Waste Energy: Sustainable Biomass Stoves

Increasingly pinched the middle to lower due to expensive fuel oil from day to day makes Dr Muhammad Nurhuda (44) moved to seek solutions energy utilization easier and cheaper for society. After conducting trials for a month, a lecturer of Physics, Faculty of Mathematics, University of Brawijaya, Malang, East Java, it managed to find an environmentally friendly biomass stoves.
Eco-friendly biomass stove is not oil-fired, but burning wood, plastic, or other garbage and dry leaves. These materials are burned in the biomass stove and barely cause significant smoke.
Of 1 kilogram of fuel, this biomass stove can make a fire for approximately 1 hour. The flames can be enlarged with the use of an electric blower.
“In stove biomass, the burning lasts two Kaii. First is the fuel burn and produce smoke that burned back into the fire that is clear and without smoke. It is part of Theory of gasification, the underlying theory stove biomass of this,” said Nurhuda Sunday ( 15/6) in Malang.
Twice a fire will be seen from the flame produced. In the first burning, fire burning on the material being burned. But in the next combustion, flame-Iubang out of the hole that was on the side wall of the stove.
The biomass stove is comprised of the outer tube components (producer of hot air) as well as the tube (air setting and producing smoke), ash container, fuel chamber, blower (can use a blower or not) to enlarge the flame, and so forth.
? The stove is suitable for the community. In addition to the fuel is cheap and easy to obtain, this stove can also help keep the environment because it helps reduce sampah.di around us. Of course to some extent this will serve to mitigate the impact of global warming, “he said.
Lecturer incorporated in Study of New and Renewable Energy Sources of UB adds, if mass produced, a biomass stove without the blower can be sold at a price of Rp 60,000 per piece. If using a blower, these stoves can be marketed at a price of Rp 100,000 per piece.
“I’m still taking care of his patent and perform a number of physical improvements. Later through UB’s marketing could work with the company equal stove. Most importantly, people can use it,” he said. [HE]
