Proposals should combine commercial viability with development impact.

Funding is provided as grants and interest free repayable grants.

HELLO members, iam LUBWAMA James Tonny, a student persuing a master of science in Renewable energy from Makerere University in Uganda. I am presently carrying out a research on the forms of crop residues suited for gasification performance in up-draft gasifiers. I basically try to investigate if the densification of crop residues can actually improve gasification of crop residues and if so, to which extent. i also bring in the economic analysis to determine the extent of densification that makes economic sense. I am dealing with three crop residues i.e coffee husks, rice husks and groundnut nut husks. I wish to briquette each of these residues at 4kpa, 8kpa, 12 kpa and 16 kpa by using both a srew briquetting press and a roll press machine for completeness of my research. i require about 20 kgs for each sample. by this message i am trying to look for anyone who can help me prepare these samples. if possible, pse tell me the cost for preparing them.
