Ethiopia - Agricultural residue briquetting pilot projects for substitute household and industrial fuels (Vol. 2) : Annexes (English)

Agricultural residues briquettes are a viable economic alternative to increasingly scarce and costly fuelwood for both domestic and industrial fuel. If necessary, the entire production from the pilot projects can be easily absorbed by industries that presently use fuelwood or charcoal, or that have the capability to utilize fuelwood or charcoal. While the acceptance of agricultural residues briquettes in households is still undetermined, tests in typical stoves, as well as laboratory analysis, indicate that they can be used as a substitute with no major problems. The pilot projects represent only a small fraction of the potential for agricultural residues utilization. Establishing a market for these residues will have the dual benefits of reducing pressure on scarce fuelwood supplies and increasing self-reliant economic activity in Ethiopia.
