The research presented in this study focuses on solid fuel and the process of preparing it for combustion. This topic is highly relevant as it plays a significant role in providing energy to the population and contributes to Ukraine's independence in the economic and energy sectors. Understanding the processes involved in solid fuel preparation is crucial for ensuring efficient energy production and minimizing negative environmental impacts. Therefore, this study aims to provide valuable insights into this area of research. The purpose of the work is to analyze the efficiency of preparation for burning solid fuel and to introduce effective tools that will allow to increase the efficiency of preparation to a new level. The article employed various methods to analyze the topic at hand, including the analytical method, deduction method, functional method, statistical method, synthesis method, and other relevant approaches. In the course of the research, the peculiarities of solid fuel and its differences with other sources from which energy is obtained were noted, errors in the preparation for the burning process of this object and the reasons for their appearance were analyzed. Ineffective methods of increasing the efficiency of preparation for burning solid fuel and their impact on the quality of this process were identified. It was determined that the process of burning solid fuel plays the most important role in increasing the efficiency of power plants of industrial enterprises and not only that.
