Abstract It has been possible to pelletize Wood-Miscanthus mixtures (12.5 - 25 & 50%) without modifying production process settings of a softwood pellets plant. Pure Miscanthus material tested in the same conditions has led to unstable production, mainly explained by hammermill overfeeding. The unstable production has been identified as the main responsible factor of the low quality of pellets produced with pure Miscanthus for these trials. The produced pellets were tested in a 25 kW boiler and compared with agro-pellets of various origins: winter barley straw, rapeseed straw, reed, old hay, Miscanthus, &wood pellets. During the trials, 02, CO, CO2, CH4, SO2 and NO,, emissions were measured. The flue gas chlorine (content was also determined and the data were linked to the specifications of the fuels used. Trials showed that pure agro-pellets do not reach the combustion quality of wood or wood- Miscanthus mixes.
