    Update: i came up with: Design and Development of Torrefied Sawdust and Woodchips Grinding Machine for the Production of Biocoal Pellets for Coal Replacement? main idea: to build a plant that produce torrefied wood pellets which it includes the processes of torrefaction, grinding, and pelletizing sawdust and wood chips? can anyone help me to rephrase or make a better title? please? :D thanks! sorry for my bad grammar (:

    Your title is quite long, perhaps because the main idea of your paper is, if I read it correctly, HUGE!!! Don't worry though this is usually how all papers start. Your topic is very broad right now, and over the course of your research you will tend to narrow it down to a specific focus either do to advice of your professor or your own personal interests. Perhaps you are more interested in building the plant, or perhaps its the process of creating the pellets you find fascinating. Maybe its just generally the idea of a replacement to coal. Depending on how you focus your paper will become much more refined, and as a consequence it will definitely be easier to title. My advice is to talk to your professor again, and see if he knows just how broad you intend your paper to be. I know this isn't the advice you were looking for; but unfortunately given your current scope, any simplification of the title will necessarily leave out aspects you currently intend to write about (before I wrote this response, I did try for a few minutes to rephrase it but I was always leaving something out for the sake of brevity). While all of the above is good general advice, it comes from a position of uncertainty about just what you are writing this for and at what level. So if this is a lower level term paper or something of the kind, then perhaps, "Design, Development, and Production of a Next Generation Replacement for Coal." Note its short and sweet, and tries to capture the OVERALL goal of what your trying to communicate. Dont get bogged down in the details of your own paper (trust me I know where your coming from this is easier said then done). But also note my above advice makes this last point that much easier. Narrower focus means, clearer main idea and fewer extraneous details to bog you down.

    Or, "Design, Development, and Production of a BioCoal Pellets" or some variation on that theme maybe. Note though these titles are alright for school papers depending on the subject or level, but in scientific research these titles are too broad and lofty and scream out that the paper has so much to cover that it perhaps doesn't go into all that much detail. Though as I said before, I am uncertain of your level and the purpose of the paper which do factor in to how you title the paper.

    Hi! Thanks for responding! means a lot! i'm thinking about passing both, one with long and one that the one you gave me :D i intended to make it that long because the previous ones that i made (which were rejected) has shorter/narrower titles most of my classmates (who have topics that are accepted already) has long titles (really sorry for my bad english hahaha) anyway these are theirs @PlasmaFuzer
