- Appropriate Rural Technology Institute ARTI, Pune, India
Briquetted Charcoal from Sugarcane Trash: Dry leaves, left in field after harvest of sugarcane, are called trash. On an average, a hectare of sugarcane generates about 10 tonnes of trash. Because it has no value as cattle fodder, and because it also resists decomposition, the trash is burnt in situ. Pyrolysing the trash and converting it into fuel briquettes, can be a very profitable, small scale, rural business.
