Fuel briquettes are blocks of compressed biomass material such as farming waste, charcoal dust or waste paper. They are used for fuel in households for cooking, water heating, and space heating. In Kenya, people use rewood and charcoal for cooking. The prices of rewood and charcoal have been increasing drastically, making it less affordable for most users. Briquettes are a proven technology that provides a low cost fuel for households that is locally made and an alternative to wood or charcoal. Fuel briquettes can also be used in institutions for large scale cooking, and in industries for productive use.

Biomass briquettes are made by pressing loose biomass residues, or waste, to produce compact solid blocks of different sizes and shapes. They are made by applying pressure, heat and binding agent to the loose materials to produce the briquettes of different shapes and sizes. The size and shape can be designed to match the market needs. For household use, a high surface area will enhance burning and reduction in harmful gases and smoke. Fuel briquettes can be made manually or by machines.
