ABSTRACT
In this paper, commercially available biomass materials suited to sinter making have been identified as an alternative source of fuel to coke breeze. A study was carried out into the use of wood charcoal, sawdust, pine and oak as a supplementary fuel in the iron-ore sintering process. The application of renewable reducing agents in the iron-ore sintering process depends on their chemical and physical properties. In this reason were analysed the possibility of using of biomass in the agglomeration process in terms of its chemical and physical properties and its confrontation with the properties of the currently used coke breeze. Biomass was characterized according to its chemical composition and chemical composition of ash. The obtained data were confronted with data for coke breeze, and from the results, conclusions were made about the possible use of selected types of biomass as an alternative fuel in the process of iron ore agglomerate production. The results of analysis of selected biomass types suggest that the orientation on their use in agglomeration process is a correct direction.

Keywords: fuel, biomass, sintering process, coke breeze, chemical properties, physical properties
