The physical characteristics and combustion performance of briquettes produced from four lignocellulosic materials and its admixtures using a 5-ton HBP with a rectangular mould had been carried out.  The sole materials evaluated include sawdust, waste paper, cow dung and rice bran and its admixtures in the following proportions: Sawdust: paper (2:1), rice barn: paper (2:1), cow dung: paper (2:1), Rice bran: sawdust: paper (1:1:1) investigating the bonding properties of paper. The result shows that due to poor compressibility, sole rice bran produced loosely formed briquettes, sawdust briquettes are weak with low impact resistance and easily disintegrates with hand pressure while paper is highly compressible with, strong and stable briquettes and high impact resistance. Cow dung is poorly drained with low compressibility, but produced stable briquettes with high impact resistance when dry. Sole sawdust, rice bran and cow dung briquettes have poor combustion performance, burn with considerable amount of smoke and high ash contents. Paper mixed with the sole materials improves the performance of each briquettes resulting in excellent flame propagation, low ash contents, less smoke and good bonding properties, hence is recommended as a binding agent in briquetting.
