Biomass Briquette BBQ

It is about the production of biomass briquettes, which is a common practice in third world countries, like Mexico, Nepal and Philippine and it is promoted by Legacy Foundation1. In villages and rural areas, people make use of readily available waste materials, like leaves, grass, coffee, rice husk, and other agricultural waste. These raw materials are moistened and partially decomposed under black plastic for several days, then dried and pounded into small pieces. Then the material are soaked in slurry and pressed with a fuel briquette press into a cake with a center hole. Finally, the briquettes are dried in the sun for 3 to 5 days. Theproducts are simply used as a fuel.
