Abstract

The present study conducted a comprehensive evaluation of the feasibility of utilizing Coffee Wood Residues and Corncobs as raw materials for the production of biomass briquettes. In this study, we examined five different compositional combinations of varying proportions of coffee wood and corncob. This notable that the briquette consisted of Coffee Wood Residues exhibited the most gradual combustion rate, at 2.19g/min. The bulk densities of the briquettes that were created exhibited a range of values, specifically falling between 0.72 and 0.90g/cm3. All types of briquettes exhibiting moisture levels ranging from 4.9% to 5.21%. The fixed carbon content, which varied between 51.83% and 53.57%. The measurements of ash content exhibited variations ranging from 7.37% to 9.92%. These findings not only emphasized the potential of utilizing Coffee Wood Residues and Corncobs as biomass fuel, but also indicated the possibility of improving the quality of briquettes by integrating biomass with higher carbon content.
