Carbon Positive, Carbon Carbon Neutral or Negative?

Greenhouse gases from burning fossilfuels have caused the Earth's temperature to rise. Increasing the temperature of the earth or global warming causing numerous disasters due to climate change in a number of places on earth. When greenhouse gases not controlled then the result of damage to the environment of the earth will be more severe. Therefore, efforts were made to reduce greenhouse gases as the cause of environmental problems. In general, there are four common scenarios to prevent the global warming effect of CO2 in the atmosphere gradually, namely:
1.     increasing the efficiency so the fossil fuel consumption decreases,
2.     mix of renewable fuels with fossil fuels so that fossil fuel consumption has also decreased,
3.     substitution of fossil fuels with renewable fuels
4.     and the absorption of CO2 in the atmosphere so that the concentration of greenhouse gases can be reduced.
Here are some basic terms related to the above problems. Based on the origin and the effect that CO2 in the atmosphere then reviewed as follows:



A.    Carbon Positive
Fossil fuel or fuel mines are grouped into Carbon Positive fuel. This is because the burning of this fuel would make gas content in the atmosphere, especially CO2 will increase. Increased CO2 in the atmosphere is the source of global warming issues above.
Carbon Neutral cycle with biomass thermal route

Carbon Neutral Cycle with biomass densificaion (wood pellet) route
B.    Carbon Neutral
When CO2 gas in the atmosphere does not increase due to the generation of energy from an energy source it is said that energy sources Carbon Neutral.  Because it does not add to or reduce the balance of CO2 diatmosfer it is said to be environmentally friendly energy. Renewable energy sources such as biomass, wind, water and sun are Carbon Neutral. Material substitution of fossil fuels with renewable fuels included in the Carbon Neutral scenario.



C.    Carbon Negative
Currently the CO2 content in the atmosphere has exceeded the threshold limit. The latest report says has reached 390 ppm, this would need to be reduced concentration. Various technologies are developed in order to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere. Naturally the tree is able to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere, meaning that the more we plant a tree, the more CO2 diatmosfer reduced. Biochar or agricultural charcoal, the charcoal is used to fertilize the soil by placing it on the ground is a material that can absorb CO2 from the atmosphere as well as soil fertility, because its nutrient content and media for microbial breeding. Technology in the group Carbon Capture and Storage (CSS) is a Carbon Negative technology, although currently still very expensive investment.


Come be part of the solution to perform activities of Carbon Neutral and Carbon Negative, and minimize part of the problem with Carbon Positive activity.

10 Advantages By Making Energy Plantations for Wood Pellet Production

Assuredness of supply of raw materials is one of the key factors of business success in the wood pellets. There are two ways to obtain raw materials commonly done today: a. Buying from the owner of source of raw materials. b. Producing its own the availability of raw materials. While the 3rd way and there is still few for business owners make wood pellets is by mix way, which is partly provide by their own of raw materials and some rest buy from the other source of raw materials.
While examining at the types of biomass raw materials there are two kinds, namely : a. Woody biomass b. Non-wood biomass such as agricultural wastes (empty fruit bunches of palm oil trees, corn cobs, rice husks and so on). Currently woody biomass remains a priority to be products of wood pellets as a number of advantages over non-wood biomass which is generally an agricultural wastes, are included in the category of biomass pellets or agri-waste pellets. The comparison between wood pellet and biomass pellet …

Scrambling Biomass Waste Empty Fruit Bunch of Palm Oil: For Paper or Pellets?

In an effort to optimize the full potential of a number of oil companies are planning to process their wastes that resulting from the CPO production process. One of them is empty fruit bunches (EFB).  Two alternatives are being hotly debated is made pellets for energy and for the paper. Viewed from the business side, if it is profitable so is certainly not a problem for the production of both products. Availability of raw materials into one of the important factors in terms of production and business in general.
Further analysis can be done by looking in more detail in the production process technology, the amount of investment, ROI, environmental aspects, sustainability of core business (palm oil) and benefits of the products produced are a number of factors that will make it easier to eventually choose one. Further know more detail about the characteristics of each business such products will also further increase the stability of both products. In the end, the higher score determi…

Wood Briquette Left Behind 25 Years of Wood Pellet

Common areas with wood burning application it will be appropriate to use wood briquette and less suitable when using wood pellets. Various areas in various parts of the world use wood for heating (wood burning stove or boiler) or for cooking. If the ratio of wood as fuel is much so the business of  wood briquette production will be more attractive than wood pellets. Globally wood briquette are less popular than wood pellets, so the wood briquette production is also far below the wood pellets. Wood briquette also has its own characteristics compared to wood pellets.




In general, wood briquette production is also much easier than wood pellets. The particle size, raw materials, moisture content and operations slightly more stringent than the requirements for the production of wood pellets. All wood pellets have a cylindrical shape which is only distinguished diameter of the cylinder, and a commonly used the diameter of 6 mm and 8 mm, while the wood briquette in addition to its shape can …
