Equipment Necessary to Build a Biomass Manufacturing Pellet Plant

How to build a biomass pellet processing plant? Biomass pellet processing plants can be used to manufacture various wood pellets, such as sawdust, wood chips, shavings, straw, rice husks, peanut husks, forestry waste, biomass, etc. A complete pellet production line, from biomass raw material processing to final packaging of biomass pellets, including crushing, drying, pelletizing, cooling and packaging processes.

The following is the equipment required to build a biomass pellet processing plant for your reference. If you have any requirements, please contact us, our technical team will customize a professional project for you.

Raw material Pretreatment Section

  • Wood chipper: Processes large wood such as logs, branches and trunks into wood chips less than 3mm thick and 10-30mm long.
  • Hammer mill: pulverize the material into powder and make the raw material into a suitable size (below 3mm) for the pelletizing process.
  • Dryer: The dryer dries biomass raw materials with a humidity of more than 20% to ensure that the humidity of the raw materials is between 10% and 15%.

Pelletizing Section

Biomass pellet machine: The mixed raw materials are pressed into regular-shaped granules by high pressure between the main component drum and the mold. It is the soul of a complete biomass pellet manufacturing plant. According to the customer's raw material and production needs, it is very important to choose a suitable biomass pellet machine.


Commercial Biomass Pellet Machine

Packaging Section

The cooler is to store the biomass pellets produced by the pellet machine, and after the pellets are rapidly cooled, they are packaged by the pellet packaging machine.

Biomass Pellet Processing Market Has Broad Prospects

The global biomass pellets market has experienced significant growth over the past decade. From 2012 to 2018, the global biomass pellet market grew at an average annual rate of 11.6%, from about 19.5 million tons in 2012 to about 35.4 million tons in 2018. From 2017 to 2018 alone, biomass pellet production increased by 13.3%.

Biomass pellet production is a growing industry due to the increasing importance of renewable energy. The energy value of biomass particulate materials, such as agricultural products and forest waste, is becoming a common fuel after thickening. The table below shows historical demand and future demand forecasts for the Industrial Wood Pellets market. Total demand in 2019 is expected to be around 21.6 million tonnes. This is equivalent to the daily capacity of a 65,000-ton Panamax cargo ship. Note that this demand forecast is based on current policy.

Biomass Pellet Plants Can Process Many Different Raw Materials

The biomass pellet equipment can process a wide range of raw materials, such as sawdust, shavings, bark, sanding powder, waste wood, branch wood left after wood processing and wood-based panels; agricultural food crop residues straw; and all kinds of biomass raw materials that can be used for heat energy, without adding any binder, can be made into pellet fuel through the processing of biomass pellet machines. It can be seen that there are three main sources of raw materials for wood pellet machines, namely crop residues, forestry residues and urban domestic waste.

(1) The first is the food crop residues in agriculture: rice husks, crop residues include wheat straw, cotton straw, rice straw, corn straw, corn cob and some other cereal straws.

(2) The second is the residues of the forestry industry: forestry, wood, and furniture manufacturers will leave some scraps after production, such as shavings, sawdust, wood chips, leftovers, etc., which can be used as raw materials for biomass processing plants.

(3) The last is the raw material from the municipal solid waste: the municipal solid waste refers to the organic matter contained in the daily life and production of human beings.

Biomass Pellets Can Be Used As a New Type of Environmentally Friendly Energy

Biomass fuel pellets processed from crops and wood materials are non-polluting, renewable and high-quality energy sources with promising prospects. Because the shape is granule, the volume is compressed, the storage space is saved, and the transportation is also convenient, and the transportation cost is reduced.

Secondly, the combustion efficiency is high, it is easy to burn out, and the residual carbon content is small. Compared with coal, it has high volatile content and low ignition point, easy to ignite, and the combustion duration is greatly increased, which can be directly applied to coal-fired boilers. In addition, when biomass pellets are burned, the content of harmful gas components is extremely low, and the emission of harmful gas is small, which has environmental protection benefits. And the ash after burning can also be used directly as potash fertilizer, which can save a lot of money.(Related post:Low-Cost And High-Quality Sawdust Pellets For Sale At Factory Prices>>)
