Bagasse Is Good Choice to Make Bagasse Pellets for Fuel
Bagasse is the fibrous matter that remains after sugarcane or similar plants being crushed to extract their juice. It is used for providing energy or fuel for cogeneration plants or industry boiler, while there are still hundreds of tons bagasses which are not used. If those bagasses can be transformed intobagasse pellets, it will make great benefits and profits for local people to meet the growing demand of biomass pellets fuel on the market.
As energy shortage is increasingly serious, seeking renewable energy and alternative fuels becomes a hot topic. Being a kind of fuel with the longest history, biomass fuel receives its burgeoning again now. As is known to all, biomass pellets can be made from any kinds of biological residue or agro-wastes. Bagasse is the residue of sugarcane, which has been dried out of the water and meets the standard of biomass pellet raw material. Why bagasse as pellet raw material? It has a high energy content and burn quality. It’s also an existing agricultural byproduct that avoids impacting the food chain. In particular, bagasse is the appropriate available resource. The purpose of processing bagasse into useful bagasse pellets fuel is to cook or heat at home. If bagasse is left to rot, it would break down and release greenhouse gases, particularly methane, which is 20 percent more dangerous to the ozone layer than carbon dioxide. That’s why bagasse pellets can earn carbon credits for European utilities.
In order to make bagasse into fuel, a pellet mill is required. Firstly, the bagasse needs to be processed into powder, which will be conveyed into pellet mill. The raw material will be compressed into small granules between rollers and die through the die holes. Then the cutter cuts the exposed pellet into regular length. Besides pelletizing, there are still other processes including crushing,drying, cooling and packaging pellets. That is to say, besides pellet mill, other auxiliary accessories are needed together with crusher, dryer, cooler and packaging machine to make up a total pellet making production line.
