The calorific value of fuel is an essential property that determines the amount of heat energy generated from a given quantity of fuel. This value measures the fuel’s ability to release energy through combustion. It is express in units of energy per unit of mass, such as joules per gram or kilocalories per kilogram. The higher the calorific value of the fuel, the more energy can be generated from it. Therefore, the more efficient it is. In this blog, let us understand in detail the calorific value of the fuel.

Why does the calorific value of fuel matter?

  1. Energy efficiency: The calorific value of fuel measures how much energy can be generated from a given quantity of fuel. Fuels with higher calorific values can produce more energy output for the same fuel consumed, making them more energy-efficient.
  2. Cost savings: Using fuels with higher calorific values can lead to cost savings in fuel consumption, as less fuel is require to produce the same energy output.
  3. Environmental impact: Burning fuel with a higher calorific value can produce fewer emissions of pollutants, such as carbon dioxide and other gases.
  4. Fuel selection: Understanding different fuels can help select the most appropriate fuel for a particular application. For example, fuels with high calorific values may be prefer for applications where high energy output is require.

“Astillas” – A Fuel with High heat Value

Steamax has created a new biomass fuel mixture called “Astillas”, which produces lower emissions than other fuels. It has superior combustion properties and burns cleanly, making it a better option than any other biomass fuel.

  1. Astillas, a biomass fuel blend, boasts a high calorific value of (4500 Kcal/kg), low moisture content( <10%), and an ash (<2%).
  2. The fuel combines other high-quality local biomass fuels such as dried & debarked wood chips, dried sawdust, and groundnut shells.
  3. It has the lowest price per million calories compared to other biomass fuels, making it an economical option.
  4. Overall, the clean burning of Astillas is a desirable feature. It minimizes environmental impact, extends the lifespan of equipment, and promotes safety.
