Abstract


The aim of this paper is to present some preliminary results from experimental research on the densification process of solid high-grade biofuels. The findings presented in this paper contribute to an investigation of the stabilization time, which is an important parameter in the densification process. During the densification process, various parameters are present in the pressing chamber of the machine, and each of these parameters influences the stabilization time of the briquette. This time (procedure) is very important, because the briquette can change in dimensions and in weight throughout the stabilization process, and this can reflect negatively on the resulting briquette. This paper presents some important effects which impact the stabilization time, and obtains relationships between these effects and their influence on densification.
