Tremendous Potential of Waste Coffee Husks as a Resource

Enormous Coffee Production

Countries such as Brazil, Vietnam, Colombia, Indonesia, and Ethiopia collectively account for approximately 65% of global output. The coffee industry plays a multifaceted role in the economic development of these nations. This industry fosters economic growth and employment opportunities in the food processing industry. Coffee husks, as agricultural by-products, contributes to local economic development through their rational utilization.

Substantial Coffee Consumption

With the widespread adoption of coffee culture, coffee consumption has surged globally. Countries like Finland, Norway, Iceland, Denmark, and Sweden lead in per capita coffee consumption. As economies grow and the coffee retail sector expands, more people are developing a taste for coffee. Consequently, with increased coffee sales, the production of coffee husks also rises. Therefore, effectively utilizing coffee husks presents a significant commercial opportunity.

Tremendous Potential of Coffee Husks as a Resource to Make Charcoal

Why is Pyrolysis Technology Suitable for Processing Coffee Husks?

Coffee husks contain significant amounts of cellulose, hemicellulose, and lignin. Therefore, they are suitable raw materials for producing coffee husk charcoal.

Pyrolysis, as one of the primary methods for charcoal production, is characterized by safety, efficiency, large-scale capacity, and pollution-free operation. Under conditions of high temperature, closed environment, and minimal oxygen, coffee husks undergo physical and chemical reactions. The elements in coffee husks undergo dehydration, fracture, and recombination to mainly form three products: coffee husk charcoal, biogas, tar, and wood vinegar. With this technology, the quality of coffee husk charcoal can be controlled and adjusted in the charcoal making machine.

How to Make Charcoal from Coffee Husk?

Ensure that coffee husks meet the feeding requirements and feed them into the main furnace.
In the BST series, the size of coffee husks ranges from 5-20mm (with an optimal size of 5-8mm), with a moisture content of ≤15%.

Heat the main biochar reactor to 280-600 degrees Celsius to initiate the reaction. During this process, the moisture content of coffee husks gradually decreases as they trafnsform into biomass charcoal, accompanied by the production of some combustible gases. The transformation from coffee husks to charcoal typically takes about 15-25 minutes.

03Residue Discharge
Biomass charcoal is discharged through a water-cooling discharging system. After passing through two water-cooling stages, the temperature of the biomass charcoal can be reduced to below 45 degrees Celsius.

04Combustible Gas Recovery
Combustible gases within the main furnace undergo condensation and cyclone dust removal treatment before being directly used as heating fuel for the furnace.

05Waste Gas Treatment
Waste gases from the main furnace are treated by standard dust removal systems to ensure emissions comply with regulations. Additionally, we offer advanced tail gas dust removal systems and customized dust removal systems to meet European emission standards.
