Bio Trend Energy Private Limited (BTE)

Bio Trend Energy is one of the pioneering and leading company in India that have been working on advanced biomass/waste clean energy solutions/innovations that aims to reduce GHG emissions and improve environment. Our long-term goal is to achieve a cleaner environment by replacing fossil fuel in industrial and other sectors. Bio trend energy has set up state of art of the pellet production facility is located at Gandhidham Gujrat. Our cumulative biomass pellets production, aggregation capacity is expected to reach about 5000 MT per month across India, that would aim to contribute carbon free transition faster.

SOLUTION

1. Densification
Densification is the process of increasing the bulk and energy densities of a biomass feedstock by reducing its bulk volume. Handling an enormous quantity of biomass is energy and labor-intensive, which is one of the major financial factors impeding the use of biomass for sustainable energy and heat generation. Densification can increase the bulk density of biomass from an initial bulk density of 40-200 kg/m3 to a final compact density of 600-1200 kg/m3 .
2. Torrefaction
Torrefaction is a thermochemical treatment of biomass at 230 to 300 °C. Lignocellulosic biomass (agricultural wastes) typically contains high volatile matter and low fixed carbon on dry mass basis. During the torrefaction process, solid biomass is heated in the absence of or drastically reduced oxygen to a temperature of 230-300°C, leading to a loss of moisture and partial loss of the volatile matter in the biomass. With the partial removal of the volatile matter (about 20%), the characteristics of the original biomass are drastically changed.

Clean Energy Project

This project is the first of four anticipated renewable biomass projects, and is expected to serve as a model for developing new projects to capture market share in this highly profitable and growing industry,

Cook Stove
(HH & Community)

The benefits of improved biomass cookstoves (ICS) depends on their adoption and sustained use. Few studies have documented if and how they are used more than five years after being introduced.

5. Waste Solution (Dross)

Waste Solution (Dross)

Waste-to-energy plants burn municipal solid waste (MSW), often called garbage or trash, to produce steam in a boiler that is used to generate electricity.

TECHNOLOGY

1. What is Torrefaction

2. Why is Torrefaction

3. Why Torrefaction for waste

Torrefied biomass is the preferred route due to its inherent advantages as highlighted below.

  • Torrefaction makes biomass more brittle, enhancing its grindability, thereby leading to a significant (85-90%) reduction in milling energy requirement for pulverization in coal-fired thermal plants.
  • The particle shape/size is closer to coal particles and favours conveyance in conventional coal pneumatic feeding systems.
  • The hydrophobic nature of torrefied biomass increases the fuel shelf life by simultaneously minimising the bacterial degradation and water uptake.
  • A significant increase in the heating value of the torrefied fuel can be comparable with that of conventional fossil-based coal.
  • Increase in energy density with a minor reduction in the mass density.
  • The process is most cost-effective energy delivery system.
  • Diversified range of agricultural waste materials can be converted into torrefied form.

5. Gasification

Gasification is the process of converting a solid fuel to a combustible gas; normally the process is carried out by supplying a restricted amount of oxygen, either pure or from air. Bio Trend Energy Private Limited has identified the importance of cleaner technologies in the MSME sector for improving energy efficiency, reducing transaction cost, ensuring environmental sustainability and for making them cost competitive approach. Biomass-based clean energy systems based on gasification technology is one such option that has the potential to transform energy use in MSMEs in India
The innovative approach to the dissemination of biomass gasifiers for thermal applications in MSME clusters involves local delivery mechanism, financing, biomass supply arrangement, operational and service support in the target sector.
In a biomass gasifier, solid biomass fuels (wood, agriculture residues, briquettes, etc.) are converted into gaseous fuel (producer gas) by a series of thermo-chemical processes. The producer gas has calorific value of about 1,000 – 1200 kcal/ Nm3 and consists mainly of carbon monoxide, hydrogen, and nitrogen. One kilogram of biomass produces about 2.5 Nm3 of producer gas. The producer gas can be used as fuel in burner for producing heat energy or in IC engine for mechanical power and electricity generation. The schematic diagram shows the general scheme of a biomass explaining the working arrangement. A biomass gasifier has four different temperature zones consisting of drying, pyrolysis, combustion, and reduction zone that converts the solid fuel into combustible gas.
