Frequently Asked Questions

There are some basic questions which might still be pondering around in your mind about the product. We have tried to summarise all the common questions with short answers here and will keep updating the same as we come across more of frequent questions.


What is BioCoal?


BioCoal is a type of fuel which can be used as a replacement for Black Coal, Wood, Oil, Gas all used as fuel. BioCoal is enviornmental friendly product made out of natural waste and is also known as "BioCoal Briquettes".


What is the main use of Briquettes?


Briquettes are widely used for any Thermal application where coal can be utilize i.e. steam generation in boilers, heating purpose etc. Briquettes can replace following conventional fuels that are used in mass quantities:. Diesel
Kerosene
Furnace Oil
Lignite
Coal
Firewood


What is calorific value of Briquette?


The Calorific Value of the Finished Briquettes is Approx 4000 K.cal/Kg. The Calorific Value may varies depends on the different RM used. It can be replace any kind of Coal like Lignite, Fire wood, Steam Coal etc.


Who can use BioCoal?


Any industry using boilers should use BioCoal if there required Caloriphic Value is 3500-5000. For the industries needing more Kcal from the BioCoal will need to make necessarry changes to their boilers.


What is the ash content remain in Briquetting Plant?


Very low ash content as low as 2 to 5% compared to 20% to 40% in coal.


What is the shape of finished Briquettes?


The Shape of the finished Briquettes would be cylindrical in shape with 90 mm diameter and length would be approx. 6 inches to 1 ft.


What are the advantages of using Briquettes compared to other solid fuels?


Briquettes are cheaper than coal.
Oil, coal or lignite, once used, cannot be replaced.
There is no sulfur in Briquettes, thus does not pollutes the environment.
Biomass briquettes have a higher practical thermal value
Briquettes have much lower ash content (2-10% as compared to 20-40% in coal).
Combustion is more uniform compared to coal due to uniform diameter.
Briquettes give much higher boiler efficiency because of low moisture and higher density.
Briquettes, are easy to store, pack and hygienic to handle.


Finished product can be stored for long?


Yes, only avoid contact with Water & Fire.


A Briquette is an Ideal Fuel because it...


is Eco friendly & Renewable Energy fuel.
is Economical and cheaper than other solid fuels i.e. coal & wood.
has high thermal calorific value around 4000 Kcal/Kg.
is pollution free because there is no sulfur or any hazardous material.
has lower ash content 2 to 5%. There is no fly ash when burn.
provides consistent high burning efficiency due to the low moisture.
contains high density & Higher Fix Carbon value.
is easy for transportation, feeding & combustion due to unique shape.
is more uniform in combustion compared to other coal.
