Biomass renewable energy

Biomass renewable energy is the oldest source of energy used since our ancestors learned the secret of fire, yet, to many people, the most familiar forms of renewable energy are the wind and the sun.

What is Biomass?

Biomass is a renewable energy source not only because the energy in it comes from the sun, but also because biomass can re-grow over a relatively short period of time compared with the hundreds of millions of years that it took for fossil fuels to form. Through the process of photosynthesis, chlorophyll in plants captures the sun’s energy by converting carbon dioxide from the air and water from the ground into carbohydrates—complex compounds composed of carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. When these carbohydrates are burned, they turn back into carbon dioxide and water and release the energy they captured from the sun.

Examples of biomass material are:

1. Agricultural Residue

white briquettes, biomass briquettes
Biomass briquettes, very good for industrial heating purposes

1. Switchgrass
2. Cotton Gin Waste
3. Grape, Olive & Fruit Pomace
4. Oat Hulls
5. Coffee Bean Hulls and husks
6.  Coconut shell and husks
7. Nut Shells, Skins and Hulls
8. Corn Husk & Cobs
9. Wheat Mids
10. Bagasse
11. Macadamia shells
12. Croton husks

2. Wood Waste
1.    Construction & Demolition Material
2.    Medium Density Fiber Board (MDF)
3.    Sawdust and Sanding Dust
4.    Bark, Shavings, Cut-Offs
5.    Pulp & Paper Waste
6.    Pallets & Mulch

3. Animal & Municipal Waste
1.    Bedding
2.    Manure
3.    Litter
4.    Dairy Washdown
5.    Organic Municipal Solids
6.    Industrial/Commercial Waste
7.    Wood Crates & Pallets
8.    Paper/Cardboard
9.    Pulp

The applications for solid biomass fuels are numerous and the supply of biomass materials is seemingly endless.
Biomass Briquette Systems offers several engineered packages that will convert dry biomass material into solid fuel briquettes.
