Gujarat is the leading state across India in production of briquette. Binder less biomass briquette machines are used by above 150 biomass briquette manufacturers based in India.
In replacing fossil fuels like gas, kerosene, diesel etc., & thermal application and pellet machine Biomass briquettes are used as the best alternatives to lignite, coal and charcoal. Also known as White Coal, the Biomass briquettes are none polluting, non-conventional, biodegradable in nature, economical and renewable source of energy. Biomass briquettes have bulk density (800 Kg/m3) and high specific density (1200Kg/m3) as compared to 60 to 180 Kg/m3 of loose biomass.
Benefits of Biomass Briquettes:
Saving in Transportation, Storage and Maintain 90 % of waste volume can be reduced. Briquettes transformed by biomass waste increase density of biomass in bulk quantity, thus costs of storage, maintaining & transportation is reduced by almost 10 times, to make storage and transportation easier than fossil fuels. Various other fuel types which are quite expensive, are harmful and difficult to handle. Biomass briquettes have a long shelf-life and can be produced in a variety of sizes.
Briquettes are pollution free and immeasurably cleaner than other alternative fuels - especially coal
Because Sulphur is not present.
Switching over to briquettes can be avoided by direct combustion of loose biomass association of dust pollution. Additionally, when burned, the briquettes do not pollute the environment.
Burned efficiently in a slow and controlled manner, Biomass briquettes cause high bulk density & lower ash and moisture content. To replace fossil fuels and charcoal completely, Utility Industries are majorly using biomass briquettes.
Biomass briquettes, as compared to the traditional fuels, are economically cheaper than black coal and more, because of their less purchase price.
Quality & Clean Fuel:
Biomass Briquettes is a very clean fuel & has stable quality. Being an idea fuel, biomass briquette is an eco-friendly in nature.
