E.B. Clean Energy: Biocoal for Power Generation

A CLEAN SOURCE OF RENEWABLE ENERGY

​WHAT IS BIOCOAL?

It is a clean, renewable fuel in the form of briquettes, which is produced from low quality biomass, biomass wastes and municipal solid waste normally used for land-fill, that replaces coal as a source of power generation.  

 WHY BIOCOAL? 

  • It is pollution-free with no sulfur or hazardous materials, no greenhouse gas emissions and no black smoke 
  • It is easy to burn with a lower ignition temperature than coal
  • It performs better and more reliably than coal 
  • It has a high specific density and can be transported and stored easily                           
  • It is more economical and cheaper than coal and wood

HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Biocoal is produced by the process of torrefaction (roasting in French), which reduces biomass volume, improves energy content, removes smoke-producing compounds and yields a solid uniform product with a lower moisture content and a higher energy content  
  • The Israeli E.B. Clean Energy company has developed a prototype of a torrefaction plant and proved the feasibility of its torrefaction technology. Prior to going to commercialization, it is necessary to perform co-firing tests in coal-fired boilers, in conjunction with the Israel Electric Corporation.  These tests will require the production of 2500 tons of biocoal.  

HOW DOES IT HELP?

  • It provides an environmentally-friendly source of energy
  • It reduces the cost of energy  

HOW YOU CAN HELP 

It costs US $ 1,700,000* to perform the tests needed in order to commercialize biocoal.
