Most Gambians rely on mainly wood fuels to cook with and charcoal because of which Gambia is at a very vulnerable point now, with the amount of forest left. Desertification and deforestation are great problems facing developing nations like Gambia. Adequate means of disposing wastes are also lacking, hence, converting them to other useful products… Continue reading Can fuel briquettes from groundnut shells save Gambia?
In the World’s least developed countries, solid fuel is the primary cooking fuel for over 80% of the population. Indoor air pollution ranks in the top four leading risk factors for death worldwide. Furthermore, urban demand for wood-based fuels such as charcoal drives unsustainable, large-scale deforestation. Ultimately, the byproducts of biomass combustion—which is often incomplete… Continue reading Waste to Energy: Cocoa Pod Husk Briquettes & Pellets
What are wood pellets? Wood pellets are a common type of biomass. Biomass is any biological material that can be used as fuel—including grass, corn, wood, and biogas as well as other forestry and agricultural residues. Wood pellets are compressed byproducts from the forest products industry, often woodchips and sawdust. What are wood pellets used… Continue reading Everything you need to know about wood pellets

Using clean, renewable energy is one of the most important actions we can take to reduce our impact on the environment. The world is constantly on the lookout for reliable, inexpensive and renewable forms of energy. Fossil fuels are non-renewable, that is, they draw on finite resources that will eventually dwindle, becoming too expensive or too environmentally damaging to retrieve. In… Continue reading Making the Switch – Biomass Power as the Main Energy Source
Wood pellet machinery has been a kind of highly efficient equipment in making use of biomass waste ever since its invention and popularization. It was firstly invented for making animal feed from soft crop waste as grass or straw. Later, pellet machinery was improved and able to process such hard biomasses like wood, bamboo, sawdust,… Continue reading Is Investing In A Used Pellet Mill A Good Idea?
