Making Pellet Fuel from Rice Husk
Rice husk, as the byproduct of rice processing, are plentiful in the whole world, but most of them are discarded as waste materials or burnt directly. It is not easy to transport and store the rice husk due to its low density. As one of the most common agricultural wastes, rice husk now can be made into biomass pellets for alternative usages.
Advantages of Rice Husk Pellets
The demand for biomass pellets have expanded in recent years, and rice husk pellets also have a broad market. When rice husks are pressed into pellets, the bulk density is greatly increased, which makes it convenient for transportation and storage in large quantity. Besides, biomass pellets made from rice husk can be burn efficiently and sufficiently. It can discharge as high calorific value as traditional fuels. Since the rice husk pellets have no visible smoke at all during the burning, many people choose them for cooking or heating in winter.
Also, rice husk pellets are cleaner when burnt. Before made into pellets, rice husks leave a 15-16% ash when burnt. After they become pellets, the ash content is only around 6-7%. Therefore, rice husk pellets bring both economic and social benefits for farmers. For most people, rice husk and pellet fuel may have no relationship to each other. Actually, with a rice husk pelletizing machine, it can be realized easily.

Rice husk pellet mill designed by us is the ideal one that you deserve it. It can make high quality rice husk pellets without putting any additives. There is little effort you have to make, the automatic operation simplifies procedures. With proper size and moisture content of rice husks, you just need to put them into the machine, the main components rollers and die will compress the rice husks into die holes. Then pellets will be shaped and cut into uniform size. Additionally, compared with other raw materials for making pellets, rice husks do not need to be crushed when pelletizing, and the low moisture content of rice husks makes it easier to be pressed into pellets.
In addition to the rice husk, many other agricultural biomass wastes can also be processed into pellets for different purposes. We offer both pellet mills for rice husk and complete biomass pellet production plant.
