass.
- Biomass briquettes have a higher percentage of thermal content and lower ash content compared to coal.
- Briquettes are a renewable source of energy unlike coal and oil, which cannot be reused.
- They do not include transportation costs since they are typically present around the consumption centers.
Factors that investors will notice in a bio-briquette project
- The calorific value: This influences the burning of the briquettes. High calorific values are required to properly burn briquettes.
- Resistance to humidity: Humidity can cause damage to briquettes. Features such as lignin and other binders in briquettes are soluble in water.
- Moisture content: This is one of the factors that affect the quality of the bio-briquette. The content of moisture is determined by the type of the feedstock and its properties. Optimal moisture content is between 10 percent and 18 percent.
- Ash removal: Ash is one of the factors that influence the quality of a briquette. Accumulation of ash may result in the blockage of air holes resulting in reduced air supply. Investors will always look for briquettes with low ash levels.
- Compacting pressure: An increase in compacting pressure enhances briquettes strength. The higher the compacting pressure, the lower the atmospheric humidity levels, hence increasing the durability of the bio-briquette.
