Biomass Briquetting Plant Cost and Market

Bimass briquetting plants are designed for the manufacture of briquettes, solid fuel, from industrial, agriculture and forestry wastes. The briquette technology uses high mechanical pressure with no binders and chemicals applied.

Despite the concerted efforts by the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA) to promote briquetting technology through financing some projects, little success has been achieved. The plants use screw briquetting presses or piston briquetting presses for briquette manufacture purposes. The main challenges to efficient utilization of these firms have been:

  1. A lack of understanding of biomass characteristics.
  2. Technical flaws. The technical flaws have impacted on the design characteristics of biomass briquetting plant thereby derailing their efficiency.

To avert poor the poor performance, some measures have been adopted. They Measures include;

  • Educating entrepreneurs about the briquette technology.
  • Holding regular meetings with the entrepreneurs at different levels
  • Providing back-up technical services for the plants
In Thailand, there has been a success in briquetting rice husk commercially. The briquette plants in Thailand are designed for both small and high production capabilities. In general, the profitability and management of these plants are quite encouraging.

Briquetting project implementation takes the following steps
  • Financial resource mobilization, which comes after a decision is arrived at to set up the plant.
  • Setting up the production unit.

The starting point is to approach the briquetting machine manufacturer to get a firm quotation for the plant and machinery. Once the price is received, the work of setting up the plant should be entrusted to a Project Management and Execution Company (PEC) on a turnkey basis. PEC will guarantee the entrepreneur an efficient production rate.

However, you are suggested to buy the plant from a large and professinal manufacturer which have rich experience in both equipment manfacturing and project management. The most widely manufactured briquette equipment is of the standard type, with an exception of the preheater and briquette machines.


The industry can only procure this equipment from reliable vendors after a final inspection and approval by the PEC. This arrangement is meant to avert the low productivity and the inefficiencies due to mismatch of capacities between the feed preparation equipment and the briquetting equipment. Also, PEC ensures that the equipment is as reliable as the preheater. This clause is also to be emphasized because of experience with ram type biomass briquetting plants that have clearly shown ancillary equipment to be unreliable.

To save initial costs, most entrepreneurs have opted to procure poorly fabricated ancillary equipment. This move has resulted in a low performance of the biomass briquette making plants.For greater reliability PEC is authorized to provide the services on a turnkey basis. Alternative the plants can be put up on a BOT/BOOT basis, in which case the project management and the executing company have a total responsibility right from installation to commissioning for one year.

In overall, the PEC is responsible for ensuring for ensuring that the highest quality standards are adhered to within the briquette industry. This move has served to avert negative publicity to the briquette technology as a result of previous cases of poor performances. Moreover, it also arranges for the financing plans for the plants. The construction can either on Turnkey project, BOT/BOOT basis.
