This paper presents the results of the caloric value, content of water, ash and carbon, nitrogen and hydrogen in the four types of briquettes. Material consisted of wheat straw briquettes with additives such as alder sawdust, meadow hay and oats. The results were used for comparison purposes of the basic physicochemical parameters of briquettes. It was determined that the briquettes obtained from a combination of straw and alders sawdust have the highest caloric value. In addition, the increased level of ash remaining after burning in the samples, which had higher carbon content, was reported which may indicate losses related to incomplete burning.
