Briquette Benefits and Applications

Man’s need for fuel has always been unavoidable. People all around the world, whether from developed or developing countries, require fuel to live. Fuel is required for the preparation of fundamental requirements such as food and clean water. We usually get our energy from electricity and fossil fuels (such liquefied petroleum gas and kerosene). Firewood and charcoal are used by some nationalities. Other resources, on the other hand, have greater advantages and benefits than these traditional ones. Briquettes are one such fuel. Briquettes are combustible blocks of materials that are used as fuel. They’re made of shredded flammable materials that have been extruded or compressed. A binding agent, such as starch, may be required to keep the components together, however pressure may be sufficient in some cases. Charcoal fines, mineral char, sawdust, chaff from rice, peanut, and other crops, peat, and any biomass resources are some of the most frequent ingredients used to make briquettes.

Biomass Briquette Machine like Kütteladu compacts biomass waste into briquettes, reducing volume by approximately tenfold. As a result, rather of losing biomass waste, it makes them easy to transport. Briquettes are the best for a long distance because of their density, shape, and size. Its loading and unloading rates are actually rather low. Briquettes also have a higher heating value due to their low moisture content and high density. Briquette Machine creates briquettes that generate greater heat than other types of fuel. They have a high thermal value and a low ash level (2 to 10%), compared to coal, which has a 20 to 40% ash content. Furthermore, they are 40% more efficient than firewood and have a longer lifespan.

Briquettes reduce the volume of biomass waste by ten times, making it considerably easier to store and transport than loose biomass waste. Briquettes are ideal for long-distance shipping due to their form, size, and density. Similarly, loading and unloading are substantially less expensive and simpler. Briquettes are less expensive to create since they may be made at home from plant and animal wastes. As a result, they are marketed at reduced prices.
