Pellets are Eco-friendly carbon neutral, Solid Biofuel.

  • Pellets are alternate to Charcoal and Firewood.
  • Pellets are small “nuggets” of compressed
    agricultural and forest waste including wood waste.

  • A wide variety of biomass can be utilized to make biopellets like cornstalks, straw, residual forest waste,
  • It is a refined and densified biomass fuel that allows
    remarkable consistency and burning efficiency at
    substantially lower particulate emissions.

    Globally, 2.5 billion people (40% of the world population) are dependent on solid biomass fuel to meet their daily demands for cooking and heating. Most of them utilize wood or charcoal in traditional ways causing significant impacts on the health of women, children and the environment.

    The paradigm shift of advanced biomass cooking is, to change both fuel and cookstove technology to arrive at a sustainable solution. Agricultural residues that are upgraded by pelletization, offer a fuel with many advantages: sustainable supply, local value added, low cost, climate neutral and easy use. Gasification cookstoves can use this fuel in a way that is two to three times as efficient as traditional cooking techniques and does not generate any smoke.

    Consequently, the transition to advanced biomass cooking can make significant contributions to several sustainable development goals including reducing poverty, improving health and the wellbeing of women, offering affordable clean energy while allowing for local economic development and protecting the climate by reducing deforestation and using a carbon neutral fuel. (SDGs 1,2,5,7,8,13 and 15).

    World Bioenergy Association initiated a Working Group on Advanced Biomass Cooking (ABC) bringing together actors from around the world that are engaged in Advanced Biomass Cooking in one way or another. It has also recently published the website Pellets.Africa and has selected the transition to advanced biomass cooking as a focal area of engagement.

    In this regard, WBA is pleased to invite you all to a new webinar series on advanced biomass cooking which starts with a webinar focused on gasification cooking technology. Companies building and marketing gasification cookstoves will present their products and experiences in the market.

    Raw Material for Bio-pellets agricultural
    : crop stalk and straw material, rice husk, cotton stalk, coffee husk, alfalfa straw, coconut shell, palm shell, sugarcane bagasse, etc. forestry residue: sawmill residue, branches, bark, leaves, etc. solid waste: junk paper, waste plastic, cardboard, etc.

    Biomass Pellets Application building heating:
    Biomass pellets can be used in a pellet stove or furnace to heating room at school, hospital, marketplace, company, etc. Cooking with biomass pellets is also available. Iindustrial boiler: Bio-pellets can partly(or entirely) replace coal or fossil fuel in co-firing heating for large-scale industrial operation to reduce the energy cost. power plants :Biomass pellets can be used in power plants to solve the problem of insufficient power supply. Animal bedding: Bio-pellets made of softwood is a kind of slap-up animal bedding to raising animal experience.

    Generally speaking, any materials can be made into biomass pellets as long as it will burn. The traditional materials for fuel pellets are wood chips, wood shavings, wood sawdust from the sawmill or forestry residue such as branches, bark, leaves, etc. Thus this kind of pellets are called wood pellets. With the skyrocketing increasing demand of biofuel pellets, people developed varieties of agri-waste to make biomass pellets. Corn stalk pellets, wheat straw pellets, rice husk pellets, coconut shell pellets, sugarcane bagasse pellets can all be listed at this sort of pellets. There are also paper pellets and plastic pellets made of municipal solid waste

    Biomass Pellets Making Procedure & Prospect: Biomass pellet is one kind of biofuel resources. Biofuel or biomass energy, refers to renewable energy sources such as solar energy, wind energy, etc which can both generate heat or electricity for human life and produce little damage to the environment at the same time. Bio-pellets is commonly making by biomass pellet machine with the biomass materials. Before turning into pellets, a series of processes, including crushing to required size, reducing water content,  pelletizing, cooling, packaging, are needed. After processing, the combustion and automation operation performance of biomass materials have been increased sharply. With features of high combustion value, uniform size, biofuel pellets have wide range application in boiler, stove, power plants, factories and household heating, etc. As the biomass energy is recognized by more and more people, bio-pellet shares an increasing percent in fuel market. That is to say, biomass pellet industry is a sunrise industry which is worth investing.
