Manufacturing/Building Method

Mass produced in Uganda using locally collected waste. Briketi Briquettes are made from banana peelings. The peelings are spread in the sun until they are dry.

Cassava flour mixed with water is added to the crushed stock to help it stick together. The solution is put into a machine which partitions it into briquettes.
