Bagasse and bagasse pellet in China
Although the comprehensive utilization of bagasse in China has made a great progress, there are still some deficiencies.In China, the sugar industry scale is small and the distribution is wide. In some remote area, due to the transportation difficulties, the surplus bagasse could not be used effectively and reasonably, sometimes it even should to be discarded or landfill, that not only caused a second waste and environment pollution, but also affect the energy saving enthusiasm of the sugar factory in these area.At present, there is a common phenomenon in sugar mill. In the sugar making season,the production always need a lot of firewood. At the same time, there are also a large of bagasse the bagasse residue. The reason is that the sugarcane sugar mill is a seasonal production, before the start of production and shutdown, in order to ensure the safe operation of boiler , the boiler must be slow heating and cooling. In this process, coal and the bagasse which packaged out form the existing packing machine can not meet that requirement, so that must burn firewood to meet the production needs. That not only restricting the energy saving of sugar production, increase the production cost, but also causing the severe damage to the local ecological environment.Fresh bagasse is the irregular loose particles with small density, poor combustion. That is inconvenient to transportation, storage, and the uses of bagasse as biomass energy is restricted.
The uses of bagasse pellet in China
The sugarcane has short growth cycle, and rich production. The bagasse is a kind of clean, high quality and sustainable biomass energy, which is rich in fiber, less ash and no SO2. The bagasse pellet is a kind of physical transformation of bagasse biomass energy. After being dried and compressed, the density and durability of bagasse have been improved greatly, that greatly improves the quality of bagasse.
The bagasse pellet can be used for the following purposes
Replaced the firewood for the sugar mills to solve the contradiction that residue lots of bagasse on the one hand, and burn plenty of firewood on the other hand.Solved the uses of energy problem for the local residents. In China, most sugarcane sugar mills build in the remote areas, the sugarcane growers lives in there with less power and energy, what they can use as the household energy is the firewood. The bagasse pellet is convenient to transport and storage, which can give the local residents and sugarcane growers enough household energy and fuels, reduce the quantity demand of firewood, protect the ecological environment here, and realize the sustainable development of sugarcane planting.The bagasse pellet can further carbonized processed into charcoal pellet or charcoal briquette to meet the market demand for charcoal.
