WHAT BUSINESSES CAN USE BIOMASS TECHNOLOGY?
All businesses, public or private entities that require: HOT AIR, HOT WATER, or STEAM, can use biomass combustion technologies that burn dried crude olive cake.
Businesses that require Hot Air can use hot-air generators that work with biomass as solid fuel. In this manner, the hot air is used for:
• Heating of premises, such as:
- Poultry farms
- Industrial areas
- Livestock farms, etc.
Improved poultry health is achieved with reduced propane usage. With each gallon of propane burned, almost a gallon of water is released into the air, creating excess humidity that contributes to an increase in ammonia, a rise in poultry house pathogens and disease transmission. Additionally, such biomass hot-air generators help eliminate darkling beetles, further improving poultry health and reducing poultry house damage.
A study at Auburn University confirmed that dry heat, such as that achieved by biomass heat, reduces ammonia in the poultry house by an average of 15 ppm, which results in 80% improvement in bird mortality, increased bird weight of 60 gram/bird and a 1.2% improvement in feed conversion rate.
• Drying purposes, such as:
Whether it is the drying of grains, animal food, salt, or other products, chances are the product contains too much moisture. The excess moisture can be removed by the introduction of heat. Handling temperature-sensitive products requires a high degree of care and attention, and the type of drying technology will be based on the type of your product.
Businesses that require hot water can use boilers that run with biomass as solid fuel, in order to produce the hot water needed. Hot water is used in different processes:
- • Heating agricultural premises such as: dairy producing factories, poultry farms, livestock farms etc.
- • Heating commercial buildings such as: office buildings, hotels, shopping malls, retail stores, warehouses, garages, etc.
- • Heating for industrial processes
- • Heating residential and public buildings such as housing buildings, prisons, hospitals, schools, nurseries, kindergartens, churches, etc.
- • Heating leisure destinations, such as SPAs, swimming pools, enclosed playing fields etc.
- • Drying processes, such as salt production, meat processing, curing etc.
- • Cleaning, disinfection, sterilisation, sanitation processes etc.
Businesses that require steam for industrial processes can use boilers that run with biomass as solid fuel.
