Latest Installation - Biomass Hot Air Blowers For Poultry Sheds

Biomass hot air blowers offer a superb alternative to conventional heating systems used for poultry sheds. Biomass systems such as the D'Alessandro GS130 Hot Air Blower draws fresh, clean air from outside the shed instead of circulating old air which is often damp and non-hygienic for the livestock environment. Our most recent installation, undertaken by Big Dutchman (W.Cape), was for 6 poultry sheds in the Western Cape (South Africa) each 84x12x2.6m (2620m³). For this setup GS130 hot air blowers were installed to heat fresh air from outside the sheds and distribute via overhead poly convection tubes running the length of sheds. Biomass fuels include dry wood based shed litter, sawdust, wood

The Potential For Biomass in Farming

Biomass energy has the potential to increase energy independence of farms, reduce pollution outputs and even revitalise rural economies. Rural communities can use locally produced crop residues to heat and power homes and industries. Farmers can sell their crop residues, not only offering a way to earn extra income but also a sollution to disposing of their byproducts. Common examples of biomass residues found on farms include: Dry residues - straw, husks, nut shells, woodchip/sawdust, animal bedding (poultry litter etc.) Wet residues - manure & slurries, grass silage Before combustion can take place, the moisture content must be reduced in many residues. This can be done through a 'drying'

There's More to a Grape Than a Glass of Wine...Biomass in the Wine Industry

The wine industry in large wine producing countries such as Australia, South Africa, Italy, France and Spain have at their disposal a substantial quantity of biomass in the form of grape skins, pips, stalks, fermentation residues and wastewater sludge. All of these waste materials can readily be converted into energy. It is widely reported that wine producers are not utilizing these waste materials and are therefore losing out on a valuable energy source. Not only is it suggested that wine producers could reduce their energy costs by 50% by converting their waste biomass into energy but they would also be reducing the energy required to dispose of the waste. In some cases wine producers cou
