Effects of Binder Materials on the Lignite-Biomass Fuel Briquettes

A. Özyuguran, H. Haykiri-Acma & E. Dahiloglu
In this study, a lignite sample from Afsin-Elbistan area of Turkey was briquetted using hazelnut shell, olive residue and sunflower shell as additives. The lignite sample was blended with the biomass samples and the blends were used in the production of fuel briquettes. Lignite-biomass blends were prepared to contain 2, 5, 10 and 20 wt% biomass as additive. These blends were briquetted for 10 s under 830 MPa pressure without using any binder. The blends...
