Briquettes produced from briquetting of biomass by Briquettes Plant are fairly good substitute for coal, lignite, firewood and offer numerous advantages:-
-Briquettes are cheaper than COAL, OIL or LIGNITE once used cannot be replaced.
-There is no sulfur in briquettes.
-Biomass briquettes have a higher practical thermal value and much lower ash content
(2-10% as compared to 20-40 % in coal).
-There is no fly ash when burning briquettes.
-Briquettes have a consistent quality, have high burning efficiency, are ideally sized for complete
-Combustion is more uniform compared to coal and boiler response to changes in steam
requirements is faster due to higher quantity of volatile matter in briquettes.
-Unlike coal, lignite or oil, briquettes are produced from renewable source of energy, biomass.
-Briquettes have high specific density (1200 kg/m3) compared to 60 to 180 kg/m3 of loose
-Loading/unloading and transportation costs are much less and storage requirement is
-Briquettes are clean to handle and can be packed in bags for ease of handling and storage.
-Briquettes are usually produced near the consumption centers and supplies do not depend on
erratic transport from long distances.
