The utilization of biomass for heat and power production is becoming increasingly important, due to the desire to reduce carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere.
Plant biomass is available in large quantities and can be utilized for sustainable heat and power production when used as fuel. Biomass pellets are a form of biomass fuel that is produced from agricultural residues (e.g. rice straws/ husks, sugarcane bagasse, corn stalks), Sawdust, and other wood wastes.
Pelletization involves compression of biomass against a die using a roller. The die usually has holes of fixed diameter size through which the biomass passes under high pressure. This results in significant savings on handling and transportation costs. The resultant pellets are extremely dense and can be produced with a low moisture content of below 10%. This allows them to be burned with very high combustion efficiency.
They also have a regular shape and small geometry that makes them easier to use in a broad range of pellet stoves such as the Phillips Stove and Mimimoto stoves. These are highly efficient stoves that have been developed in recent years.
