The paper presents the results of research work aimed at determining process parameters for production of quality briquettes from Miscanthus raw material. Raw material was obtained from southern Ukraine from the autumn harvest. The obtained results clearly indicate that adequate grinding, humidity reduction of less than 15% and application of agglo...

... These include: wood from eucalyptus and bamboo, energy crops, agricultural waste, agricultural and food industry waste, municipal waste, sewage sludge, etc. [6,8]. The use of lignocellulosic biomass of energy crops, e.g., miscanthus, willow, poplar, acacia or paulownia as a source is particularly interesting [7,11,13]. According to current trends in research on solid biofuels presented by Knapczyk et al. [12] main groups of topics are: (1) searching for new raw materials for the production of solid biofuels-e.g., waste biomass from palm oil [14], sunflower husks [15], peanut shells [16], new species etc. [17,18], (2) optimization of the supply chain, warehouse logistics and biofuels legislation, e.g., development of and identification system to ensure the quality of biomass [19], legal analysis of the international standard classification of solid biofuels etc. [20] (3) optimization of plant cultivation, study of physicochemical properties of raw materials-e.g., determining the calorific value, chemical composition of elements and main energetic parameters in wood and bark of fast growing trees [21][22][23][24][25][26] and herbaceous etc. [27], (4) agglomeration process-e.g., assessment of physic-mechanical properties of agglomerate and the effect of added biochar and bio-oil etc. [10,[28][29][30][31][32], (5) the torrefaction process-biomass torrefaction [33][34][35][36][37][38], hydrothermal waste carbonization, wood mixtures etc. [39,40] and the remaining group, in which the authors raised topics such as composition testing and combustion modeling in household. ...
