Objectives: India is known for its production of tender coconuts. Crops laid throughout the year not like any other fruits or vegetables for every 3/6months. The usage of coconut is immense (especially India) like in temples, homes, drinking purpose etc. (on regular basis). We can see lots of tender coconut shells as waste after using in above places and found them near to street bins and road sides. Methods/Statistical Analysis: Our paper is focusing on utilizing that waste in to coconut Briquettes. The tender coconut will be mashed in to pieces and then conjure by special pressing machine, while pressing the coconut shell will be inflamed to remove Moisture. Briquettes produced by this procedure will be having hallow elliptical shape Thus the briquettes we are looking to replace fuel is formed. Findings: The main difference from normal coal to our paper is effective and also environment friendly. These solid briquettes can be burnt up to 2-3 hrs. Whereas normal peat only lights up to 20 minutes at the max. Applications/Improvements: The normal coal produces carbon dioxide, sometimes carbon monoxide and Sulphur oxides. But this coconut shell brick lead to clean environment. Our aim re-usage of waste and keep environment clean.
