1. Biomass Products
The consumption choices reflect the global trend to become more environmentally responsible. Choosing products that have a limited impact on the environment is the key driving factor behind the development of more sustainable products. Briquetting and pelletizing are ways to convert loose olive biomass residues into high density blocks.
The Olivketts Biomass Briquettes for heating appliences are a made entirely of natural, 100% sustainable materials. Our high density, RUF biomass briquettes light quickly and burn steadily for a up to 8 hours. They are easy to store due to their uniform shape and size and clean to handle. The heating briquettes can be used in all kind of wood log burning appliances, heating appliences, stoves and open fireplaces. Biomass briquettes are more efficient than firewood.
The Olivketts Charcoal Briquettes for grilling and BBQ are a made entirely of natural, 100% sustainable raw-materials. Why try? It is a flexible grill fuel that grants you the fun and feel of natural fire but gives you the leisure and ease of having control over the cooking process. Natural briquettes are new type of barbecue fuel that burn clean and burn the same this Sunday as it did last Sunday.
2. Industrial Eco Fuels
Energy costs are one of the biggest expenses for industrial facilities, factories. Co-combustion or co-firing means using solid biomass as a partial substitute fuel (3% to 20% of total fuel weight) in the existing coal boilers to produce power. Biomass co-firing offers the possibility for renewable energy generation and a potential for net reduction in CO2 emissions without substantially increasing capital costs and infrastructure investments.
The Olive biomass is a renewable, widely available, carbon-neutral biomass fuel that has exceptional heat potential. Olive cake biomass is very efficient, in terms of energy, cost and environmental impact.The solid olive residue is composed of olive pits and dried olive cake/husk. Olive biomass releases considerable energy during its combustion and its calorific value largely exceeds that of other wood or agricultural biomass.
Charcoal is the blackish residue consisting of mostly carbon ( 85% to 98% ) obtained by removing water and other volatile constituents from wood or other biomass substances. Char is basically the wood or biomass that has everything but the carbon removed from it. Charcoal briquettes are made from the char dust. To form the briquettes the charcoal is pulverized into dust and it is compressed under high pressure to form briquettes.
