How To Convert Daily Waste Into A Fuel Source?

Waste is something considered useless. People take daily waste as a worthless thing that can either be burnt or just dumped in landfills. But this article includes techniques to convert the daily waste into an alternative fuel source called briquettes.

For most of the people waste is nothing but worthless material left after consumption or use of main products. You will be shocked to know that waste is not always a valueless material. With some right techniques, processing and care, you can easily convert waste into an energy source.


It might sound strange, but for people indulged in energy conservation, daily waste can easily be recycled and reused at every stage of consumption. So, this does not remain just a want not thing; rather from resource efficiency point of view, daily waste becomes a useful resource.

The first step in the process is waste classification. Based on the usage and sources, daily waste can be classified into varied categories like municipal waste, residential waste, industrial waste, construction waste, biomass waste, harmful waste etc. Residential waste is the most common waste generated in huge quantities. This includes wastes created in daily usage in households, kitchens, gardens, paper, textile, plastic and other organic waste. Batteries and electronic waste is categorized as hazardous waste, so it has to be segregated carefully.

To convert the daily waste into energy resource you should first determine it for composition. Moisture content, calorific value and chemical composition are the main factors you should consider to ensure proper briquetting process. Briquettes press machines get affected by these contents in the raw material and provide varied quality briquettes. Better the composition higher will be the density of the briquettes and longer will be burning time.

Besides other things, you must check chemical composition of the raw material you want to use for conversion as briquettes. It refers to presence of different elements like carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, nitrogen and sulphur, to name a few. The chemical composition has huge impact on quality of the briquettes, their burning time and the eco-friendliness of the fuel.

Conversion Process:

1. Mechanical fragmentation of the raw material through crushing machine is the first step, which is termed as raw material preparation.

2. The next step is to dry the crushed material to ensure required moisture content for proper briquettes.

3. And the last step is to process the dried raw material in briquetting press machine to convert the daily waste into briquettes. Extreme pressure and high temperature bind the raw material into solid logs of varied shapes of different dimensions.

The briquettes produced from daily waste can be effectively used in boiler plants, industrial furnaces, domestic kitchens, thermal power stations and other uses in manufacturing units.

Now do you still think daily waste is a worthless thing?
