Wood BriquettesCoals: An alternative beside Kerosene and firewood- can be produced for PNG need.

Briquette coal-efficient for cooking.

Most of the people in PNG live in the rural areas. Fuel for cooking and daily use comes from organic matter example firewood is widely used for energy requiring processes such as cooking ,warming,etc..However, in the cities and towns ,firewood source is scarce, the few who sell firewood are rural dwellers and is also expensive!
As population increased and more people want/need firewood for energy,resource supply will eventually decrease and price up. While at the same time,kerosene fuel is increasing price and supply is not promising.

One of the important biofuel to replace is Charcoal Briquette. This product can be used in stove cooking,lightening house,warming and boilers. The production is applicable for small developers given the increasing need for cheap affordable fuel supply besides traditional kerosene. It will burn efficiently and release a lot energy.

Briquetting Presses Working principle:

Briquetting is a process that biomass is compressed under high pressure and high temperature. The machine uses a large screw to grind,compress and extrude the biomass into briquettes.

The self bonding of biomass to form a briquette involves the thermo-plastic flow of the biomass. The natural lignin content in biomass is liberated under high pressure and temperature. Lignin serves as the glue in the briquetting process, binds the particles of wood together, thus binding,compressing the biomss to form into high density briquettes.

During this process, no binder need to be used. So the ouput briquette is a type of clean and green fuel that is ideal for use in furnaces, boilers and open fires.

The usage of the bio-fuel carbon:
The bio-fuel carbon output by briquetting press is a utilization of regenerated waste energy, with the higher heat than other charcoals which is made of the similar materials, smoke-free, tasteless, non-toxic. The bio-fuel carbon maintains the cleanliness and hygiene, and is suitable for family heating and barbecuing. There is a huge need in the international market, for it is capable as the substitute for the superior coal or heavy oil to the Industrial steam boiler, or the industrial raw material for the further processing into the activated carbon, mosquito coils and explosives.

They need for alternatives besides traditional fuel will increase more and more in the future.However,it remains unexplored. There are many sources that can use to convert any biomass waste to Charcoal Briquette.
