First briquettes are being produced during a training of site workers on Greenergia K Ltd.'s fuel production site.
To produce water hyacinth based carbonised briquettes, the company has set-up a production line that includes drying of raw materials (water hyacinth and other biomass wastes), milling them, mixing the different materials, producing briquettes with an agglomerator machine and finally drying them on drying beds in the sun.
The briquettes will be tested in a recognised laboratory and tested in the field with households and institutions during the W2E adoption trial.
