ABSTRACT
Lowering the share of fossil fuel in energy production has become more important in
recent years. Solid bio-fuels are an applicable option. Their popularity keeps increasing year by year. Their mechanical resistance is one of observed criteria. Mechanical resistance and strength of solid bio-fuels are tested in the frame of the diploma thesis. Results imply that water content is most important for the mechanical resistance.

Keywords: pellets, biomass, biofuel, strength
