Cellulosic ethanol producution has the potential to become a viable renewable source of biofuel in the very near future. Made from plant waste such as corn stover, sugarcane, wheat straw, barley straw and various bagasse, cellulosic ethanol can be derived from a diverse variety of cellulosic biomass feedstocks. Easily sustainable energy crops grown specifically for biofuel production include switchgrass, miscanthus, and cord grass.
Biomass feedstock shredding equipment is an essential part of an integrated system for converting the cellulosic biomass into fuel. To achieve the highest efficiency, an effective pretreatment is needed to prepare the plant cellulose material. Cellulose ethanol feedstock processing requires the size reduction of the biomass to make it more accessible. Preparing the biomass with the use of cellulose material processing equipment increases the surface area of the plant fibers for maximum exposure needed during cellulosic ethanol processing.
As the first pretreatment step of the fiber prep and breakdown process, Vecoplan shredders provide the advanced technology needed to remain competitive with higher throughput, lower maintenance, and lower costs that are the key to staying ahead in the biofuel production industry. Switchgrass shredding equipment, sugarcane, and corn stover shredding machines help to reduce expenses and improve the efficiency of separating and exposure of the cellulosic materials.
When processing large quantities of raw biomass material is required, you need bioethanol production equipment that can make pre-treatment of cellulosic biomas feedstock an optimal experience. Choose Vecoplan for biofuel shredders that can assist with substantially reducing our consumption of gasoline.
