Prospects of Biomass Fuel Engery

Whilst wood and forestry residue offer primary heat sources in developing countries , the refined processing of waste wood to produce a specified biomass fuel for the commercial market, is becoming increasingly common in many wider parts of the world. Global demand for biomass pellets is expected to nearly double to 53 million tonnes by 2023, with approximately 60% of this requirement predicted to come from the EU and Asia. Biomass has never been such a hot topic…

Biomass is plant or animal material used for energy production, heat production, or in various industrial processes that use raw material of and for a range of products. It is often comprised of wood or forest residues, purposely grown energy crops, waste from food crops, horticulture, food processing, animal farming, or human waste from sewage plants. These natural materials have used the sun’s energy in the photosynthesis process to make their own food, which is stored in the plants as chemical energy. When the plants die, this chemical energy is trapped in the residue of the plant. The release of this trapped energy can be converted into biomass energy and biomass fuel, a renewable energy.

Biomass energy can be produced in two ways, either through anaerobic digestion process or through burning.

When waste is processed by anaerobic digestion, microorganisms break down or eat organic materials in the absence of oxygen. The remaining material is called digestate, which is a wet mixture that separates into a liquid and solid. During this process, biogas, a renewable energy source, is generated.

The other common option for biofuel production is through burning, usually done in furnace-style equipment.

Regardless of the choice of biofuel production, the material needs to be processed and shredded down to a small size in order to be further processed. With the use of Zhongan's versatile biomass pre-shredder, the material will be easily cut down to size and ready for the next step in biofuel production.
