Many biomass power plants across the United States run only on wood waste. They have processors that collect leftover sawdust and other wood waste and use those materials to manufacture wood pellets. The wood waste is granulated through a pan granulator or a rotating drum granulator. Product is sold in bulk or packaged and transported by rail, trucks and ships.
It’s important to control biomass dust control correctly when manufacturing and distributing wood pellets. Dust control processes can help you avoid dust explosions and unhealthy fugitive dust. These wood pellets used for fuel and power plants must have a carefully selected dust control agent to minimize safety risks. Dustech has the precise formulas that solve these issues.
Using wood pellets for fuel is becoming more common due to the rising population. Wood pellets are in high demand for fuel in Europe as a result of the stringent regulations for recycling of waste. As a nation’s population grows, the natural land diminishes and so do the plants and vegetation that help clean the air. These regulations call for wood waste to be used in order to avoid harmful pollution created by burning of petroleum based fuels.
Experts believe the United States will adopt most, if not all, of these strict regulations in coming years. Biomass use for fuel and power could be viable response to these regulations. According to some reports, biomass use could be sustainably expanded in the US. Dustech is ready to provide the best dust control options by offering environmentally sound and cost effective products.
