Abstract Since the energy consumption is growing fast, it is important to find alternative resources for the future generation energy supply. This study is going to compare the woody pellets, straw pellets and delayed harvest system biomass (switchgrass and miscanthus) from the combustion technique perspective. What problems during the thermal conversion will determine the value of herbaceous pellets lower than wood pellets? Both literature review and consulting with experts are used in the research. Although at this moment, application of herbaceous biomass will cause problems like corrosion, slagging and fouling, many solutions have already in their experimental stage. As the need of energy increase, the market for herbaceous biomass is bright.
