This 3 year project investigated pelletisation techniques for mixed fuels including biomass and various fossil fuels. Pelletisation would develop fuels that would remain stable during a combustion and gasification so that the full combustion and/or gasification process can be achieved. The pelletisation process developed by the industrial partners produced a range of size and types of pellets that were tested by Ulster.

  • Pellet testing in combustion and gasification
  • Recommendations on pellet size and content
  • Testing of new pellets and evaluation of results
