Here is a great story about a PhD student Joel Chaney, from the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Nottingham, who has developed a method of producing briquettes from the waste of the banana plant (roots, leafs, banana skins).

To make the banana briquettes, the tools and technology required is minimal.
