This study was that every year millions of tons of agricultural wastes are generated in the country. Briquettes produced from agro residues are fairly good substitute for coal, lignite and fire wood. Briquettes have high specific density (1200-1450 kg/m3) compare to 60 to 180 kg/m3 of loose agro residues. Loading / unloading, transportation and storage costs of agro residues are drastically reduced if they are counted in the form of briquettes. Formation of briquettes at the very site of its production stops air pollution to a large extent. In this paper an attempt is made to design and fabricate briquetting machine for any kind of agriwaste in any season. Effect of moisture content in agro residues and binders used have been studied on briquettes density power consumption / kg of briquette produces calorific value / kg of briquette. Thermal efficiency of chulha (local stove) using prepared briquette was obtained to be 5%.
