Tamarind is a socially and economically important fruit of India as well as Chhattisgarh. In Chhattisgarh, tamarind is produced in many small areas and sold locally by the rural people at a throw away prices. During selling they come across many problems such as handling of large volume which need significant space, consumer acceptability for its quality, high transportation cost etc. To overcome these problems there is a need of densification of the stock which can be accomplished by converting the pulp into small briquettes. Briquetting should be done at home or the site level. A manual briquetting machine would be beneficial as it does not require any fuel like electricity or animal power. The device is also easy to operate by the unskilled villagers which will not only solve the above problems to certain extent but at the same time it may provide opportunities in gearing their livelihood in a better way. This book provides information about usefulness of the briquetting machine for entrepreneurs and small scale industry workers.
