Briquetting Plant

Briquetting is a process of fuel manufacturing system from Agro wastes like groundnut shells, cashew nut shells, saw dust, coir pith, coffee husk, cotton stalk et.,

The best and cheif process found in experience is manufacturing briquettes from a mixture of 80% saw dust and 20% groundnut shell. In other cases like 100% groundnut shell briquettes, pulvarised is to be done which increases the production cost.

The Biomass Briquetting plant produce Briquettes from Agricultural waste, Forestry waste.

The Briquetting plant consists of

Feedling system with screw conveyor
Lubrication system
Cooling line
Electrical Panel
The above system is a Semi-Automotive one with less labour.

The Briquetting Press is the main machine forming solid bio-fuel briquettes from loose agro wastes. The press consists of main body called Skelton fabricated from 25mm steel plates which approximately weighs 1.50 M.T%. The other parts are two casting fly wheels each weighs 800kg.

Why Briquetting Plant ?

Due to the added benefits and the highlights of the project most developing countries appreciate and endorse the use of non conventional energy to substitute the rampant use of conventional fuels, and at the same time encourage resarch and development of finding newer ways

Attractiveness of the project

  • High Profitability
  • Excellent Growth potentiality
  • Ready Market.
  • Wide variety and easy availability of agro waste from various crops.
  • short generation and quick returns
  • Employment potentiality
  • Conversion of natural resources (wastage) into hi-tech energy & maintenance of ecological balance

Government incentives

The Indian Government has offered various incentives for implementation of the Briquetting Plants. Some of the highlights of the incentives offered by the Indian Government for Briquetting Plants.

  • 100% income tex free for the First five years.
  • A subsidy of 35% on the cost of the plant is provided by the Government.
  • 80% depreciation on Capital cost in the First years itself.
  • No Requirment of NoC from State pollution Boards
