  • Semi-finished Charcoal Briquettes are the directly products extruded from the briquette machine. Only the surface is charred, as shown in the left of the top picture.
  • Charcoal Briquettes are the products after Complete Carbonization in Charcoal Kiln or Carbonization Furnace. Which mean that if you want to get charcoal briquettes, carbonizing equipment is needed for after-treatment.

Why Make Rice Husk Charcoal Briquettes?

This client is a locally driven environmental enthusiast looking to conserve our deteriorating nature. He has several researches which indicates that more than 400 tones of wastes are produced daily within only two cities (sampled) in Tanzania, and most of those wastes 150 tones are from the bio related products (vegetational) and papers.

On the same scenario, those two cities, more than 90 tones of wood charcoal consumed daily, which marks a serious deforestation indicator which needs to be significantly minimized and where possible eliminate. His study proved that, Briquetting Process is the ideal solution to closing that charcoal demand gap within the two cities and around the rest of the Tanzanian major cities which deteriorate our nature via wood charcoal demands. Briquette products have that sust ainable capability, and especially when there is a proper awareness campaign, controls from local governments and municipal in promoting the use of alternative resources, and bio-fuel recycled charcoal.

He was planning to raise at least 10,000 $ to initiate this project as soon as possible (probable in the next 3 or 4months). He also plans to set the same rolling solution to the rest of some cities in the East African Community which has a major crisis in deforestation cases. But first of all he want a small charcoal briquette press for trail and ensure the equipment works well for his project.

Our Clients and His Manufactured Charcoal Briquettes

He came to us and asked for support and guidance to make charcoal briquettes from rice hulls / husks, along with the best quote for rice husk charcoal briquette press.

I will be your sole customer and your ambassador since I plan to set the same rolling solution to the rest of some cities in the East African Community which has a major crisis in deforestation cases. Ideally the environment I am living in has such a huge stock of variety of biomass including coconut shells, wheat and millet husks, saw dusts and crips, pruned tree stems and leafs, dry coconut stems and leafs, grasses, sugarcane wastes, groundnuts shells,  cashew nut shells etc. This means a Crusher and a mixer are very important to me in daily bases. I will also build a kiln for carbonization process.

Types of briquettes (variety) I plan to produce will vary including cylindrical hollow of 2 to 3inches width and 15 to 20inches per peace. Other model would be pallets of round and oval to meet BBQ retailers. Hope this gives u the right picture of my demand and so guide me accordingly
Thank you.

He will concentrate first with the BBQ types since he want to make a huge market base to replace the current damage done on environment by wood fuel and charcoal makers. He will have a huge market within his city of more than 3.2million people consuming 600,000 tones of charcoal each year. About 93% of all the fuel they use come from wood and charcoal. It will be a huge market and safeguard to our environment.

What are the dimension of the furnace and what is it built from because i need to know its cost.
