Biomass briquettes

Biomass briquettes:

In recent times biomass briquettes are being used as a fuel alternative for the power and electricity generation sector.

  • Biomass briquettes: are made up of compact blocks of organic materials, such as agricultural residues, forestry wastes, or industrial by-products.
  • These are used for heating, cooking fuel and electricity generation usually in developing countries that do not have access to more traditional fuel source.
  • Bio-briquettes can be created from easily available biomass waste often found in rural settings.
  • These can be made by hand from any freely available organic matter, including invasive species and agro-waste.
  • Biomass briquettes are carbon-neutral, meaning they release no additional carbon dioxide into the atmosphere when burned.
  • By reducing reliance on fossil fuels, the adoption of biomass briquettes helps mitigate greenhouse gas emissions, thus contributing to climate change mitigation efforts.
  • By diverting residues towards productive use, biomass briquettes play a crucial role in waste management and carbon sequestration, further enhancing their environmental credentials.
