It is essential to know whether the Briquette Press technology was economically viable or not. Therefore an attempt was made for estimation of economics of the Biomass briquettes prepared by Briquette Press technology from biomass. Thebio briquettes were prepared on screw press extruder briquette press for different combinations of major biomass. The prepared bio briquettes after sun drying were subjected to various tests for assessing the quality of fuel.
Compared to fossil fuels, the biomass briquettes produce low net total greenhouse gas emissions because the materials used are already a part of the carbon cycle. The most common use of the briquettes biomass is in the developing world, where energy sources are not as widely available. Lot of companies are using this technology of briquette press, as it is eco friendly and makes best use of waste.
