A briquettes is basically a block of compressed biomass waste obtained from natural materials like agricultural waste, forestry waste, seed covers, coal pieces, etc. These briquettes act as the best substitute for non renewable fuel that is nature friendly. This poses no harmful effect on the environment and is atmosphere friendly. The main use of these briquettes is as a substitute to fuel, coal, cooking and even in boilers.
Briquettes is made of waste materials like groundnut shells, saw dust, sugarcane bagasse etc.. and compressed in machine to generate a uniform shaped briquette that can be used to ignite fire and generate energy.
The process of briquettes consists of following steps:
Gathering biomass waste material
Compressing to form briquette
Drying the briquettes
Advantages of Briquettes
Briquette is replaces the usage of conventional type of fuels
Considered as best renewable source of fuel and energy
It causes negligible pollution
Has great thermal calorific value
It uses bio-waste to produce briquette thus it is very cheap
They are easy to store, handle and transport from one place to another
Useful in many applications of domestic, commercial and industrial area
Low moisture content results in higher burning efficiency
