Biomass briquettes and Coal

Get to know the briquette, a viable alternative and renewable to traditional fuels for use in furnaces, boilers, ovens, grills, ...



The briquette is a biofuel solid, a manufacturing process, made the compression of lignocellulosic residues, under pressure and high temperature.

To satisfy the conditions of the manufacture of the briquette, the residue needs to be according to percentage of moisture is acceptable, and particle size (granulometry).

“The briquetting is a way to be very effective to concentrate the available energy of biomass”.

In the manufacture of briquette, the raw materials can be: sawdust, others, rice husk, straw, corn cobs, bagasse of sugarcane, husk, cotton, bark, coffee, hay braquiaria among others.


The diameter of the briquette for burning in boilers, furnaces and fireplaces is 70 mm to 100 mm and length 250 mm to 400 mm.

1 ton of briquette corresponds to 6 m3 of firewood with humidity between 35% to 45%. Although variable, the briquettes made in Brazil has an apparent density of 1.0 t/m3 1.5 t/m3, a Calorific value Higher than 4000 kcal/kg to 4800 kcal/kg, a moisture between 6% to 10%, bulk density of 600 kg/m3 to 900kg/m3, the levels of volatile 81%, ash 1.2%, and carbon fixed by 18.8%.

In Brazil, the sawdust has a bulk density between 140 kg/m3 to 400 kg/m3, humidity of 15% to 55% wet and colors ranging light yellow originated Pinus sp dry up to the dark brown of the massaranduba wet.

The answer is simple.

To make the storage and transportation of products more effective and economical.

If the use of briquettes can replace fossil fuels we may also see great environmental advantages.

Briquette Composite

Are briquettes produced more than one type of waste. The production process is the same as that of briquettes simple, except for the inclusion of the phase mixing of the raw materials.

This similarity allows equate its production costs. With the production of briquettes compounds obtained weighted averages of their properties and compositions, which allows for a greater control of the quality of the briquettes and a direction of its characteristics according to its final use, with the maximum reduction in the introduction of substances additional.

Producing briquettes compounds prevents also the dependency of a single type raw material. In periods of shortage of waste of higher calorific value, has the option of replacement by other residues in the greatest amount, while maintaining the energy efficiency of the briquettes.


Tips of use of the briquettes

The form of the starting (ignition) can be the same one used by the system to firewood. The entire Boiler/furnace that burns wood, you can burn the BV - Briquette Plant.

It is not necessary special equipment, only to check the spacing between the grids.

Best Way to use the BV - Briquette Plant

Use in Application Dosage Other information of use
Boilers in General Only Briquette Plant Quantity Required Food more remains possible.
Boilers in General Briquette with Chip or wood commercial Desired percentage of each Product Feed the boiler with wood or chip and under the same add the Briquette so well distributed.
Kilns / furnaces and the like Briquette Plant Quantity Required Feed smaller amounts and more frequent.
Note: in This type of combustion, to pay attention to a greater need of oxygen in the grids.
Ovens of Pizzerias Briquette Plant Quantity Required Start the fire normally according to methods and customs.
Note: you Get greater income if it is done the fire under a grid of 6 to 10 cm in height.
Fireplaces Briquette Plant Quantity Required Start the fire normally according to methods and customs, rehydrate the fire every 50 minutes.
Note: you Get greater income if it is done the fire under a grill.
Barbecue grills Briquette Plant Quantity Required To use the Briquette in a barbecue place, the user needs to allow the entry of enough oxygen and start a fire with sticks (or any other way to start a fire), after that, the fire easy grip handle and the efficiency is higher than that of coal. You should keep the barbecue at a reasonable distance, as the roasting process occurs while the Briquette will be queimandoom flames clean.
