This review covered recent research products on fuel-briquette with emphasis on its production technologies and physical characteristics involving shapes, volumes, resiliencies, and mechanical compressive strengths; combustion properties such as high heating values, volatile matters, moisture contents, ash contents and fixed carbon; chemical analyses for the content of components such as nitrogen, hydrogen, sulfur, oxygen and carbon; emission characterization such as and economic potentials. This review provides opportunities for investors, researchers, governments, individuals, and industries, especially on alternative forms of energy that could be harnessed from waste management and the conservation of forests and its optimal management of carbonaceous wastes and sustainable energy production. Other prominent merits of using fuel-briquettes are the conserving of time in cooking in homes and heating in industries and employment opportunities.
