Biomass energy is extremely suitable for the agricultural industry and agricultural residues is not waste, but the perfect fuel for energy production.
The highly efficient HoSt biomass-fired boiler installations are capable of firing agricultural residues for the production of renewable heat, power and steam with the lowest emissions. Agricultural residues such as sunflower seed husk, rice husk and rice straw, greenhouse vegetables waste and cocoa shells and many more. Applications are for example district heating, power generation, industrial steam for industrial processes, such as breweries, paper/carton factories, cheese factories and heat and CO2 for the greenhouse horticulture.
Optimized boiler installation for agriculture
Suitable for any agricultural industry company and firing many types of agricultural residues. A large radiation section is key when firing agricultural residues. These agricultural residues fuels contain a lot of minerals with a low ash melting point. HoSt developed a boiler installation which is able to solidify the evaporated minerals by radiation to avoid excessive fouling of the boiler. In the HoSt furnace, the walls of the furnace are cooled due to the same reason and the firing temperature on the grate as well. The latter is achieved by flue gas recirculation below the grate. For heating a greenhouse, the HoSt hot water boiler is the best choice.
