Biomass molding fuel fuels up future marketAs the global needs to energy grow increasing and dramatically and as the natural recourse are dying up, new challenges are confronted to the energy suppliers, enterprises and consumers. Therefore, it is urgent to find a new sustainable energy source which save us from “dying” and bring a“new, green and promising” future.? When we are driving up to crazy by the mad fuel price, biomass molding fuels come and begin to impact our life step by step. Will the biomass molding fuel save the world from energy crises?
What's biomass molding fuel?
Biomass molding fuel (shorted as “BMF”) is an energy made from biomass materials such as agricultural wastes i.e. straws, corn talks, peanut shells, grass, etc, wood residues, e.g. wood branches, leaves, sawdust, shaving, etc,It is produced by pellet machines or briquetteing machines, after going through several processing procedures, such as crushing, drying, mixing, molding or compressing, etc. And the final products are pellets, bars, and briquettes, which are used as a replacement for coal, gasoline gas and other traditional fossil fuels.
What are the heat values of Biomass molding fuel?
The calorific values of the ‘BMF” vary with the compositions of the raw biomass materials and the molding machines, i.e, the pellet machines, briquetting machine, etc. However, according to DIN 51731 / DIN Plus standard, one of the most acceptable pellet standards in the European pellets market, the heat value of the quality pellets is 17.5 MJ/kg, which means the calorific value of 2 - 3 kg BMF equals that of 1 kg oil fuel and 1 cubic meter of gas, and other parameters of DIN 51731 / DIN Plus pellets are as follow:
|Caloric value MJ/kg
|Moisture content %
|Unit density kg/m3
|DIN 51731 / DIN Plus
What are the advantages of Biomass molding fuel?
Biomass molding fuel as a kind of solid fuel is high in density, small in volume, secure and convenient is transportation and storage, sanitary and clean during combustion and having low impact on the environment.
How is the prospect of Biomass molding fuel?
According to annual biofuels report for 2013, released by European Union, the biomass pellet consumption has gotten up gradually in the major wood pellets users in the EU, such as UK, Denmark, the Netherlands, Sweden, Germany and Belgium. All the statistics in the reported proved the needs for biomass molding fuel and its markets are growing year by year and according to Pike Research’s analysis， it shows that the trade in biomass pellets will grow rapidly over the next decade.
Confront with the increasing price of fuels and the degrading of environment, Biomass molding fuels become the choice of energy source, which is widely used by personal and industrial energy consumers. And with the government policy incentive and subsidies, more and more enterprises turn to biomass molding fuel production business, up streaming industries, such as pellet and briquette machine manufacturing, biomass materials planting and transportation, and down streaming industries, involving with the production of stoves, furnaces, gasifiers, boilers, etc, which not only ease the energy and environmental pressure but also provide job opportunities and fuel economic growth.
As the machinery technology goes further and further, the production of pellet machines and briquettes machines in return stimulate the future development of the biomass molding fuel industry. Finally, the pellet consumer products also fuel up the pellet market. Therefore, it can be concluded in some way that the future of biomass molding fuel production has huge potential markets and prosperous future.
