EPA Grant Number: SU834702
Title: Peanut Shell Fuel for the Gambia

A team of students from Rowan University will develop a household-scale human-powered briquette maker that will convert peanut shells into an efficient cooking fuel. Students will design, build, and test three devices. The success of the design for the briquette manufacturing apparatus will be measured by how rapidly the device can produce briquettes, how easy it is to operate, how easy it is to produce, how much the device costs, and the characteristics of the briquettes. If successful, the briquette maker will be designed such that it can be manufactured and used in The Gambia.

Challenge Area(s): Energy and Agriculture
