Easy way to heat your home free forever !–Biomass briquettes
Which is better: recycling all your paper, or soaking it and making briquettes to burn and so reducing the need for heating oil deliveries?
Every time we put out a kilogram of paper to be recycled we are effectively saving 3-4 kilowatt hours of energy – and 30 litres of water – from being used to make new paper out of virgin timber, according to environmental charity WasteWatch. That’s the potential saving. But what it doesn’t say is how much energy it takes to turn that old paper back into paper ready to be reused. (It’s also worth bearing in mind that 51% of our recycled paper is sent abroad for processing.) Soaking, processing, and transporting recycled paper is clearly an energy-intensive business. Plus, the process isn’t infinite: paper can only be recycled about five times before the fibres degrade beyond use.

The briquette makers you sometimes see advertised in newspapers (including this one) do involve quite a bit of effort to use. You need to shred and soak the waste paper first, then, once the briquettes are made, you need to store them so they can dry out. It is estimated that one broadsheet (or smaller, post-broadsheet) newspaper will make a briquette that will burn for about an hour. Broadly speaking, this is equal to one kilowatt hour of energy.(source)
A briquette (or briquet) is a compressed block of coal dust or other combustible biomass material such as charcoal, sawdust, wood chips, peat, or paper used for fuel and kindling to start a fire. The term comes from the French language and is related to brick.

A popular biomass briquette emerging in developed countries takes a waste produce such as sawdust, compresses it and then extrudes it to make a reconsistuted log that can replace firewood. It is a similar process to forming a wood pellet but on a larger scale. There are no binders involved in this process. The natural lignin in the wood binds the particles of wood together to form a solid. Burning a wood briquette is far more efficient than burning firewood. Moisture content of a briquette can be as low as 4%, whereas green firewood may be as high as 65%.
The extrusion production technology of briquettes is the process of extrusion screw wastes (straw, sunflower husks, buckwheat, etc.) or finely shredded wood waste (sawdust) under high pressure when heated from 160 to 350 C °. As shown in the table above the quality of such briquets, especially heat content, is much higher comparing with other methods like using piston presses.

Sawdust briquettes have developed over time with two distinct types: those with holes through the centre, and those that are solid. Both types are classified as briquettes but are formed using different techniques. A solid briquette is manufactured using a piston press that compresses sandwiched layers of sawdust together. Briquettes with a hole are produced with a screw press.
