Briquettes are a proven technology that provides low-cost fuel for households and institutions. A briquette is a block of composed coal dust, charcoal dust, sawdust, wood chips or any other biomass waste. It is derived from a salvage of composite household solid waste to provide an alternative for energy. It can be used in both stoves and broilers providing an affordable technology that is a safe and cleaner energy source. 


Briquette production has created a livelihood source for many a retrenched worker living in rural areas; people living with HIV and AIDS; the illiterate – demonstrating that it is not a complicated technology; housewives; and many other people whose testimonies would overwhelm the production of this publication. These were stories narrated and translated in verbatim so as not to lose the gist and savour.
