Lignocellulosic Biofuels and Grass Plants Used in Production of Pellets

Rasma Platace, Aleksandrs Adamovics, Inguna Gulbe


Use of plant biomass in energy production is one of
the preconditions to compensate growing shortage of fossil
resources; therefore the research covered production of pellet
samples and testing of quality parameters thereof. The study
aimed at researching hemicellulose indicators in osier and poplar
pellets, lignin content in perennial crops (depending on fertiliser
types, norms), parameters characterising pellet content
variations (their evaluation and optimisation depending upon the
proportions of pellet components) as well as characterisation of
lignocellulose parameters.
