Studies of the addition of coffee grounds and sugarcane fibers into briquettes were investigated. The use of different biomass aimed at obtaining efficient briquettes with better biofuels characteristics and results. In this work, mechanical and thermal characterizations were studied. The higher percentage of sugarcane fibers in the briquettes promoted an increase of elastic modulus and mechanical resistance. Thermal conversion occurred in temperature range of 200-530°C presenting a devolatiliza...

This work involved the molding briquettes with use of powder of coffee and eucalyptus wood sawdust residues. The briquettes produced from biomass can be applied as replacements for other fuels used in boilers for industrial processes or even for heating home in cold regions, using simple equipment. In Brazil and in many countries a large amount of waste coffee grounds is produced and wasted in daily life and in soluble coffee industry. The wood sawdust is also a fairly common residue in Brazil, ...
