FAQ of Briquetting Plant:


What is Briquetting?

Briquetting is the process to augment the features of biomass as a renewable energy resource by densification, a process to attain greater density and hardness utilizing pressure heating technology, resulted in less volume required for the equal intensity of energy output.  


What is biomass briquetting?

It is a densification process, where in biomass e.g. forestry residue are processed under the higher amount of pressure heating and transformed into the briquette called biomass briquettes.


What is the calorific value of biomass briquettes?

There are several types of raw material which can be used in the biomass briquetting machine to produce biomass briquettes and as each raw material possesses different aspects, the calorific value also differ accordingly. Below is the table of the calorific value of different raw material.


What type of biomass raw material is ideal to produce biomass briquettes?

Basically, there are two types of raw materials ideal for biomass briquettes, field reside and process waste. However, field residues are the best as it dries at the moment of harvesting, thus possess a high potential for biomass briquette.


Which Components are required for manufacturing Briquette?

The essential components required for producing briquette are Saw dust, Tobacco waste, Mustard Stalk, Forestry wastes, wood, Peanut-shell, Tea waste, Soybeans husk, wood chips, Coffee Husk and other Agro wastes materials.


Why during the briquetting process, Briquettes are easily bent?

Briquetting is dependent on variegated factor some of which includes: material size, type, temperature, drying degree, tolerance clearance between sleeve and mould. Among these moisture content of feedstock has a great impact. If the moisture content is kept higher than required, briquettes are formed in a bent shape.


What is the prerequisite size and moisture for briquetting?

The most appropriate size for briquetting lies is range of 0-3mm and moisture of 8-13%


Does the Briquetting Plant create pollution during process?

Briquetting Plant Project is a complete pollution free project.


Where the demonstration of running Briquetting Plant can be seen?

Clients can visit our office located in Samrat Industrial Area, Gondal Road, Rajkot for demonstration.


What is the total cost for converting raw material into Briquettes?

The converting cost is approx. Rs. 400/MT in India including Power, Labor, Wear and Tear Parts and other Misc. expenses.


In which other countries our Briquetting Machines are exported?

We export our Briquetting Machines in varied countries biz: Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, UAE, Syria, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Jordan and many more countries.

Rationale for the Deal

Opportunity knocks, but at once, better to grab it earlier to leverage. Similarly, manufacturing briquettes, is a never miss an opportunity to get better and fast revenue on the investment. It is a new venture, which has not yet gets adequate exposure in India, apparent from the 5 – 6% business actives in all the states excluding Gujarat. Today there is a long list of buyers, but are limited to pharmaceutical industries, paper industries and agro industries as it is obligatory for them to employ this fuel. However, there are thousands of more industries those can utilize briquettes as per the calorific value of the raw material. It is an opportunity to establish market and capture the existing unit and other industries and aware concerning to the numerous paybacks, thus convey for using your product.

Our objective is to stop and reduce the carbon emission as far as possible, besides producing biomass briquettes with pressure heating technology, thus avert sulphur emission and protect the environment from pollutions.


Govt. Incentives

Government incentives on the biomass briquetting project:

After thorough research on biomass briquetting venture including, biomass briquetting machine, biomass briquettes, Indian government also empower entrepreneurs investing in the biomass briquetting project through various incentives for implementation of the briquetting plants. The top incentives offered by the Indian government for biomass briquetting machine enclose:

Sales tax exemption for the first five years in Gujarat, Maharashtra, Thailand, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Pondicherry & Delhi, which is same for other states of India

The biomass briquettes are absolutely exempt from excise duty, same for biomass briquetting machine and plant

Government provides 35% of subsidy on the cost of the biomass briquetting machine

100% of depreciation on briquetting plant and machinery in the first year

No necessity of NOC from State pollution Boards

No license requirement for manufacturing industry of non predictable energy sources

Low rate of interest from government banks
