Abstract [en]

The wood fuel pellet industry demands energy efficient solutions for their production since these not only save energy but also money. One way of achieving this is to use additives. Choosing the right additive can save money but also increase the quality of the pellets, a win win situation. In this work, it is investigated how different kind of additives affect the energy use of the pelletizing equipment and also how it affects the durability of pellets. The best results were achieved using oxidized cornstarch as an additive during pellet production, it not only decreases the energy used the most but also produce the pellets with highest durability.
