Biomass Briquettes

In India, Gujarat is the leading state in briquette production. There are more than 150 biomass briquette manufacturers in the state and all of them use binder less biomass briquette machines.
Biomass briquettes are best alternative to coal, lignite and charcoal in thermal application & replace fossil fuels like gas, kerosene, diesel etc… and pellet machine. It is also known as “White Coal.” Biomass briquettes are biodegradable, none polluting, renewable in nature, non-conventional source of energy and economical. Biomass briquettes have high specific density (1200Kg/m3) and bulk density (800 Kg/m3) compared to 60 to 180 Kg/m3 of loose biomass.

Benefits of Biomass Briquettes

  • Saving in Transportation, Storage and Maintain
  • Reduction of waste volume by up to 90 %. Compacting biomass waste into briquettes increases bulk density of biomass , thus storage, transportation & maintaining costs reduces by almost 10 times, making it easy to store and transport than fossil fuels. Other expensive fuel types quite difficult to handle and are harmful. Biomass briquettes can be produced in a variety of sizes and have a long shelf-life.

  • Pollution
  • Briquettes are immeasurably cleaner and pollution free than the other fuel alternatives - especially coal! Because it does not contain Sulphur.
    Dust pollution associated with direct combustion of loose biomass can be avoided switching over to briquettes. Moreover briquette does not pollute when it burns.

  • Efficiency
  • Biomass briquettes are burn in a controlled manner, slow and efficiently cause of lower moisture and ash content & high bulk density. More and more, utility Industries are using biomass briquettes to completely replace charcoal and fossil fuels.

  • Cost
  • The purchase price of biomass briquettes is less than traditional fuels .Economically cheaper than black coal.

  • Quality & Clean Fuel
  • Biomass Briquettes has stable quality & it is very clean fuel. Biomass briquette is an ideal fuel due to its eco friendly features.
