Abstract

We present a study focusing on the mechanical processing pathway of wood, including pellet feedstock size reduction,pelletization, and pellet comminution, because:
• Operators of wood suspension-fired power plants needinformation about the physical properties (i.e., size, shape,density) of milled pellet particles for optimizing particle burnout.
• An understanding of how pelletization and comminution alter the physical properties of wood is valuable for pellet producers, who want to produce pellets of desirable quality for power plants.
• Pellets after milling in coal mills are believed to show the original particle size distribution (PSD) before pelletizing.
• The effect of the size and shape of milled wood particles on thepelletizing process and pellet quality has hardly been studied.
