The performance of the agro residue based briquetted cook stove was carried out with agro residue briquette and solid wood. Thermal efficiency of cook stove was determined by conducting water boiling test. The thermal efficiency of cook stove on burning briquettes was 37 % found 6.33 % more than solid wood fuel at the corresponding highest flame temperature and burning rate of solid wood of 730.2ºC and 3.03 kg/h, respectively. Thermal efficiency on burning of briquette with grate height adjustment and without grate height adjustment was found to be 35.42 % and 33.23 % which was 6.18 % higher than without grate height adjustment. The estimated cost of the system was Rs. 12000/- with 2 year and 1 month payback period and benefit cost ratio was found as 1.28.

Keywords: Biomass, Briquette, Wood, Community stove and Thermal efficiency.
