Abstract
Brick making is a traditional, unorganised industry, generally confined to rural and peri-urban areas (Singh A.L 2004). Apart from coal and briquettes, brick kilns use fuelwood, rice husk and dry dung for firing bricks. Agricultural biomass has many supporters now and competition for biomass use has been gradually emerging in the area. In this context, this paper constructs the prevailing and emergent market systems for agricultural biomass through market mapping technique. It provides a comparative account of biomass value chain along with supporting services and enabling business environment for two emerging uses of biomass, electricity production and brick making. Additionally, the article explores the market drivers and restraints that determine the biomass flow to the respective value chains.
