Briquetting - Definition, glossary, details

Briquetting is a process of co-firing of coal with biomass briquettes. Briquette is a block of flammable material used as fuel to initiate and sustain fire. Briquettes can be made from biomass, or blends of biomass and coal-dust. The process of briquetting consists of the following steps: ·         Delivery and blend of biomass together with binding agent ·         Mixing and heating of the blend ·         Pressing of the blend to form briquettes ·         Transport of raw briquettes to be stored, during a period of few days, outside (under roof) in order to get mechanical hardness ·         Impregnation of the briquettes   The advantages of briquetting for boiler applications are:   ·         the rate of combustion can be comparable to that of coal ·         uniform combustion can be achieved ·         particulate emissions can be reduced ·         the storage properties are improved, and ·         Transportation, storage and feeding are more efficient.
