Biomass is biological material from living, or recently living organisms, most often referring to plants or plant-derived materials. As a renewable energy resource, biomass can either be used directly, or indirectly — once or converted into another type of energy product such as biofuel.
Biomass can be converted to energy in three ways: thermal conversion, chemical conversion, and biochemical conversion.
Historically, humans have harnessed biomass-derived energy products since the time when people began burning wood to make fire. In modern times, the term can be referred to in two meanings. In the first sense, biomass is plant matter used either to generate electricity(via steam turbines or gasifiers), or to produce heat (via direct combustion
Biomass-derived energy also holds the promise of reducing carbon dioxide emissions, a significant contributor to global warming, as carbon dioxide acts as a “greenhouse” gas by trapping heat absorbed by the earth from the sun. Although the burning of biomass releases as much carbon dioxide as the burning of fossil fuels, biomass burning does not release “new carbon” into the atmosphere, which the burning of fossil fuels does This is because carbon dioxide released from fossil fuels was carbon that was fixated via photosynthesis millions of years ago that had been locked in the hydrocarbons of fossil fuels.
We can make briquettes from groundnut shell, sugarcane residue, saw dust, bamboo dust, wood Chippings, coffee husk, palm husk, soybean husk, paddy straw, wheat straw, sunflower stalk, cotton stalks, mustard stalk, tobacco waste, animal / poultry waste, jute waste, almond shells, cashew shells, These briquettes are eco-friendly, do not cause any pollution, help in waste control, and very cost effective, we can make briquettes of exact moisture content as needed.
Pellets are prepared from coal using unique formula. These are environment friendly and very cost effective as compared to conventional coal or charcoal.
