Currently a new method of producing pellets of high quality – torrefaction (roasting, drying) is gaining popularity in bioenergy. Torrefaction is a "soft" pyrolysis – the heating of biomass without oxygen at temperatures 200 – 300°C and atmospheric pressure.
Nowadays charcoal is more often used in industry and other fields of national economy. Charcoal can be used in industry as reducing agent.
The distinguishing feature of the high-quality charcoal is the shiny black color slightly with a blue tint. Also on the cut, the structure of the wood is usually well preserved, and the entire surface is covered with cracks. Another characteristic is a ringing sound that produces coal at impact. This kind of coal is considered high quality.
The application of Biochar in the agricultural industry is gaining new momentum every year. More and more attention has been paid by entrepreneurs of the agricultural industry to restoration of the composition of the soil, and they are seeking for safe solutions of the problem of its depletion.
The charcoal is often perceived as an indispensable tool mainly in those situations when you need to build a fire in the fireplace, to fry a shish kebab on the grill or cook meat on the grill. However, there are much more different ways to use charcoal even in everyday life. We want to present to Your attention five of the most interesting of them.
It is well-known fact that the taste of food cooked on the grill not only depends on various seasonings and marinades, but also on the type of used firewood or charcoal. Today there is a wide variety of charcoal from different species of trees, both in the form of briquettes and in loose form, packaged in paper or plastic bags.
There are many different types of equipment for pyrolysis of wood. Some of them were popular earlier, but today they have already lost their relevance due to the fact that new and more effective equipment began to appear.
With the help of this presentation you will learn some facts about the traditional charcoal production.
Wood fuel briquettes - an environmentally friendly fuel that is widely used around the world for heating of private facilities and in industrial boiler factories.The briquettes are produced using special presses, without the use of binders, the role of which the lignin, released in the process of briquetting, performs.
Pyrolysis is the heating of the carbon-containing raw material with a lack or absence of oxygen. The wood pyrolysis takes place in the charcoal kiln CK-4 EURO at specified temperatures. Charcoal of the required quality and a large quantity of pyrolysis gas are formed depending on the chosen temperature mode.
