In the Altai region fuel will be produced from the husks of sunflower seeds

Since the beginning of next year the production of a new type of fuel will be started in the Altai Territory. The company "AgroSib-Razdolie" will process sunflower husk that remains of pressed sunflower seeds. Secondary raw materials will be pressed into briquettes. This fuel will cost less expensive than coal or wood. Additional equipment for the transition of boiler houses to a new kind of raw material is not required.

The region already has experience in the transition from coal to another, more economical fuel type. In the boiler house of Zavyalovsky district wood chips are used, and in Pospeliha there is sawdust.
