Biomass energy drying

Forest and agricultural coproducts and sub-products offer a great potential to create quality biofuel. By using those resources, we can offer new opportunities by creating sustainable activities and jobs in regions.

Our solutions allows different kind of biomass utilization

Biomass and organic waste

Organic waste, thick agricole hedges' woody portions, trimming shreds, forest residuals, seaweed...

Cogen'Air® drying process, biofuel creation and utilization

Matters are stocked and dryed in dryers equipped with Cogen’Air® hybrid panels.

Drying from a renewable energy
Heat gain between +5°C to +15°C against outside air. Significant air evaporative capacity for an efficient and quick drying.

Resale of electricity
The power produced from the plant is resold. A Cogen’Air® panel produces 10% more of electricity than a conventional photovolatic panel.

A smart control system
Adjusts fans operations according to air temperature and hygrometry.

A facilitated exploitation
The dryer works in autonomy thanks to the control system. Operation costs are very low.

A quality biofuel

Products (chips, densified chips, sawdusts…) from this process have an excellent combustion quality.

A better energy efficiency
Important calorific value
More blazing


Low rates of small particles
Smokes less dusty
Boilers less clogged
Better air quality


Poor ashes rate
Less organic matter
Increased lifetime of boilers

Working principle

Air is sucked up under the building’s roofing, then under the Cogen’Air® panels where it warms up until reaching drying optimal characteristics. This warm air is sucked up by fans and then is injected in skips or under a perforated floor where matters are stored.

Pre-drying example with BASE dryers for carbonisation or granulation projects

These two methods using biofuels in order to produce electricity or heat, have Thermovoltaic plants for the drying biomass phase.
BASE dryers preheat or heats matter thanks to a renewable non-destructive solution for biomass.

Your project funding

Your project funding can be handled by a loan in which we’re guiding you during the procedures alongsides banks or banking institutions dealing with french or european funds dedicated to energy transition funding.

Your project can also be presented to obtain investment subsidy.

Michel Bazin - BSE

We’re using BASE biomass solar dryer to dry our stumps to transform them into firelighters, mulch and grill wood. Stumps are being grund, sieved then dryed before being sold. Thanks to this dryer, we can dry pine stamps that are resin-rich and hardly recoverable before, in order to extract a 100% natural product.
