However, it is not without consequences for the environment, and Tanzania and many other African countries are rapidly losing their primary forests. Woodfuel, primarily used for cooking and home… Continue reading Briquettes – New energies against deforestation in Africa
Energy briquettes are a sustainable fuel made by biomass briquettes presses from biomass materials such as saw dusts, wood shavings, straws, rice husks, wasted border, abandoned furniture, etc. Different briquettes have different burning characteristics, making some more suitable for specific stages in your fire's life. Some briquettes are great for lighting the fire; some are best for… Continue reading Be a savvy briquette buyer
