video – EWB overview and briquette production (FOST)

This short clip shows two projects I’ve worked on in Nepal. The first is an overview of the very good education and development work done by Engineers Without Borders from the University of Colorado at Boulder, and the second is the amazing work of Sanu Kaji, the director of F.O.S.T. in Nepal.

Briquette making is a process of compacting in a press machine with raw materials mostly green wastes with paper binding for efficient burning in the stoves. It is a non-charred briquettes made directly from the green wastes, kitchen wastes and business wastes such as cartoon box, newspaper, books, photocopies, egg crates and packaging wastes without plastic, tapes, pin and clips. Fuel briquettes can be made from kitchen wastes, garden, farm and forest residues.
