Finding The Best Treasure From Energy Plantation Implementation Part 3

"He created you from the one self then He made it out of his wife and He sent for you eight pairs of pets of cattle ...." (QS 39: 6)

In another verse (QS 6: 143-144), eight animals in pairs (4 pairs) are two (one pair) sheep, a pair of goats, a pair of camels and a pair of cows.
Of the series of livestock mentioned in the above verses, the sheep is called first, then goat, camel and cow. Rule in the Qur'an, the first thing has a primacy rather than after it. Well, this is where sheep have a virtue compared to the other levestock animals mentioned in the verse, although all the animals are halal meat eaten. Another indication of the primacy of the sheep can also be found in Eid al-Adha event, when the Prophet Ibrahim was ordered by Allah SWT to slaughter his son Ismail, then Allah SWT saved Ismail and replaced it with the big lamb (sheep). The event then we commemorate every year and become the shari'a of Qurban on Idhul Adha day every 10 Dzulhijah.  On the practical si…

Learn From The Portraits Of The Cities On Earth At Night

Let's take a moment to look at satellite imagery of our country at night. There is only a glittering Javanese island, while the other islands are dark and only in the provincial capital alone show a bright spot. Why did it happen? Certainly due to the more developed or physical infrastructure and the much more populated population than other islands in Indonesia. It is estimated that more than half or about 60% of Indonesia's population is on the island of Java. The bright spots or glitter of these cities are indicators of physical progress in the area. Development can be highly developed in Java because the three pillars of the economy namely, capital, market and production can run quickly and efficiently. Inequality of development equalization must be immediately overcome, but how? The solution is to do the distribution of development through the three pillars of the economy above. Capital, markets and production must enter in islands outside Java with the same level of spee…

Ash Problem Up to Modification of Power Plant in the Framework of Coal Substitution to Wood Pellet on Pulverized System

The ash of various biomass in combustion causes a number of problems in the pulverized system. That's because the pulverized system is designed to burn coal. Does not the coal also produce ash after burning even more quantity? Yeah right, but the chemical content of coal ash is different from that of biomass. The difference is that coal ash contains a lot of heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium, mercury, selenium, lead, and nickel which have high melting point so it does not cause problems to the pulverized, whereas biomass ash mainly contains alkali metals such as potassium and alkaline earths are calcium, which has a low melting point so it creates a problem on the pulverized. The content of coal ash is also much larger compare with biomass ash content. What is the problem with the biomass ash chemistry? There are several problems caused by the ash chemistry on the pulverized system, namely slagging and fouling. How to avoid it? There are several ways to avoid it, namely first,…

History Repeated Back In The Field of Biomass Part 2

Post-industrial revolution human racing to exploit coal mines, oil and gas for the fuel of various production machines and factories. With the "scientific prejudice"  man assumes and argues that only with the fuel so the production machines in various industries can be operated and humans can feel the prosperity with various facilities of his life. Fuel consumption is encouraged, so the reserves depleted. In addition, currently within a range that is not too long, it turns out the impact of the "scientific prejudice" of human is already felt, the various environmental problems caused, which can even threaten human life itself. It was for this reason that humans came to the conclusion that fossil fuel consumption should be limited and even discontinued, because it is not environmentally friendly and unsustainable. The phenomenon is similar to the use of chemical fertilizers for agriculture. Chemical fertilizers began to bloom in use around the world after World War …

Finding The Best Treasure From Energy Plantation Implementation Part 2

Cattle grazing proved to be important activity and work that will continue to exist until doomsday. Most human beings regard it as a lowly and ancient work so much abandoned. Though of course in the current era technology devices can be used to facilitate grazing, one of which is with IoT (Internet of Things) which is also widely applied in some areas of life. With cattle grazing turns out one of the important things for human that the cycle of food can run and continue (sustain). Soil fertility will be preserved, then grasses can continue to grow as well as various other trees. It is Allan Savory, a biologist from Zimbabwe who formulated the phenomenal concept of saving life on earth through Holistic Planned Grazing, a simple concept of planned grazing. The concept has even been applied in various parts of the world, ranging from Africa, Australia, Latin America and even North America with a total area of ​​more than 16 million hectares (about 40 million acres). How the grazing syste…

When Blessings Become More Important!

