Densification of untreated crops

The goal of this task is to improve conventional densification processes – both from equipment and operating point of view – to make these more suitable for woody as well as grassy energy crops. Although the focus is on briquetting technologies, in this task, a general comparison will be made between briquetting technologies and standard pelletizing technologies for both woody and grassy energy crops. Furthermore, it will provide optimized briquetting recipes for woody and grassy energy crops.
