Every year tons of agricultural waste is generated and resulted in air pollution. However, these garbage of agro industry can be very useful and provide renewable source of energy, when converted into high density fuel briquettes without adding any binder.
For this work, we, New Life Engineering Co., brought Binderless briquetting technology in our country through our briquetting press, model BQ6175, in the year 1987. These are brought by us in Indian markets with support of a well known company, M/s. Solar Sciences Consultancies P. Ltd. During those days, there were less availability of required raw materials and limitation of the machine to work only on saw dust, due to which plant did not worked properly. Then to develop better capacity machines along with preprocessing equipments such as Biomass Briquetting Machine, Hammer Mills, Air Density Separators, Dryers, Conveying & Conditioning systems etc, M/s Solar Sciences tied-up with M/s New Life Engineering Co., Calcutta and also with M/s Hi-Tech Agro Projects Pvt. Ltd. This briquetting machines was developed on the lines of Fred Hausmann machine for 50 mm diameter briquettes that was sourced from international markets by Solar Sciences with changes to suit the manufacturing constraints.
