The heat treatment of wood (i.e. torrefaction) followed by densification of wood particles (e.g. by briquetting) may be used as a process to improve homogeneity and energy properties of wood for use as a solid fuel. The wood of Eucalyptus grandis and Eucalyptus spp. were treated at 180, 200 and 220 °C for 60 min under a nitrogen atmosphere. Briquettes were produced with untreated and heat-treated ...
