Do you know forest residues, which are always considered as waste, have high potential if processed properly? Yes, this is true.
Forests residues like inferior quality trees, chucks, tree tops and limbs, also termed as woody biomass can be effectively used as energy source.
And the process used for the same is called briquetting. This is nothing but a waste to value creation by transforming the forest residues into fuel logs through briquette machines. Researchers strive hard to find new and advanced technologies to convert waste into high-quality fuel source, which is also beneficial for the environment.
The experts take an opportunity to creatively use waste material for the benefit of environment, to save money and to preserve natural resources. They set up briquetting plants near forests or other waste creation sites to save money spent on transportation of the raw material and final production called briquettes.
Environment stakeholders come up with innovative programs to educate people on right use of waste material created from biomass sources and forest residues. They explain everything about briquetting plant: the benefits, set up cost, uses of briquettes, right technique and benefits of the same for the environment as well as for users.
Though there are ample choices to recycle when it comes to forestry waste, the majorly used materials include trees, braches, access mats, wooden cable spools, stumps, crates, pallets and wooden blocks, to name a few.
No matter which material you recycle, make sure all of them have required moisture level for proper density. And if it has higher moisture, it is better to dry the raw material before putting in the briquetting machine for processing.
Bottom line: Biomass energy created by converting forest residues into briquettes have high potential and can easily replace oil, gas and coal. These make effective energy source in many applications like brick kilns, domestic kitchens, industrial furnaces, barbeque etc. Governments all across the world are supporting the technique by offering attractive subsidiaries on setting up briquetting plants and on the revenues generated from briquetting business.
