They are uniform chunks of charcoal that are most often used in barbecue grills. In the present times, BBQ Briquettes are not only made from charcoal but also from porcelain, ceramic and other materials. They are made for a specific type of grill for BBQ enthusiasts thus creating a larger customer base. They are used as a fuel source for BBQ grills and are known for their dependability. They are inexpensive and efficient for outdoor grilling purposes. The primary ingredients of these briquettes are char (traditional charcoal) and coal. These two ingredients are responsible for briquette’s ability to light easily and give wood smoke flavor other than producing high temperature and long lasting fire. The best raw material used to make traditional charcoal are from different types of wood such as birch, hard maple and oak trees. They are also made from organic materials like fruit pits and nut shells. Apart from these, a binding agent such as starch made from corn or wheat, an accelerant (such as nitrate) and an ash-whitening agent (such as lime) are also required. Charcoal briquettes are great to use as they provide a hot, long-lasting, virtually smokeless fire. Charcoal grills use either charcoal briquettes or natural charcoal as their fuel source. The charcoal, when burned, will transform into embers radiating the heat necessary to cook food. A good BBQ Briquette is recognized by uniformity in its size, its burn rate, how much heat it can create, leaves no ash and smoke and quality.
White coal is a form of fuel produced by drying chopped wood over a fire. It differs from charcoal which is carbonized wood. IT is basically made from agricultural and forest waste. It produces more heat than green wood but less than charcoal and thus prevents the lead evaporating. White coal could be use mixed with charcoal for other industrial uses. White Coal is used as a substitute for other fuels like coal, wood log and petroleum. Its higher density and higher carbon value makes it more inflammable.
Properties of white coal
- Moisture contents nil because white coal is totally dry.
- Consistent quality.
- No pollution as it does not emit any sulphur or phosphorous chemicals.
- Cheaper rates as against other fuels such as coal and fire wood.
- High caloric value.
- Low ash contents.
- Easy to use due to its proper size for handing.
Briquette Pellet is a renewable, cost effective and clean alternative to fossil fuels that are used for heating purposes domestically and industrially. It is a biomass product made from recycled wastes. It converts innumerable amount of organic wastes into a valuable source of energy. Pellets are made from dry sawdust compressed under high pressure with marginal moisture content. They provide more heat, burns longer and are a cleaner product. They use very low level of binder or nothing at all. Wood pellets are dry, clean and consistent fuel. They are proving to be very popular alternative to fossil fuel on domestic scales and for small and medium sized industries. In industries, it is the best alternative to fuel old coal boilers. They take less storage space, leaves no ash, easier to handle and are environment friendly fuels.
Wood pallets quality is depend on the standard of manufacturing. Pallets of poor quality have lower energy density, leaves higher amount of ash and other contaminants other than higher moisture content.
Benefits of Pellets:
- Pellet distribution costs less than the cost of distributing wood chips.
- Pellet stoves have extremely low particulate emissions due to their high burn efficiency and the density of the fuel
- Direct thermal conversion of pellets has an efficiency level of approximately 80%.
Biomass briquettes are a bio-fuel substitute to coal and charcoal. They can be used to heat industrial boilers to generate electricity and heat either as an alternative to coal or as its supplement reducing the emission of carbon dioxide and continuing the carbon cycle.
SMGK Green Fuels is dedicated to being natural, environment friendly and recycle in the most innovative and unimaginable ways. We are proud to introduce an addition to the already existing bio-fuels around the world. Though Briquette in various forms has been around for a while and has gained worldwide acceptance in both industrial and household usage, we would like to introduce a type of briquette made from agricultural residue. Creating briquette from the agricultural food residue is not only environment friendly but also very cost effective as compared to fuels like coal and oil. Briquette can be used as an effective alternative to industrial fuels like coal, wood, bricks and lignite for electricity and heat generation. The main advantages of biomass briquette are that it is a renewable source of energy, natural (without any binders), non polluting and very economical. It is light-weighted, cost effective and requires less storage area as compared to other industrial fuels. Due to its low moisture and higher density nature, it gives much higher boiler efficiency in comparison to wood and charcoal.
Advantages of Briquette Usage:
Increased usage of biomass briquette in industries has led to tremendous decrease in pollution. As compared to other fuels largely used, briquette has following advantages:
- It is eco-friendly & a renewable source of energy
- It has high burning efficiency due to the low moisture.
- It is economical and cheaper than other solid fuels i.e. coal & wood.
- It has higher thermal calorific value as compared to other fossil fuels.
- It is pollution free because there is no sulfur and smoke or any hazardous material.
- It gives lower ash content.
- Its combustion is more uniform compared to other coal.
Biogas refers to a gas produced by the biological breakdown of organic matter in the absence of oxygen. Organic waste such as dead plant and animal material and kitchen waste can be converted into a gaseous fuel called biogas. Biogas is generated when bacteria degrade biological material in the absence of oxygen, in a process known as anaerobic digestion which is primarily a mixture of Methane (CH4) and Carbonic Gas (CO2). However the name “biogas” gathers a large variety of gases resulting from specific treatment processes, starting from various organic wastes – industries, animal or domestic origin waste.
SMGK uses waste water to generate bio-gas for re-use purposes. Waste water is the main source of methane which in turn is one of the main ingredients for producing bio-gas. We collect this waste water and send it to our generators which are again run by gas in result producing electricity. We are currently working towards replacing 70% of its fuels by bio-gas. Biogas provides a clean source of renewable energy from organic wastes that can replace fossil fuel to some extent.
