Abstract: Today a vast shortage of fuel made us humans to search for the alternative sources of energy. These sources took various forms as natural as well as from the waste. Waste from best was the tagline for many years. Objective of this was to get best energy source with less harm to the environment. Thus a new term called Biomass (Coir pith) came to birth. It was nothing but using waste from food industries and household for obtaining the fuels. These fuels were in various forms liquid, semi solid viz. Thus further fuels were stored in form of their state so that they can be used at the time of necessity. Here we are manufacturing a device which in output gives a coir pith briquette which can be used as per need. The production value was found to be lower due to the lower binder requirement for the new machine, which is lower by about 65%. The starting moisture content of the feedstock required for this machine is lower by about 30 % compared to the best alternative, which results in shorter drying time for the fuel briquettes produced. The quality of the produced briquettes was found to be better and of lower smoke generation when burned due to the lower binder content.
