A briquette press is a tool that can be used to remove the liquid and bind the slurry into solid briquettes.  A two stage press has been designed with a hybrid lever and screw compression that produces briquettes fast and efficiently with the minimum of effort. Initially a lever is depressed to a comfortable operating level, then the lever  mechanism is locked in place and a secondary screw system further depresses a plunger and applies the additional force  necessary to to remove additional moisture.  The steel briquette press can be manufactured locally, is easily maintenaned and simple to use.  The Briquette chamber can produce four briquettes simultaneously.  Having two briquette chambers and base stands allows for increased speed an efficiency as one chamber can be filled whilst the other is being compressed.
