Unfortunately, the normal charcoal comes with many drawbacks. First, it leads to massive deforestation due to cutting down of trees, environmental pollution because of smoke, and also respiratory ailments because of inhaling harmful fumes and gases such as carbon monoxide. You can however produce better and safer charcoal by relying on a charcoal type known as briquette.
What is Charcoal Briquette?
Briquette is a type of charcoal that is made from waste materials that remain after processing raw materials. Unlike the ordinary charcoal, the materials are not derived from cutting down trees or burning freshly-cut lumber, firewood or timber. Instead, it is made by mixing and compressing residues from agricultural, milling, and industrial processes. Common compounds include wood shavings, sawdust, wheat straw, cotton stalk, groundnut shell, wood chippings, sunflower stalk, tobacco waste, palm fiber, coconut shell, rice husk, coffee husk, soybean husk, mustard stalk, bamboo waste, and paddy straw among other things. In order to turn these raw /waste materials into charcoal briquette you need to rely on a biomass briquette plant.

What is A Biomass Briquette Plant?

A biomass briquette plant helps turn biomass into useful charcoal known as briquettes. It consists of several sections that operate in a sequence. These are:
  1. Hammer Mill: Also known as the crusher, this section pounds and crushes the raw materials into finer particles.
  2. Conveyor: This is the belt that moves the crushed material into a mixing plant.
  3. Mixer: The dry crushed matter is mixed to form a slurry /paste that are easy to mold into different shapes.
  4. Briquette/Mould: This section transforms the slurry into the required shape. You may choose rectangular, oblong, circular, solid, hollow, pellets or any other.
  5. Drying: The briquettes are allowed to dry and they become more solid and less-dense.
  6. Carbonization: To make charcoal briquettes, charcoal kiln is necessary to turn biomass briquettes into charcoal briquettes.
  7. Packaging: The dry briquettes are packed in different sizes according to the target end user.
