    Decomposition of Food Waste and Material Composition\'s Effect on Fuel Briquette Properties
    Author(s): Jasbir Guitian*

    This study looked into the possibility of producing non-carbonized fuel briquettes from locally available municipal solid waste (MSW), such as food waste from restaurants, charcoal dust, coconut husk and shell, and sawdust. A minimal expense briquetting machine obtained from Alfaster Businesses in Kenya exhibited the idea. When compared to using regular food waste, briquettes made from decomposed food waste had a higher bulk density (+4%), a higher net calorific value (+18%), and a lower burning rate (-24%).The amounts of ash in the two different kinds of briquettes were not significantly different. The findings also indicate that the quality of briquettes and the temperatures achieved during combustion are enhanced when food waste is decomposed and mixed with tree-based raw materials like sawdust, coconut waste, or charcoal waste. In addition to reducing rural.. Read More»
