2TPH Elephant Grass Pelletizer Plant in The Philippines

Project Name: Elephant Grass Pelletizer Plant
Raw Materials: Elephant Grass / Giant King Grass / Napier Grass / Uganda Grass / Miscanthus
Plant Output: Produce 2 ton grass pellets per hour.
Project Location: Philippines


This pelletizer plant was designed and constructed for one of our client in the Philippines, who own a plantation of elephant grass. With this plant, he can make biomass fuel pellets from the energy crop. Besides, he will get shredded grass which will be used as chicken bedding. It will produce 500~700kg grass pellets per hour.

The term Elephant grass may refer to the following grass species:

  • The African Pennisetum purpureum, also known as Napier grass, Uganda grass or giant king grass.
  • The Eurasian Saccharum ravennae, also known as ravennagrass or ekra
  • The South Asian Miscanthus fuscus, also used as a biomass crop

The production of Giant King Grass pellets is a five-step process, which involves drying where the moisture content is reduced to 10%, crushing to smaller bits, pelleting using ring die type pellet machine, cooling down to normal temperature and packing into containers.

Giant King Grass is Good Material for Pelletizing Production

Giant King Grass due to its similar constitution to Corn Stover and Miscanthus, and due to the fact that it provides heat value of about 7,900 B.T.U per dry pond which is higher than the aforementioned sources and produces energy up to 18.4 MJ per kilogram, has become a great source for biomass energy pellet production. lts higher yield, low cost of production, ease of processing and the fact that it requires very less fertilizers and no pesticides makes it a better candidate. Abundance of this grass also reduces the cost significantly. Giant King Grass does not just reduce the cost of energy, it also reduces the carbon footprint for production due to its near zero utilization of fertilizers and pesticides.

Market of Elephant Grass Pellets

Governments, industries as well as scientific community have been looking for alternate sources of energy for the past decade, especially energy sources that are renewable. Biomass energy has gained importance as a great alternative, renewable source of energy during this time.

napier grass processing industry, making biomass fuel pellets

The very fast growing, high yield, low cost, low maintenance Giant King Grass or Elephant grass has become the most ideal biomass energy source to grow in the tropical and sub-tropic regions. With abundant sunshine and water, Giant King Grass can be harvested in as less as 195 days and every 120 days subsequently. The significance of the Giant King-Grass Pellet Production Line can be determined after considering the advantages of this energy source and the market in detail.

Elephant Grass Pelletizer Plant Cost

Our first elephant grass pelletizing project was constructed in 2011 while the location is in the Guangdong Province of China. The major raw material is the Giant King-Grass. The total investment stands at R.M.B 13 million. And aside from drying and grinding, the project line also covers chopping, pelletizing and pressing, chopping, grinding, drying, and pelletizing. The capacity of production is about 10,000 tns per year while the gross production stands at R.M.B 250 per ton. The sales price is R.M.B 85. The target market is the Pearl River-Delta region and finally, the quality of the pellet is giant king-grass pellets that contain 8.8% moisture and with a 4.72 k Whlkg calorific value.
