Analyses of Briquetting
A large quantity of agro residues are produced each year in many of the developing countries, such as rice husk, coffee husk, coir pith, jute sticks, bagasse, peanut shells, mustard stalks and cotton stalks. However, these residues were disposed in an inefficient way in the past, which would cause extensive pollution to the environment. Apart from the problems of transportation and storage, direct burning of these loose biomass materials is associated with very low thermal efficiency and widespread air pollution. Nowadays, briquetting of the biomass residues with briquette machine
could not only solve these problems, but make better use of these important energy resources.
Analysis of Raw Material Field for Briquetting
According to briquetting classification, the type of raw material exerts a huge impact on choosing of briquette machine. Generally, briquetting press can process two main kinds of feedstock, agricultural waste and forest residue. Therefore, raw material field for briquetting can be divided into several parts as follows:
Wheat production region: Western Europe (especially France), Eastern Europe and Central Europe, Siberia, Canada, the US, Australia, Argentina and Middle East.
Maize production field: the US, Southern Europe, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, India and France. In Africa, corn is planted in a scattered way. Across the world, three main corn belts include China, the US and Ukraine.
Paddy production area: East Asia (including China, Korea and Japan), Southeast Asia (mainly including Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, Myanmar and Thailand), South Asia (mainly India and Pakistan), the US and Brazil
Forestry: North America, Europe, Russia, Brazil and Southeast Asia
Analysis of composition and production
Biomass briquettes, mostly made of green waste and other organic materials, are commonly used for electricity generation, heating and cooking. The composition of briquettes varies by area due to the availability of raw materials. The raw materials are gathered and compressed into briquette in order to burn longer and make transportation of the goods easier. Biomass briquettes are made from agricultural waste and a replacement for fossil fuels such as oil or coal, and can be used to heat boiler in manufacturing plants. Biomass briquettes are a renewable source of energy and avoid adding fossil carbon to the atmosphere. Sawdust briquettes have developed over time with two distinct types: those with holes through the center, and those that are solid. Both types are classified as briquettes but are formed using different techniques. A solid briquette is manufactured using a piston press that compressed sandwiched layers of sawdust together. Briquettes with a hole are produced with a screw press. The hole is from the screw thread passing through the center, but it also increases the surface areas of the long and aids efficiency combustion. These briquettes are very different from charcoal because they do not have large concentrated of carbonaceous substances and added materials. Compared to fissile fuels, the briquettes produce low net total greenhouse gas emissions because the materials used are already a part of the carbon cycle.
Analysis of Briquette Market
Europe and North America not only are rich in raw material for briquetting, but also boast a bright competitive briquette market. Across the whole Europe, biomass briquettes and pellets enjoy more or less a parallel share of market but a promising and dramatically potential market is taking shape in Latin America and Africa since both of the regions are driven to fast development due to such a powerful economic engine.
Comparatively, Latin America possesses both raw material area and briquette market, while Africa does have lavish raw material supply for briquetting. In particular, Egypt and Algeria of North Africa and Ethiopia are the home to wheat plantation. And other African regions are mainly supported with maize growth. However, raw material in Africa has not been fully used yet. Straw and stalks are usually burnt directly so that the added value of those raw materials is still not realized ever.
Apart from that, Southeast Asian countries are raw material-oriented market while East Asia briquette-oriented. Australia just holds both of the advantages.
According to statistics of our research on briquette machine marketing, briquetting machines are pervaded across the US, Canada, Russia and Australia.
We sincerely hope that more and more raw material regions and briquette market area can attach more importance to energy transformation from fossil fuel to biomass and stand the huge opportunity of turning waste material into wealth on the one hand, and on the other, create an environment-friendly living condition for our posterity. As for now, the biomass market is developing in a rapid speed. Though the briquette market is not widely spread as the pellets market. In the future, the two basic form of biomass fuel can be developed as oil, gas, etc. The form of energy options are becoming more various. As a result, people would have more choices when facing with the energy using.
Briquette press marketing doesn’t remain a regional aim but a global opportunity to turn green garbage into green energy. Based upon the foregoing analyses, we hereby call on clients from the rest of the world to take action without further hesitation. Kingman(KMEC) is willing to make concerted efforts with you to achieve win-win cooperation!
Briquette machine plays a vital role in the smooth production of briquettes and any compromise on their quality to save on costs would be counter productive, which would also increase the initial costs. Therefore, it is quite important to choose the briquette machine with good quality. As a professional briquette machine manufacturer, briquette machine and briquette press
produced by KMEC have the advantages of stable performance, excellent quality and reasonable structure. If you need biomass briquette machine or want to get more information about the briquette machine, please feel free to contact us. We are looking forward to receive your inquiry about our briquette machine.
