Wood pellets are after coal, oil and natural gas to become the fourth largest energy. Experts predict that the wood pellets is an important part of the future. In the next century, wood pellets are likely to be 40% sustainable energy system account for the total fuel consumption.
As economy continues to develop, the growing problem of energy shortage. In order to solve the energy crisis and reduce pollution of the environment, protect the ecological environment, it is particularly important to the development and utilization of biomass energy. Wood pellets crops such as straw, rice husk, sawdust and other agricultural waste first through a wooden hammer mill grinding, and then into the wooden granulator to form the solid wood pellets. Then, they can be used as direct fuel combustion.
In other countries, the wood pellet machine has matured, such as Denmark, Germany, Belgium, United States, Japanand other countries have realized the commercialization process, its products are mainly used in furnaces, boilers, and power generation. Currently, our research and development of wood pellet machine have also been used in the production. Pollutant emissions are lower than coal, it is an efficient, clean, renewable energy, at the same time, it is very prominent use machining feed pellet.
In the present, the main rod shape biomass molding, blocks and granular. The shape of multi-fuel processing method is the traditional mode of production, it has some problems, like wide high energy consumption, serious wear, short life.
In order to solve the above problems, we have the following ways
1. Government support. The government should give some financial subsidies, the company in order to reduce product cost.
2. Introduction of foreign advanced equipment. Take the essence, to the dregs, the formation of industrial production.
3. Increase in research investment. Active research and development of new technology, new equipment, reduce energy consumption, lower production costs.
Wood pellets has a huge market potential in the near future. The first to seize the market will become the ultimate winner.
