In our country briquetting process is carried out in the screw-press type briquetting machine on which mainly briquetting of rice husk are commercially produced. Other alternatives are often run in commercial purpose because of various problem faced. But to become dependent on a single raw material will cause hamper when there is scarcity of that material in the market. Thus to take the full advantage of the locally available raw materials different mixture of those are considered for producing briquetting. An experimental investigation has been conducted to evaluate the properties of different raw materials and their products from a briquetting machine. Significant properties of the product from different mixture of raw materials with different compositions have also been determined. A screw press type briquetting machine with heated die has been used for producing briquettes. An economic analysis of the system has also been performed in this study.
