Briquetting is a process that biomass is compressed under
high pressure and high temperature.
The self bonding of biomass to form a briquette involves
the thermo-plastic flow of the biomass. The lignin content
that occurs naturally in biomass is liberated under high
pressure and temperature. Lignin serves as the glue in the
briquetting process, thus binding,compressing the biomss
to form into high density briquettes.
During this process, no binder need to be used. So the ouput
briquette is a type of clean and green fuel that is ideal
for use in furnaces, boilers and open fires. The density
of the briquettes is 1100~1300kg/m.
