Biomass: the material in agricultural practices

Biomass: the material in agricultural practices

Have you ever seen a traditional farmer's kitchen, the harvest? Around this time, all of the available nooks and crannies on and above the stove and the rest are filled with corn, onions and other vegetables. If only briefly, might not seem to be of any use, even if it is practical and cost-effective way to save farmers' crops, either for sale at a later date, or the seeds to become the next planting season.

From the above, for example, we can see that the heat and the smoke that is produced from biomass as fuel in the family-the furnaces have been used in the process of crops. When asked more directly: "Why do they continue to rely on biomass fuels?" There is a wide range of responses, such as the "necessary technology is a simple", "plenty of available fuel," if the burnt wood or other biomass fuels, that the taste is better, and the product lasts longer, "as well as a number of other reasons.

This task has Biomass Fuels

Based in many cases, the biomass fuel, can operate in different ways. First of all, please contact the heat energy that is produced by wood and charcoal combustion, or other biomass materials. Some examples of this feature to include cassava chips (opak) Tuntungan, North Sumatera, tea-leaf reading Turgon Kaliurang, Yogyakarta, or in the tobacco drying in Dieng, Wonosobo, Central Javanese, where tobacco is smoked those who roll their own.

Another feature is enabled, smoke, which is produced in the above-mentioned biomass fuels. For example, tobacco roasting, Jember, East Java, or Klaten, Central Javanese. In general, to increase the smoke from biomass fuels, people will sprinkle the water of fuel when it is burning.

Things are in other countries

The use of biomass fuels is not confined to Indonesia. In Thailand, the Land of the White Elephant, biomass fuels are used in very different industries: coconut oil, palm oil, rice-chip, rice milling, soy, cassava snack foods, refined sugar, tea processing, tobacco processing, and vinegar processing.

In Bangladesh, meanwhile, a country that has often suffered from the floods, biomass fuels are used in bread baking, processing of tobacco, tea leaf processing, rice processing and do many other traditional foods. Perhaps the use of biomass fuels is a practice that will run throughout the ages.
