Bachelor's Paper C, 15 ECTS credits
The Significance of Moisture Content and Grinding Fraction when Pelleting Biofuel
The assignment where done in both a practical and a theoretical part at Bioenergy Technology Centre in Umeň, Sweden. Raw material out of bark and raw dust where prepared so they had three different moisturizing content. Each material, at each moisturizing content, were then prepared in to three different grinding degrees. All samples where thereafter analyzed both before and after they were pelletised. The parameters that was checked was grinding fractions, moisture content, density and strength of the pellets.

Extra Course, 7.5 ECTS credits
