Abstract

The paper presents research aimed to determine the potential of waste biomass from the processing of mustard. Raw material for research came from the central part of Ukraine. Studies have shown that mustard residues are a valuable raw material for the production of solid biofuels in the form of briquettes or pellets. Values of quality parameters (such as calorific value, durability, density) are comparable to those found in commercial solid biofuels. Analysis of ash content showed an increased content of mineral fractions, which were the source of plant surface impurities applied by atmospheric agents (rain, wind).
