    Abstract: A lot of agricultural residues and wastes generated in the country are improperly utilized and poorly managed. The bulk is left to decompose or blazed, resulting in environmental pollution and degradation. Studies have shown that briquetting provides a means of managing this waste as fuels however, energy efficiency of this process has not been inv... Show More
