Title : The analysis of the selected quality properties of pellets made of plant raw materials
Key words : biomass energy, mechanical strength of pellets
Summary :

The paper presents the analysis of the selected quality properties of pellets produced of winter wheat straw, rye straw, Grenado and Fredro winter triticale, wheat mixture, buckwheat and and meadow hay. The following properties of the produced pellets were evaluated: moisture, calorific value and mechanical strength. Generally accepted methods, set forth in the standard PN-EN 14961 "Solid biofuels- fuel specifications and classes" were used. The research proved that the considered quality properties of the produced pellets on account of their energy use, transport and storing were on a high level and the obtained results were comparable to the data presented by other researchers. It was also reported that all discussed properties for each initial material, of which pellet was made, met the quality requirements of the used standard and the product could have been admitted for turnover on the biofuels market.
