Fuel types

Weiss offers a wide scope of solutions that can deal with biomass fuel with moisture up to 60%.

Enormous heat resources can be hidden in alternative fuel types that may be regarded as waste. The increasing expenses, combined with safe storage and disposal of waste, make it attractive to think unconventionally. It is a challenge that merely is a question of disposal of waste within price-conscious solutions and it may result in a cost-efficient investment. Companies improve their fuel economy considerably when waste is transformed into process steam..

The use of biomass in heating systems is beneficial because using forest, urban, industrial residues and waste in electricity and heat production has less effect on the environment than traditional fossil fuels.  Carbon in biomass is part of the natural carbon cycle, whereas carbon in fossil fuels permanently adds carbon into environment and increases the carbon footprint.

Can it burn? 

To be able to get optimum efficiency of a biofuel combustion plant, it is important to know the composition of the fuel. That is crucial in the process of choosing the right combustion technology

  • Wood pellets, briquettes –  patent fuel – compressed of dust and chips from the wood processing and furniture industry, produced specially with a view to energy production
  • Shavings, wood chips, sawdust - these fuels primarily origin from the wood processing and furniture industry.

Wet wood fuel, 25-55 % moisture

  • Shavings – produced specially with a view to energy production (forestry).
  • Bark, sawdust -waste from forestry/wood processing industry.

Other bio fuel types, dry, 8-25 % moisture

  • Straw, husks, grain

Waste types, dry, 8-30 % moisture

  • Impure wood waste -crushed, contaminated wood waste from demolishing.
  • Household waste
  • Various process related, dry bio fuels/waste types - for instance soy, olive stone, paper waste, cotton, sun flower, non-food fast-growing grain, oat chaff, elephant grass, tobacco waste, potato flour, shea nuts, sun flower husks, fast-growing willow, cacao shells etc.

Waste types, wet, 60 % moisture

  • Various process-related wet bio fuels/waste types – for instance waste from grapes, instant coffee, rapeseed cakes, paper mass etc.
