Interest in usage of biomass in power industry is starting to notice the lignocellulosic waste biomass. Various origin of biomass is reason for major differences in its physicochemical properties, however, common feature is high disintegration and often large moisture content. Usage of such material as fuel causes not only technological problems with combustion, but also is a source of logistics problems, such as un/loading and transport efficiency. Following article shows effect of various compacting techniques of lignocellulosic waste preparation for its energetic utilization. Pros and cons of compacting using roll press, hydraulic press and pelletization has been highlighted.
