Bagasse Pellet Mill

The residue of sugarcane juicing is a kind of fibrous pulp material. This fibrous residue is called bagasse. Three tones of bagasse will be produced when squeezing 10 tons of sugarcane. In the past sugarcane bagasse is worthless residue, but now it is an important biomass material which can be used for the production of ethanol and generation of energy. Besides, bagasse is also great raw material for making fuel pellets. Bagasse has been dried out of water, which can meet the criterion of pellet raw material. GEMCO Energy is offering bagasse pellet mill and complete bagasse pellet line. When building a bagasse pellet plant, you are suggested to build it near a sugar mill, so that you can easy get sufficient feedstock and save cost for transportation.

Bagasse Can be done into High-quality Pellet

The demand of fuel pellets is rising day by day, as the best pellet mill manufacture in China, GEMCO Energy has gradually found that making the best of sugarcane waste – bagasse can bring immense potential in biomass pellet industry. It is predicted by the European Biomass Association that until 2020, the European Union need to consume 100 million tons of biomass pellets fuel a year.

bagasse pellets

  • Make Bagasse Fuel Pellets for Burning: Bagasse pellets are mainly applied to industrial production and home warming in household stoves.
  • Make Bagasse Feed Pellets for Animal feeding: There are two types of bagasse feed pellets, one is hydrolyzed bagasse which is steam treated, the other is natural bagasse. Here is the formula of feedstock: 25% coffee husk, 25% peanut shell, 50% bagasse.

First of all, a pellet mill is needed. Before pelletizing, ensure the moisture content of bagasse materials are dried down to 10-12%. And grinding the raw material to powder with hammer mill (ø 5 mm hammer mill screen is suggested). After feeding the powder materials into your pellet mill, they will be compressed into pellets by the movement of a die and a set of rollers inside the mill. Specifically speaking, the bagasse powder will be squeezed by the rotary roller from the hole of the die into pellet. And then the cutter outside the mill will cut the granule in the appropriate length between 3 and 5 cm. For a complete bagasse pellet plant, the whole process can be categorized into crushing, drying, pelletizing, cooling and packaging. That is to say, aside from pellet mill, you will need to buy auxiliary machinery including crusher or hammer mill, dryer, cooler and packaging machine to build a total biomass pellet making production line.
