BRIQUETTES a small brick made of compressed Sawdust, Leaves, Forest Waste, Sugarcane waste, Bamboo Waste, Paper Waste, Wood Shavings, MDF, Pine etc. Briquettes produce very high BTUs – over 8100 per pound, because they’re made from kiln-dried wasteby-product and produce almost no ash.

Different types of Briquettes:

Why Briquettes?

Benefits of Briquettes

Concentrated: Since briquettes are created from compressing combustible materials, they are denser, harder and more compact. Thus, they have high specific density (1200kg/ m3) and bulk density (800kg/m3) compared to 60 to 180 kg/m3 of loose bio mass. Thus, they offer a more concentrated form of energy than Firewood or Charcoal.


Slow Burning:

The compression process allows the briquettes to burn for a lot longer than if it was loose in its original condition.


More Efficient:

Along with the compactness of the briquettes is the increase in heating value (High Calorific Value: around 4000-4600) Briquettes can relatively produce more intense heat than other fuel. They have a higher practical thermal value and much lower ash content (2-10% compare to 20-40% in coal). In fact, they are 40% more efficient, as well as hotter and longer lasting than Firewood. This greater efficiency can be attributed to their low moisture and density.



This is a unique property of briquettes. Using them creates no smoke, soot or carbon deposits. Depending on the base material, they produce no or little FlyAsh. Further, briquettes do not emit gases or any toxic chemicals like sulphur etc.



Biomass is the main component in producing briquettes. So where do we get this biomass? Look around you, and there are loads of biomass materials here, there and everywhere.


Easily Transported:

Compacting biomass waste into briquettes reduces the volume by 10 times, making it much easier to store and transport than loose biomass waste. Considering their shape, size, and density, briquettes are excellent for long distance transport. Likewise, loading and unloading cost are much less and are done easier.



Since briquettes can be domestically made from plants and animal wastes, they are consequently less expensive to produce, and thereby sold at lower prices.



Briquettes make use of organic materials which are common and renewable. Hence, we are ensured of the sustainability of such fuel source.

What you are doing for environment and money by installing EcoStan Briquetting Plant?

The major advantage of using biomass briquetting plant is tax exemption, eco-friendly and have high burning efficiency than coal. Coal spread smoke when it burns but briquettes are completely eco-friendly and does not make pollution when it burns so it is also known as white coal.
