Briquetting is the process of pressing waste materials into a solid fuel. The objects are used for burning purposes.

Charcoal is one of the most commonly used briquetting material . The briquetting material is also referred to as briquettes.

Briquettes can be made from materials like paper, fish wastes, rice coverings, food wastes or waste that is obtained after processing coconuts and coffee. The first step in the briquetting process involves the collection of material. The material is converted into smaller sizes by cutting or crushing. It is then combined with water and a binder. Binder is used to prevent falling of the material under high pressure. Clay, cement and mud are some of the commonly used types of binders. The partly dried material is pushed by briquetting presses under high pressure to convert the material into a uniform size and shape. Briquetting presses can be operated either by hand or electric motors. A variety of briquetting tools are available for briquetting presses. Some of the widely used briquetting tools are forged rings, segments for heavy loads, forged tyres and strip segments for lesser loads. The maintenance of a screw press and piston press type briquetting machine is quite difficult.
