Biomass and Forest Waste
Millpar transforms renewable forest resources into products for civil construction in a sustainable way.
There are 350 thousand m³ of wood processed in the industries per year and all the raw material is used. 100% of the biomass is transformed into other products for the generation of clean energy, pulp and paper, and rebuilt wood slabs.
Biomass is all organic matter that can be used to produce energy. The use of wood residues (biomass) to generate thermal and electrical energy replaces fossil fuels. This contributes to reducing the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere and, consequently, the greenhouse effect, as it is a source of clean and renewable energy.
Biomass product intended for the generation of thermal energy. As it is more ecological and compact than other fuels, it is considered an excellent alternative for generating heat in boilers and burners in large and small businesses such as hotels, pizzerias, offices and homes.
It has low cost compared to thermal energy sources such as diesel, gas and fossil fuels and is recognized by IBAMA as an ecologically correct fuel.
It does not present any risk of explosion, smell or smoke, resulting in the total burning of the product.
Moisture: less than 10%
Calorific power: above 4,600kcal / kg
Ash: less than 0.7%
Fine: less than 1%
Density: greater than 600kg / m³
Green woodchips are used to generate heat energy (steam) and electric energy for freezers (poultry and swine slaughterhouses), cellulose and paper industries, food industries in general such as soybean oil, sausages, grain drying, animal food industry, margarines, breaded products, pasta, etc.
Dry woodchips come from dry wood processing and are used to generate heat and electric energy, as well as green woodchips.
Wood shavings are used in aviary beds and after that are sent to the tiltages in order to be used as organic compost in several cultures.
They are separated and used as door cores.
Pine bark is used as compost and substrate for ornamental plants cultivation and/or seedlings to be reforested and to generate steam for the kiln dryers.
Wood dust is used for ceramics, for burnt clay in the tile and brick manufacturing process due to its high heat power (3.850 kcal/kg) and easy combustion (explosion).
