As a partial requirement for the award of a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Makerere University, every student is required to brainstorm gaps in their society that can be solved by designing solutions based on the knowledge they acquired in class in order to better society. After successfully designing the solution, students are required to document a project report. This document is a final year project report for the project titled “Life Cycle Assessment of Rice Husk Briquette Production in Uganda”. This document is organized in five chapters. The first chapter gives an introduction to the report. It gives a foundation and answers questions like why this project in particular. It contains the background to the project idea, problem statement, objectives, justification and scope of the project. The second chapter contains the literature review into the project idea where the methodology, Life Cycle Assessment, to be used in the project is described and the applications of the methodology discussed. The chapter also gives a summary of the rice husk briquettes production process. Chapter three entails the detailed methodology used to execute the project. The fourth chapter contains the results obtained, the interpretation or discussion of the results and the recommendations made after results analysis.
