Going "green" with a bio-burning grain dryer

by

Grain dryers are a key piece of equipment on many farms to help manage the harvest season. Especially in very wet years, but even in an average year, grain dryers can be a huge asset to protect grain quality in the bin.

But grain dryers are also large users of energy. Most dryers run off natural gas or propane, both fuels currently subject to the federal government’s carbon tax.

One company is hoping to change that fossil-fuel-only option with its Triple Green BioDryAir.

Cody Kimmel, with Triple Green, says the unit is designed to burn several types of biomass, instead of natural gas and propane, and burn biomass.

Available in several sizes, beginning with 3 million BTUs and up to 30 million BTUs, Kimmel says these dryers can run off of straw, wood pellets, or other biomass that will burn at 1800 degrees.

Check out the full conversation with Kimmel and RealAgriculture’s Kara Oosterhuis, below:
