Abstract: As an indirect consequence of climate change, the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions, the energy utilization of agricultural by-products will be increasingly emphasized in the future. Pellet production is one possible way to utilize the residues for energy purposes. Mixtures of different plant residues (wheat straw, rapeseed stem) and agri-pellets have different energetic and mechanical properties. Besides high ash content and low ash softening temperature, mechanical properties can also significantly affect the quality of pellets as well as the efficiency of firing. There were also significant differences in diameter, length, bulk density and mechanical durability of pellets.
Keywords: agripellet, mechanical testing, blend pellets, wheat straw, rape seed stem
