The aim of the recent research is to provide stable, controllable and effective wood pellets combustion with minimum emissions. Two possibilities were chosen, investigated and analysed: wood pellets co-firing with propane-butane mixture and the use of a permanent magnet. The special pilot device was constructed in the laboratory of Heat and Mass Transfer in Institute of Physics. Two types of experiments were conducted: combustion with propane-butane supply (0.9 kW up to 1.27 kW) of wood pellets with different moisture content (W = 8%, 15%, 20% and 25%); combustion of wood pellets with applied magnetic field by using the permanent magnet, an propane-butane supply also was used. The main conclusion of the research is that co-firing and magnetic field can be used as an instrument to provide more effective burnout of volatiles and cleaner heat production.
