According to Wiki; A briquette (or briquet) is a compressed block of coal dust or other combustible biomass material such as charcoal, sawdust, wood chips, peat, or paper used for fuel and kindling to start a fire.
Preparation of feedstocks
Mixing with a binder
Compaction / Briquetting
The first briquettes were known as culm and were hand-moulded with a little wet clay as a binder. These could be difficult to burn efficiently, as the unburned clay produced a large ash content, blocking airflow through a grate.
Palm Kernel is a byproduct of the production of palm fruits oil in the rural part of Western Uganda. We collect palm Kernel, crack and separate the nut from the husks. We squeezed the nuts into edible fats and animal feeds cake. We mill and turned our production waste, the husks into briquette.
Our innovation is to convert the already abundant agricultural waste like maize cob, ground nut shells, palm kernel and rice husks into briquette as a cheaper and a richer alternative to charcoal in form of cost and thermal capacity
As Green Charcoal Uganda, we are committed to serving not only Uganda, but as far as the support we receive can take us. We wont allow boarders to hinder our campaign for a sustainable ecosystem.
Ecosystems and the future
Ecosystems of the future must fulfil the different needs and requirements of humans and society.
To that end, we need to understand how processes in ecosystems work and how they are connected. We need to develop strategies and instruments that ensure the persistence of various ecosystem services and the resistance of ecosystems in times of global change and increasing pressure, because they are the foundations of life and a guarantee for the persistence and the development of human societies.
