Biomass is organic material that comes from plants and animals and can be used for energy production.
WHAT IS BIOMASS DRYING?
Although many substances such as agricultural crops and waste materials can be burned for fuel, the most common biomass used for fuel is wood and wood processing wastes.
Uzelac dryers dry wood chips, sawdust, and wood shavings to be used in the timber industry for such things as OSB, particleboard and wood pellets. In some installations, some of the dried wood from the Uzelac rotary dryer is brought back to a solid fuel burner and burned to heat the rotary dryer to dry additional wood waste, eliminating the need for a natural gas line for the rotary dryer.
In 2016 Uzelac added employees from the former M-E-C and opened a location in Neodesha, Kansas to add to their wood drying expertise.
Examples of Biomass we’ve dried in the past include
• Clary sage brush
• Wood chips
• Wood waste
• Bakery waste
• Fruit and vegetable waste
• Paper waste
• Sugar Cane Bagasse
• Rice hulls
MAJESTIC VALLEY PELLET
Majestic Valley Pellet reached out to Uzelac Industries to help modify their current wood chip drying system to increase its output.
Learn more about how Uzelac Industries helped Majestic Valley Pellet develop a drying system for drying wood chips down from 45% moisture content to 10% moisture content to allow for pelletizing.
