There are some facilities at His Majesty's Fuel Research Station for experimenting in the making of briquettes, but no systematic examination of briquetting processes has been carried out. The work done has been ancillary to other investigations, and has been described in the Report of the Fuel Research Board for the period ended the 31st December, 1924.
