An small-scale CHP system has been proposed coupling a single-staged gasification unit with a suitably matched energy recovery device, utilising biomass pellets. Biomass pelletisation is an established industry in Northern Europe however there is no standardisation governing the quality of the pellets produced. The first objective investigated the pressure pelletisation of switchgrass for five types of material preparation. The effects of pelletisation pressure and temperature on the quality of pellets were evaluated in terms of density, strength and durability.
