Recently, the RICHI 10t/h straw pellet production line was put into production in Brazil. In the production workshop of the project, you can see that employees are busy feeding agricultural and forestry waste such as sawdust, straw, and waste wood into the machine, which is made into biomass pellet fuel through professional processes such as crushing, mixing, extrusion, and drying.
The project mainly collects agricultural and forestry waste such as tobacco stems, agricultural corn straws, industrial pepper straws, and waste wood, and produces biomass pellet fuel through technical processing. The main component is composed of wood chips, which is ecological and environmentally friendly.
In this project, 50,000 tons of agricultural and forestry waste can be converted into 30,000 tons of biomass pellet fuel every year. Compared with coal, 1 ton of biomass pellet fuel can save hundreds of dollars in cost.
Due to its complete combustion and ecological and environmental protection, biomass pellet fuel is currently mainly used as a fuel for flue-cured tobacco production locally. It can also be blended with coal and is a very environmentally friendly and clean fuel. After data analysis, compared with coal, flue-cured tobacco baked with biomass pellet fuel can reduce the amount of tobacco tar by about 20%.
Now the client company has established a supply and marketing relationship with local tobacco farms.
It is worth mentioning that since the project was put into operation, it has solved the employment problem of more than 30 local farmers.
Brazil is the world’s largest tobacco leaf exporter and the second largest tobacco leaf producer. Its tobacco leaf planting and production operations are mainly operated by multinational tobacco companies. Therefore, Brazil’s tobacco leaf production technology level is relatively high, the market system is relatively sound, the production and supply elasticity is large, and the price It is relatively moderate and has a strong competitive advantage in the world tobacco leaf market.
In recent years, the planting area of tobacco leaves in Brazil has been about 376,000 hectares, and the number of tobacco farmers is about 186,000. The total production of tobacco leaves is about 700,000 tons, of which the production of flue-cured tobacco is about 600,000 tons, and the rest is burley tobacco and air-cured tobacco.
Employees of the project company were very surprised about processing tobacco waste into pellets: “I never thought that these waste materials can also be made into fuel. I am now working in the company and responsible for packaging the processed biofuel every day. I am not tired at work and can leave home without leaving the house.” Very close.” The employee came to work at the company at the beginning of this year and worked 8 hours a day, achieving stable employment right at home.
It is understood that in order to further achieve the goals of energy conservation and emission reduction, work reduction and efficiency improvement, and environmental protection, through the development of circular economy, and collaborative promotion of ecological environment protection, carbon emission reduction, and carbon neutrality, the company will complete the second phase in May next year.
The tobacco stems corn stalk pellet machine plant project mainly addresses the recycling of industrial and other wastes, such as the comprehensive utilization of waste grease, decomposing and degrading food waste, and processing it into pellet feed. Among them, equipment for the kitchen waste pellet feed production line will also be provided by Richi Machinery.
