In view of the lack of compactness in traditional biomass compression processing technology, the effects of different ultrasound-assisted modes on the compaction of biomass are studied. Using biomass briquettes volume as an indicator of compression compactness, Compressed biomass experiments in three modes without ultrasound assisted, single ultrasound assisted and double ultrasound assisted under the same experimental conditions, the experiment results show that under the double ultrasonic assisted compression biomass mode, the compaction of compaction can be greatly improved and the compaction volume can be reduced. So this study has a good reference for reducing the cost of biomass briquettes in transportation and storage and improving the calorific value of biomass briquettes.
