What is Biomass Fuel
Although biomass fuel has long and repeatedly been mentioned in newspapers and magazines, biomass fuel is still a newcomer to a lot of people. What is a biomass fuel? Simply put, biomass is biological material derived from organisms that once lived. So, biomass fuel, or biofuel, is fuel that is developed from organic materials, a renewable and sustainable source of energy used to create electricity, heat or other forms of power.
When it comes to biomass fuel, people always think of biodiesel or ethanol fuel. But don’t forget another important kind of fuel – the pellet fuel. Biomass pellet fuel is ecologically sound pellets manufactured from biomass material, mostly rice husks, peanut shells, corn cobs, cottonseed hulls, and “three residues”.
As part of biomass fuel, biomass pellet fuel has many advantages.
Advantage 1 Biomass pellet fuel releases more heat, which is about 3900 to 4800 kcal / kg, and may reach 7000-8000 kcal / kg after carbonization. With a high thermal efficiency of combustion, biomass fuel can promote the performance of biomass material.Biomass pellets
Advantage 2 Clean and green, biomass pellet fuel is a natural fuel with low moisture content, which is a suitable alternate for city gas. Since biomass pellet fuel does not contain sulfur and phosphorus, it will not produce sulfur dioxide or phosphorus pentoxide, etc, and thus will not cause acid rain and be friendly to the environment.
Advantage 3 Biomass pellet fuel has small volume due to the shape of pellets, and in this way it not only saves a lot of storage space but also reduces transportation costs. What’s more, it is convenient to feed material, which greatly reduces the labor density and costs.
After getting a preliminary idea of what a biomass fuel, especially biomass pellet fuel, is, you must have had your own ideas. Since biomass pellet fuel has a bright future with no doubt, biomass pelletizing equipment is also becoming more and more popular on the market, especially the biomass pellet mills and the related machines such as hammer mills, dryers, vibrating screens, etc. You can contact with us any time you want if you’d like to own one too.
