Abstract
The decreasing availability of fuelwood coupled with the ever-rising prices of kerosene and cooking gas in Nigeria draws attention to consider alternative sources of energy for domestic and cottage level industrial use in the country. This research work was conducted to produce briquette from waste materials for rural and urban communities in Nigeria. Selected agricultural residues (ie rice husk, groundnut shell, shea butter husk). It was observed that the briquette charcoal produced has high calorific value (heating value) of 7,150 to 7300kcal/kg. with this heating value, food can be cooked within a short period of time. Therefore, briquette charcoal saves time and energy in monitoring the cooking material. ...
