For green production of iron ore sintering, it is significant to substitute fossil fuels by biomass which is a kind of clean and renewable energy. In this paper, three kinds of biomass fuels such as charcoal, charred-straw and molded-sawdust were studied as sintering fuels. The results show that, with the proportion of biomass replacing coke breeze increasing, the vertical sintering speed raises, but the yield and the tumble index of sinter decrease, so the replacement proportion should be appropriate for satisfying the productivity and the quality of sinter. The suitable replacing proportions of charcoal, charred-straw and molded-sawdust are 40%, 20% and 15% respectively, in which the emission of COx can be decreased by 18.65%, 7.19% and 5.39%, SOx by 38.15%, 31.79% and 28.90%, NOx by 26.76%, 18.31% and 15.49% respectively.
