According to Wikipedia,
"a briquette (or briquet) is a block of flammable matter which is used as fuel to start and maintain a fire. Common types of briquettes are charcoal briquettes and biomass briquettes."
"Biomass briquettes are made from agricultural waste and are a replacement for fossil fuels such as oil or coal, and can be used to heat boilers in manufacturing plants, and also have applications in developing countries. Biomass briquettes are a renewable source of energy and avoid adding fossil carbon to the atmosphere."
I've especially taken interest with biomass briquettes to fuel our cooking in our wood stove. And I was able to devise a briquette-making machine that creates home-made briquettes. This briquette-making process will be the topic in forthcoming entries in this blog. Watch for them!
