Every year millions of tons of agricultural wastes and forest residues are generated. These wastes can provide a renewable source of energy by converting them into high-density Briquettes without the addition of any binder which could be used as fuel.

What we do
    Mangalam Minerals & Exports is one of the top manufactures of Biomass Briquettes in Hyderabad serving clients across India.
  • We specialise in making Briquettes as per client’s need & specification.
  • We have capacity to make available both 90mm & 70mm size briquettes.
  • We also specialise in making the best quality 8mm wood pellets.
What is Biomass?

Biomass can also refer to our newest source of renewable energy and the best way to recycle biological matter. All plants, including those from the sea and other water bodies, are considered to be biomass. Though, usually, the term refers to the not used food or materials such as straw, corncobs, husks, animal waste, garbage, and other things that we usually throw away. These materials are not useless, as most people believe them to be. These are the prime movers for creating a better world and bright future. Biomass is completely natural, and can be used as fuel and many other things.

Concept and Technology

The process of "BRIQUETTING" is the physical transformation of the loose raw material into a compact form. The form change results in a much higher specific density of the material, which increases its combustion efficiency as compared to the loose material. The residue left from crops and harvesting can be used as Biomass fuel. This way, none of it goes to waste.

Product Specification

The Biomass Briquettes are black or brown in colour. When agro-waste of cellular nature is briquetted, it produces low cost, high calorific value fuel which can become a good substitute for wood and coal. This implies the conversion of waste into a useful energy source.

The end product has the following typical approximate analysis
Ash 0.5 to 10 %
Moisture 9 % (Max)
Volatile 50 - 75 %
Fixed carbon 15 - 30 %
Gross calorific Value 3500 to 4700 kcal/kg.
Size of briquettes (Diameter) 90mm, 70mm, and 8mm
Length of Briquettes Length 50 to 300 mm
Benefits of Biomass Briquettes

Biomass briquettes offer many benefits over traditional fuels like coal, fuel oil, natural gas and propane as well as over the pre-compacted raw materials: wood chips, paper, greenwood, nutshells, and various husks, fines and fibres.


Briquettes are immeasurably cleaner than the other fuel alternatives - especially coal! Therefore, government incentives that support briquetting systems and production along with dis-incentives for coal use make briquetting solutions extremely attractive. Plus, they don't create dust.


Briquettes burn in a controlled manner, slow and efficiently. They burn well in boilers and burners. More and more, utility companies are using biomass briquettes to supplement or replace coal as a solid fuel source.

Comparison of Biomass Briquettes with other Fossil Fuels
Factors Briquettes Wood/Loose Biomass/Rice Husk Coal
Calorific Value 3800-4500 2500 to 3000 5000-5500
Ash Contents 0.5 to 10 % 20 to 25% 20 to 40%
Pollution/Poisonous effluent Smoke No Smoke No Sulphur Smoke Sulphur,Co2,phosphorous fumes
Moisture 9 %( Max) 25 to 35% 10 to 20%
Cost Rs.4.5 – 7.0 /Kg Rs. 3.5 – 4.5/kg Rs. 8.0 /kg Above
Cost Rs./Kcal 1.18 1.4 1.6
Efficiency of boiler 75% 60% 70%
Wastages/Loss 8-10% (Max) 20-25% (Min) 15-20% (Min)
Actual usable value Rs./Kcal after losses 1.29 1.75 1.92
Labor usage Single person is enough Require maximum persons in handling and cutting Require two persons
Boiler efficiency Normal Fly ash deposit on tubes Require regular maintenance High wear & tear
Handling Easy because of packed material Tough require more areas Tough material
Briquettes are an Ideal Fuel
  • Eco friendly and Renewable Energy fuel.
  • Economical and cheaper than other solid fuels i.e. Coal and Wood.
  • Pollution-free because there is no sulfur or any hazardous material.
  • Consistent high burning efficiency due to the low moisture.
  • Easy for transportation, feeding, and combustion due to uniformity in size and shape.
  • Combustion is more uniform compared to other coal.
  • Increasing demand in the market due to high rise in fossil fuels price.
