biomass briquetting processThe biomass briquetting process is quite a long process whereby briquettes are heated and made to produce electricity. The briquettes are mixed with coal so as to provide the heat which is supplied to the boilers at homes and also the industries for commercial purposes. When the boilers are heated, there is subsequent production of electricity from the steam in the boilers. The combination of briquettes and coal leads to a reduction in the amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the air. This happens when coal that is usually used to produce power in power plants is replaced with components that are contained in the carbon cycle process. The process of manufacturing briquetting usually involves three methods each depending on the methods used to dry out the biomass. The methods are carbonization, torrefaction or pyrolysis of varying degrees. Carbonization and torrefaction are the most preferred means of biomass drying.
The biomass briquetting process also involves the gathering and compressing of the raw materials to form the briquettes. The briquettes have varying compositions according to areas as some areas have the raw materials in abundance. The briquettes are compressed so as to enable them burn for a long time and also to make work easier during transportation. Briquettes vary from coal in that they have huge concentrations of carbonaceous components and many other materials that are added to it
