Coconut charcoal briquette Indonesia – Briquettes are an energy source derived from biomass used as oil and energy derived from fossils. Different types of briquettes can be made from raw materials that we find in our daily life, such as coconut shells, rice husks, charcoal, sawdust, corn cobs, leaves, etc.
Briquettes are produced by pressing or compacting, the process aimed at increasing the calorific value per unit area of biomass to be used as alternative energy so that large amounts of energy are produced with relatively little biomass.
Coconut shells or coconut shells, which are the raw material for charcoal briquettes today, are mostly discarded. In fact, coconut shells can be used as a raw material for conversion into charcoal, which in turn can be transformed into innovative value-added products.
Indonesia is a potential supplier of coconut products
Coconut shell charcoal briquettes from Indonesia have great export potential. One factor is the quality of Indonesian coconut charcoal briquettes, which are considered the best on the international market. Coconut charcoal briquettes are a widely used alternative fuel for cooking, especially for grilling food, for example. B. Europe, Middle East countries for hookah cigarettes, while in Asia for example. For example, in South Korea and Japan, charcoal made from coconut shells is used, while in Indonesia, briquettes are used for cooking.
Restaurants because Indonesian coconut shell charcoal briquettes can generate more heat than mangrove charcoal or charcoal briquettes.

Effect of briquette type on caloric value
The calorific value of different types of briquettes. It is observed that charcoal briquettes have the highest calorific value, which is around 6058.62 cal/g, while the lowest calorific value is briquettes made from rice husks with a calorific value of 3072.76 cal/g.
Meanwhile, the caloric value of coconut charcoal briquette Indonesia is quite high, about 5,780 cal/g, and teak sawdust briquettes, 5,478.99 cal/g. The high calorific value makes combustion more efficient and saves the use of briquettes.
With a huge export market opportunity, this means demand for coconut shell raw materials will also increase. Small and medium-sized businesses should seize this opportunity to use coconut shells. Coconut charcoal briquettes are the only market where demand exceeds supply, ie. H. many requests cannot be met due to the shortage of raw materials.
In order to avoid shortages and ensure the availability of coconut shell raw materials, there is a need to sell them in the form of processed products in the future to add value and maintain product sustainability. Indonesia’s long-term natural resources. I hope that even amid the Covid-19 pandemic currently sweeping the world, this will not dampen Indonesian businessmen’s enthusiasm to enter the export market.
