Pelletizing Compost for Energy Utilization
If produced compost does not meet the legal requirements for application to agricultural land, it is not suitable for application in soil, and can therefore be tested as an alternative fuel when co-fired with fossil fuels. Low-quality compost that cannot be applied to soils or for which there is no demand can be energy utilized for co-incineration with fuels of high calorific value. The pelletization of compost represents a type of processing that makes the handling of the material easier and enables more accurate dosing.
