Background Analysis: Cassava Waste Pellet Production Project in Nigeria

Setting up Cassava Waste Pellet Production Line in Nigeria

 Successful Cassava Starch Production Company  in Nigeria

Our Nigerian client operates a comprehensive cassava production value chain, encompassing large-scale cassava cultivation, continuous food-grade starch production, marketing, and sales distribution.
Each day, 200 tons of fresh cassava are delivered by farmers to the cassava starch processing plant. Here, the cassava undergoes washing, crushing, grinding into fine powder, and steam drying in boilers. The processed cassava starch is then packaged in 50 kg bags. This is a well-organized and successful cassava starch production enterprise.
However, the forward-thinking factory investor has noticed some serious issues that need to be addressed urgently:

  • Water Resource Management: With the increase in production capacity, the water usage is gradually increasing.

  • Wastewater & Cassava Waste Treatment: Untreated wastewater is discharged directly, causing pollution to the surrounding environment and resulting in significant losses of water and cassava slurry.

  • Boiler Upgrades: The existing old boilers are insufficient to meet the steam drying process's needs.


Project Design: Cassava Waste Residue Treatment & Wastewater Recycling Process

After on-site surveys and discussions, we provided clients with a comprehensive solution, including equipment selection, production process design, technical support, and other services. 

  •    Wastewater treatment and recycling:

500 m³ MBR wastewater treatment plant is used, which can treat 500 m³ of wastewater per day, which meets the standards of the Nigerian environmental regulations, can be discharged directly, and can be recycled for cassava washing.

  •    Cassava Residue Pellet Production Process:

The main equipment includes a 1 ton per hour cassava waste pellets production line. Through the collection, dewatering, and drying processes, the cassava slurry will be turned into animal feed ingredients or fuel pellets, which will increase the heat value and save costs.

  •    3 Tons Biomass Boiler:

Improved the efficiency of the biomass boiler, reduced the number of operators, and increased the starch production capacity to 1,000 tons per month.

ABC Machinery has rich experience and a professional team that can help you fully utilize all cassava waste, peels, and sawdust, economically utilizing them to improve production efficiency!

Cassava dregs are collected, dehydrated and dried for use as animal feed ingredients or mixed with sawdust to produce boiler fuel pellets. It can be used for boiler combustion in customer's cassava starch production plant. The following is the production process of cassava residue pellets:

1.Raw Material Screening and De-dusting:

To ensure continuous and efficient production, we have a series of equipment in our pellet production line. These include a rotary screen remover to remove oversize materials from the pellets and a strong magnetic iron remover to collect iron from cassava slurry, peels and sawdust.

2.Raw Material Drying Process:

After collection and de-watering the cassava pomace enters the drying stage. We used a rotary dryer with a capacity to process 1.5 tons per hour to reduce the moisture content of the cassava slurry from 60% to 15%. This process ensures the quality and suitability of the cassava waste residue.

VPM630 2-2.5 132 Ø630 13~20%

The dried cassava waste becomes an ideal raw material for making fuel pellets. We mix it with sawdust and mold it through a pelletizer. During the pelletizing process, the calorific value of the pellets can be increased to 4000 kcal, making them an ideal fuel for boilers, replacing fast-growing, low-density wet logs, thus saving the cost of purchasing logs.

Huge Market Potential for Cassava Dreg Pellets in Nigeria

Recently, the biomass pellet production market in Nigeria has a large potential for growth, mainly driven by government policies and increasing demand for renewable energy. Some of the key information about the biomass pellet production market in Nigeria is given below:

  • Supportive government policies: The Nigerian government is committed to promoting the use of renewable energy and has formulated policies and regulations to support the production and use of biomass energy.
