Economical Assessment of Blended Biomass Pellets Production

M. Kappes, A. Schneider, D. Hein & W. Krumm
The focus of interest is on current perspectives, characteristics and competitiveness of the production, of blended biomass pellets. Particularly with regard to blends of agricultural energy crops and biogenous residues, the production of blended pellets shows a high potential as for example wood pellets for domestic combustion systems.
