Abstract [en]

The new pelleting equipment set up, in combination with an integrated automatic control system and the existing pilot-scale dryer, in the laboratory at the Department of Environmental and Energy Systems at Karlstad University in Sweden, make it possible to run a variety of tests. With the integrated control system the possibility to make adjustments throughout the chain with the aim to decrease the energy demand and improve the pellet quality with focus on the strength of the pellet, moisture content etc are possible. Thus, we have an unique possibility to control the whole production chain, from wet sawdust to pellets. Publications that combine the drying of the raw material with the quality properties of wood fuel pellets are rare. Therefore, research that aims at investigating dryer performance and its effects on chosen pellet quality parameters is to be performed. From now on our department have the tools and possibility to contribute to that field of research
