Viticulture and viniculture processes produce different organic waste, particularly grape marc (pomace), wood mass, to name but a few. Concerning the waste management, research finds out new, wastefree technologies and the use of waste as biofuel. The objective of this work is to determine the net calorific value of selected waste materials by the calorimetric method for its further use in solid biofuels production. Results show that comparable values of net calorific value are for the samples of wood cane, wood trunk, grape marc, grape stalks, cane pellets and ranged from 16.24 to 17.79 MJ·kg-1 . The higher net calorific value had grape seeds (21.14 MJ·kg-1 ) and grape bagasse pellets (19.62 MJ·kg-1 ) and the lowest net calorific value was determined for filter cellulose sheets (9.38 MJ·kg-1 ). Based on data of the calorific values of tested samples, it is clear, that the majority of tested materials have very good calorific values.
