What is Briquetting?
Briqueting process converts low bulk density biomass materials into high density fuel briquettes.
In the briquetting plant, ground chacoal burned from sawdust and other wood by-products are compressed into briquettes along with a binder and other additives that helps the briquette to burn. The selection of binder and additives is related to the quality and cost of the briquettes.
Selection of Binder Materials
Charcoal is totally lack of plasticity, thus it needs addition of a binding material to hold the briquette together for transportation, briquette forming and storage. Every particle of char is coated with binder, which enhances charcoal adhesion and produces identical briquettes. After the wet pressed briquettes are dried the binding operation is completed. Starch, clay, molasses and gum Arabic are common types of briquette binders.
