As the population of the earth continues to grow, the amount of food we need to produce to survive does at the same time, and then some. Millions of acres of land worldwide are planted in crops, from corn, wheat, and rice, to coconuts, oil palms, and avocados, there are crops growing everywhere. Of course this is a good thing, how else would all of us be able to eat? However, the untold story, is that there are also billions of tons of leftover biomass waste from nearly every crop planted. The seeds from avocados, cherries, and olives to the husks from rice, corn, and wheat, all of that waste needs to be handled in some way. In the past, much of it was hauled to the land fills but they are now clogged to overflowing with household waste. Agricultural waste can be measured in thousands of tons from just one farm in just one year and there isn’t enough room in the landfills any longer. However, now there are biomass waste recycling machines that promise to be able to handle the load and recycle all of the agricultural waste we have. Here’s how they work.
5 Billion Metric Tons Of Waste Biomass Is Created Yearly
Using the right procedures, it’s possible to turn all of that waste into useful energy that can be used in place of fossil fuels. Since the agricultural waste is a renewable resource, it doesn’t impact the planet in the same way that fossil fuels that have been buried for millions of years do. In addition to that, when biomass rots, it create methane, which is a much stronger global warming contributor than carbon dioxide.
Using multiple waste biochar making machine situated near the supply of agricultural biomass can considerably cut down on the transportation costs of hauling the waste products. This is especially important with large crops, such as rice, coconut shells, sawdust, or olive seeds since the waste is concentrated at the production plant rather than in the fields. When it comes to other wastes that have to be hauled from the fields there are typically more costs.
In the end, a suitable waste carbonization plant can reduce all of the agricultural waste from a huge production plant into useable and sellable charcoal briquettes. These briquettes can be used in many countries as fuel for cooking stoves, thus saving the nearby forests from constant deforestation and provide a cleaner fuel that emits less pollutants due to the higher purity of the charcoal. In many cases, the briquettes are far cheaper than the cost of “homemade” briquettes that are made by hand and cut from the local forests.
There are even wood stoves that are made specifically to run on these briquettes that can be used to heat homes, businesses, barns, and factories in order to make use of the inexpensive fuel source.
The use of carbonization plants from Beston Machinery (China) is becoming more common each day as the news gets out about the money to be saved versus hauling the waste to the landfill. Local residents near a plant can benefit from the cheap fuel source and cut back on electricity or propane use during cooking. In all respects, the carbon plants are a win-win for the earth, humans, and farmers at once.
