Briquetting of dry biomass

Problem statement

Production of voluminous sidestream biomasses not being utilized in an optimal way.

Executive summary

Compacts dry biomass (straw, woodchips, bagasse many more) for transport/burning in small stoves.

Technology description

Briquetting equipment for numerous types of waste biomasses, such as straw, woodchips, sawdust, bagasse, coffee husk, groundnut shells, etc. The compaction of the biomass makes transport, distribution and storage easier and more cost-effective. At the same time, it makes it possible to burn the biomass. Often if not compacted, the biomass could not be burned.
