Pelletization of Miscanthus - the Optimisation of Process Parameters for the Production of a Standardised Fuel

A. Pilz, C. Kirsten, N. Weller & A. Pollex
Alternative solid biofuels like Miscanthus are experiencing a growing interest for energy related use. In particular Miscanthus pellets have a high potential to accomplish the requirements of small scale combustion units – a homogenous fuel with constant properties. The production of Miscanthus pellets is comparable to the production of wood pellets. Due to the similar technical requirements pellet plants used for the production of wood pellets can be modified for the production of high quality...
