In the recent past with the increase in the world population the industrialization and transportation increase which increase worlds energy demand which results in rise in the price of conventional fuel. So to meet the energy scarcity we have to use some renewable energy source such as biomass, but due to their low energy content, high moisture content, low density and high emission these biomass fuel can’t be directly used as a fuel. So to improve these parameters of biomass we convert it into pellets of uniform length with high energy density and less emission. Due to similar combustion properties as of coal these pellets can be used with coal in power generation. Pellet fuels (or pellets) are bio-fuels made from compressed organic matter or biomass. The popularity of wood pellets has increased tremendously in the recent year, due to their ease of use and recommended over wood-fired equipment’s by many commercial facilities and homeowners and chooses pellet boilers or stoves. They can also be used in the automated feed system as they are denser, easy to handle and superior as compared to the raw feed stock. Wood along with a range of biomass materials can be used for pellets making using different types of binder’s material and at different die pressure. The main aim of this work is to making of pellets from different biomass such as rice husk, bamboo power and water hyacinth using different binders and moisture content. In order to make pellets of good strength from different biomass different binders at required amount is used. From experimental it has been found that with the increase of binder the amount of pressure required for pelletization is decreased. Also with the increase in die temperature the natural lignin acts as binders to flow through the die hole and ultimately decrease the required die pressure.
