A trial production of rice husk based charcoal briquettes has been conducted by SIMEC biomass pyrolysis R&D team. The rice husk was charred by SIMEC Biomass Laboratory Pyrolysis Apparatus in R&D workshop at the end of October, 2020. Then the rice husk charcoal was converted into hollow cylinder briquettes.

Then the blended feedstock was pressed into hollow cylinder charcoal briquettes by SIMEC SYY-1000 cold briquetting machine. The models for producing various shapes of briquettes can be customized. Briquette length adjustment can be achieved due to the pressure monitoring and regulating system. 
The briquettes were dried by an exclusive dryer at 40℃ for 10 hours. 
The dried briquettes are compacted and hard with high quality.
