Pellet Production

  • Besides the financial and socio-economic benefits that countries experience when they replace coal with home grown Arundo bio-mass for the production of electricity, countries can also boost export income by exporting Arundo Donax in pelletised form.
  • The market for “green coal” is growing at a very fast rate in developed markets seeking to diversify away from burning coal. Equilibre can build pellet plants that compress and condition Arundo Donax into a form that is efficient to transport and store. “Green coal” has a high calorific value and leaves minimal ash since it burns almost completely (unlike coal).
  • Importantly, it is a net zero generator of greenhouse gases since the carbon-based gases that are produced during combustion are offset by the sequestering of carbon into the Arundo Donax plants during the growth phase.
