Waste Recycling

Ok, today trend for woodworking industry is a green industry, for some people will think this matter as a strange situation because woodworking industry is cutting woods (wood is green ok...) and there is no such thing as "green" as woodworking industry..

Ok, let me tell you the fact, the biggest enemy for the wood's is not the woodworking industry, but it's palm oil industry, they say they are making biofuel from it, but it wasting the green area a lot..., one medium sizes of this industry need an area of 15,000 hectare of green area!!! That is big..., very big....!! You can imagine how many big business players in this industry..., and how much green area have been wasted for this industry..., ckckckc...

The second biggest enemy for green area in Indonesia, to be honest is not the woodworking industry also, but it's about transmigration people from big city that open a land for farming or other, usually their way to open a new land for farming is just by burning the area, they even don't know if the area they burned down is too big or something (you cannot control the fire ok...!)..., and they don't even care about the effect by doing this kind of things...

So the woodworking industry is not the big enemy for green stuff ok..., there will be always order for wood's stuff in the world market..., we cannot stop it..., and everyone will still need it, it just it will be going to a higher level market..., so about green woodworking industry is about how we save the wood's by making it more usefull.., is about like we make the production line more efficient, so if before we need's 100m3 wood's to make 5 container of finish product, we now must used 100m3 of wood's to make 6 container or more finish product, it talking all about how we increase our yield, so we make a better use of the wood's and saving the environment.., there are a lot of way to do this thing.., the first thing are by improving our production line or by waste recycling of our woods..., we will talk about waste recycling..!

Waste recycling can be a lot of variations that not every way is ideal for every factory..., the first one is by using finger joint system, it will be saving your wood's and increase your yield and this system is ideal for small to big factory...., the invest value is small, have a fast ROI (Return of Investment) and have a simple way of production…, this system I think can be applied to ALL woodworking industry…

The second way is by using the sawdust, and if your sawdust is more than 120 ton per day, then you must start investing for a particle or MDF line, the invest value are very big and a little bit slow ROI…

The third way is by using a power generator plant by using the wood dust as the fuel, it also high investment, it depend how big is the power you need’s…, you must use the gasification system for this power plant, it have a higher investment than a conventional steam turbine system or any system, but a higher efficiency, the efficiency will be count with how much saw dust we use each hour to generate 1 kW of electricity…

The fourth way to waste recycling is if your wood waste is about 20 - 50 ton perday, you must start to invest in a briquette production line, the investment is not too high, but not that low also, but it have a simple way of production, need’s less worker and fast ROI also, and the finish product value will always getting higher as the crude oil value getting higher each day….

The fifth way to waste recycling is if your waste less than 5 - 20 ton is to start investing WPC production line, this product price are getting higher each day and the demand for this product are getting higher also, even for some foreign country that doesn’t have any wood dust, they invest in this production line by importing the saw dust form other country, and even our country that have so many wood dust, we still doesn’t have to many factory that start running this production…, the production line is simple, low cost and a fast ROI, why we don’t wanted to start working with this product?? Quite strange all right…, there are still pro and contra about this product, but the simple thing is of other can made it all right by a more difficult situation from the material etc, why we cannot make it better, we have a better resource for it…, such a silly situation…!

The sixth way to recycling your product if your waste less than 10 - 15 ton is to investing in a wood pellet production line, is a low investment and it also a biofuel, so the price will always getting higher and everyone needs it, and now the market demand for this product is still unlimited…, start to think about it ok…

The other way to save your wood’s by recycling is by pressing your saw dust using a machine that is very cheap machine, to make it solid looks like a briquette but it not as solid as briquette, lower calorie value, but you can used it as a material for your Boiler for KD, Oven, etc, it last longer than if you use the saw dust only and it have a higher calorie value than the simple saw dust….


Start to save the woods and start to love your environment…, it’s what we can give to our son and grandson in the future…, Good Luck…!!!
