Özet

Densification of biomass materials can be achieved through pelletization technology, which can be used to produce useful, high value added, and salable pellets. In this study, pellets were made using peach pit (PP) with Lignite Coal Dust - coal powder (CP) at specific ratios. Pelletization was performed by a pelletizing machine having flat die and roller with a capacity of 50-60 kg/h. The pellet die had an inlet hole diameter of 11 mm, an outlet hole diameter of 7 mm and a die height of 25 mm. The pellets were the mixture of PP and CP: 100% CP, 90%CP+10%PP, 75% CP+25% PP, 50% CP+50% PP, 25% CP+75% PP, 10% CP+90% PP, and 100% PP as dry weight basis. Proximate analyses and higher heating values of the pellets were determined. Thermogravimetric and differential thermogravimetric analysis were performed. The results were presented in the study.