Allah (Giver) light (to) the heavens and the earth. The parable of His light is like an unbroken hole, in which there is a great lamp. The lamp is in the glass (and) the glass is as if the star (which is luminous) is like a pearl, which is lit with oil from a blessed tree, (ie) an olive tree that grows not in the east (something) nor west (its), whose oil (just) almost illuminates, though not touched by fire. Light above light (layered), God guides to His light whom He wills, and Allah makes parables for man, and Allah is All-Knowing all things. (Surah 24:35)

What if there is a Qur'anic verse that informs the blessed tree so that by planting it also becomes its own blessing? What if the blessed tree has also been proven or tested empirically, giving man many benefits on one side of the economy? The tree is an olive tree, ie in the Qur'an An-Nur: 35. And the olive tree is one of a number of plants whose names are mentioned in the Qur'an. In addition, the most important thin…

InsyaAllah No Longer Again, Our Power Generator Only Size of a Refrigerator

Around the mid 1980s, electricity entered into my residence in Bantul, Yogyakarta. While in my grandmother's place in Kulon Progo, Yogyakarta even much longer, ie the late 1980s or early 1990s. For almost 30 years electricity has become an integral part of our lives. Various human activities become easier with the electricity. Even some activities and professions are very dependent on the use of electricity, for example in modern manufacturing industries. Some of us may have asked in general, how the electricity is generated, where the power plant is, why not all regions in Indonesia get electricity, with what electricity can be produced, why tariffs or electricity costs continue to rise every time and so on. Even fewer may ask as to whether it is possible to generate and meet their own electricity needs, is there any connection to the electricity production we have been using with increasing carbon (CO2) in the atmosphere, and can be part of the solution to decrease the CO2 in t…

Improving Dryer Efficiency At Wood Pellet And Wood Briquette Factories

Rotary dryer or drum dryer is a common type of dryer used in the biomass industry namely wood pellet and woodbriquette factories. The advantages of rotary dryer due to the construction is simple, easy in operation and the drying capacity is quite large. There are two important points to consider in the use of a rotary dryer dryer: 1. Heat flow pattern, single pass or triple pass drum; 2. Type of equipment for emission control, such as multiple cyclone systems or other types. Both of these will affect the dryer efficiency as well as the environmental aspects. In practice in Indonesia almost all rotary dryers use single pass with a co-current with material to be dried. Multi-cyclone with cyclone also serves as a temporary storage is also widely encountered.
Side of other efficiencies that can be improved that is on the heating media. This is because the fuel consumption for drying is costly. Currently the rotary or drum dryer drying process that operates by direct-contact between the fl…

Wood Pellet Market Projection Until 2025 And Indonesia Opportunities

Making of market projection will be needed for all parties involved in the wood pellet business, especially the producers of wood pellets itself. Increasing or reducing production even stopping production could be done if the situation and conditions support it. A projection capable of presenting accurate data will facilitate the decision making. The level of accuracy of precise data and sharp analysis and presented in an informative and attractive make a projection so valuable and made a major reference for all parties involved in this business. Below we try to present the projection of wood pellet market until 2025 which is collected from various sources and personal experience. May be a useful projection for the reader.
Wood pellet market is generally grouped into two, namely industry and heating. The industrial sector is electricity generation, while the heating sector is heating and boiler. The quality of industrial wood pellets is lower than the premium wood pellet. The need for …

Rice Husk Briquette Easy, Quick And Abundant Raw Materials

In fact, Indonesia is currently a net importer of petroleum because the production capacity is not sufficient to the existing needs. In the 1980s our oil production was around 1,700 barrels per day (BPD), while the need for consumption was only about 400 BPD. While the current level of production range of 800s BPH while consumption needs can reach 1400an BPD. This should encourage the use of various renewable energies. Moreover, the problem of energy sovereignty is also an important thing for the existence of a country. If the energy source is easy and cheap is available and easy also in its utilization would be a choice. The rice husk briquette (although the type of solid fuel but also one of the solutions, because our staple food from rice that produces waste rice husk. Rice husks that initially have a density of about 125 kg / m3 can be 1200 kg / m3 or nearly twice as dense than hardwood stems and also much denser than wood pellets ranging from 650 kg / m3 when briquetted. By bein…
