The Rice Husk, also called rice hull, is the coating on a seed or grain of rice. It is formed from hard materials, including silica and lignin, to protect the seed during the growing season.
A Coconut Plantation is analogous to energy crop plantations, however coconut plantations are a source of wide variety of products, in addition to energy.
Oil Palm Trunk (OPT) is a solid waste obtained in large quantities after the felling of oil palm trees and is available year-round.
Empty Fruit Bunch (EFB) is a kind of biomass formed during the production process of palm oil.
Palm Kernel Shell (PKS) is a by-product of the palm oil industry but is fast becoming an important source of feedstock for biomass energy generation.
Palm Kernel Shell or PKS is ideal materials for making fuel pellets, but it is also relatively more difficult to be pelletizer than wood materials such as sawdust or wood chips.
For many years, rice husk has been an important resource of bioenergy. Due to its excellent combustion properties, rice husk has shown high potential and suitability as a fuel in the direct combustion systems at heat and power plants.
Woody biomass is an available residential and commercial source for space heating energy needs.
Torrefied biomass is known by several other names such as ‘man-made coal’ and ‘bio-coal’. Torrefied wood pellets repel moisture, therefore addressing one of the key issues with current wood pellet fuel.
Biomass torrefaction is a thermal process, which is similar to a mild form of pyrolysis at temperatures ranging from 250 to 320 °C to produce energy densified solid fuel.
Pellet fuels (or pellets) are biofuels made from compressed organic matter or biomass.
