Production of fuel briquettes consists of the following processes:
− Preparation of raw material – mechanical fragmentation of the biomass using a biomass shredder (depending on the technology used and the type of biomass, can be one or several stages).
− Drying of the shredded biomass fraction (optionally used when the value of the biomass moisture is too high).
− Briquetting of biomass using various types of Briquetting Press machines (for example hydraulic or mechanical). Briquette is formed in the process of pressure agglomeration, in which the loose material by the action of external (compaction pressure) and internal forces (intermolecular forces and bonds) assumes a permanent, geometrical form of defined dimensions
