Brief content The vineyard waste obtained from agricultural practices can be exploited as a renewable energy source according to the European Directive 2008/98/EC, which is focused on there-use, recycling and transformation of waste into energy. In this study eight Vitis vinifera species (Savignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Feteasca Regala, Busuioaca de Bohotin, Muscat Ottonel, Cabernet Sauvignon, Feteasca Neagra, Feteasca Alba) of vine-shoot wastes were studied regarding the possibility to produce solid biofuels (pellets). The vine-shoot wastes were characterized in terms of chemical compositions, calorific value, ash content and humidity. The research work was performed by partners from the VINIVITIS project which aimed to perform the recovery of vineyard wastes and their transformation into valuable compounds (liquid and solid biofuel). The possibility to produce pellets from vine-shoot waste was evaluated by screening different drying and pelletizing techniques. The pellets were chemically and structurally characterized and the correlations between the feedstock and pellets composition were evaluated.
