Through a drying process, moisture can be largely removed from biomass. The result is a reduction in the weight of the biomass.
This leads to a reduction of the processing costs, as well as of the costs for storage and transport. The dried end product is frequently used as a plant nutrient or it can be used as a fuel. This, however, depends on the properties of the biomass that needs to be dried.
Dorset has a lot of experience with drying other biomass materials than the variants found in the menu. Some examples are grass, compost, fats and food residues. The warm air required for the use of a conveyor belt dryer, can be supplied by the use of either warm stable air or air heated in another way.
Without direct supervision
Benefits of the Dorset dryer
Low energy consumption
Highly compact and flexible
Requires little maintenance
Fully automatic operation without supervision is possible
Remixing frequently makes a pre-treatment of biomass unnecessary
Low dust generation through low air speed
Why dry biomass?
- Making good use of residual heat during the entire year
- Lower storage and transport costs
- New sales and utilization possibilities
It is possible to dry almost any organic waste stream. Dorset has experience with drying a wide variety of biomasses
