The paper presents the possibilities of using wood, waste and energy plant biomass as a material for the production of fuels in the form of pellets. Pine sawdust, energy willow chips, sunflower husk and corn straw were analysed. The materials were pelletized. Selected physicochemical properties and elemental composition were determined. It has been shown that the best alternative to replace wood pellets can be pellets made from both energy willow and sunflower husks. Sunflower husk pellets were selected as the most promising fuel and subjected to a strategic analysis using the SWOT/TOWS method. Based on the analyses, it was shown that sunflower husk pellets, due to their competitive price, appropriate physicochemical parameters and wide availability, can be successfully used as a fuel in boilers adapted to burn wood pellets and more.

The article assesses the quality of an employee's work while performing remote work, which was introduced in connection with the pandemic of the new COVID-19 disease caused by the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which posed a threat to health and life. The research results were collected using a statistical method in the form of an Internet questionnaire. The assessment of this way of working was made on two time levels, when remote work was introduced on a massive scale and 1.5 years from then on. The survey was conducted periodically and was generally available to the units belonging to the study group for a period of three months. The survey questionnaire has been made available so that the largest number of people who meet the survey requirements have access to it. Internet portals and groups associating office workers were used.

Keywords: remote work; COVID-19; internet poll
