Biofuel sales increase

When making pellets the improvement of energy efficiency and robustness Technological are two factors that equipment suppliers offer in order to maintain ENplus standards.

New equipment to standardize splinters are prevailing among suppliers. Offer the fuel more economical and abundant is not at odds with quality, as evidenced by BIOMASUD suppliers.

The wood, economic and sustainable, also requires a process of handling, cleaning, cutting and drying to reach the consumer and avoid the classic emission problems in traditional open homes.


New Regional Biomass Logistics Center, a key part of the Bosques del Vallès fire prevention project based on the boosting of forest biomass. The Logistics Center of Biomass is the center of operations of the Regional Service of Forest Biomass and it allows to close the circle of the project of forest exploitation for the obtaining of spill that feeds the boilers of biomass of the region. Thus, a key equipment for obtaining clean energy and proximity and to ensure forest management that reduces the risk of fire.
Ingelia Euskadi, through a hydrothermal carbonization process (HTC) of biomass, obtains a solid biofuel of high PCI (calorific value), low humidity, high combustion efficiency and without CO2 emission quotas from different types of organic matter . According to official data, the firm intends to carry out in Zierbena a total investment of 4.230.000 euros from which the Basque Government will contribute 423.000, which, in turn, will serve to create 12 new jobs.

The biofuel of the future will probably be hydrogen. The H2 is the gas with the highest energy density per unit mass, it has a clean combustion, because it only generates water; and its use can be either for the production of electricity in fuel cells or for direct combustion. It is undeniable that it also has other associated problems and difficulties, but will be overcome as its production and consumption expand.
Luz Pardo, President of APROPELLETS, answers three questions: How is the pellet industry today? The pellet sector at European level has seen its growth has not been as expected. In the 2014-2018 period, more significant growth in pellet consumption was expected. This has been due, above all, to the warm winters and the fall in the prices of fossil fuels.
The KAPPA96 pelletizer, compact, complete, at low cost and for large productions, allows to convert a product / mixture in the form of flour or in the form of small flakes, into pellets. It consists mainly of a dispenser, a paddle conditioner for the mixing and to add liquid, a conduit for introducing the product into the machine and the pelletizer. The KAPPA96 is characterized by:
The FFS bagger stands out because it guarantees a continuous production by automating the three processes of bagging: forming with a thermosealable film reel, filling by volume or weight and sealing the bag from a flat reel.
Boga Técnica proposes a new palletizing solution with an anthropomorphic robot of 6 axes and head with 3 functions: open the box and close the base; collect the briquettes and insert them inside the box and, finally, with the box already closed at the top, deposit it in its corresponding pallet. In this way, three processes are reduced to one and the cost of the whole operation is considerably lower. More information at www.bogatecnica.com
