Attempts were made to utilize the water treatment sludge as an alternative fuel to decrease the usage of fossil fuels. This research explored the Dinding Poultry Processing Plant (DPPP) water treatment sludge from a water treatment plant to develop of an alternative fuel briquette. The main objectives are to increase the value of the water treatment sludge and to offer an alternative route towards a sustainable and profitable disposal alternative for the water treatment sludge. DPPP Sludge was converted into a compressed form of briquette through experimental tests. This study presented the results of these studies on proximate analysis and ultimate analysis of the water treatment sludge for beneficial uses.There is also an experiment on determination of calorific value of the sludge. The results in this study showed that the water treatment sludge have high potential to be used as solid biofuel since it has comparable calorific value to the coal and higher than other conventional biomass like bagasse, rice husks and corn cobs. The moisture content in DPPP sludge, however, required further drying. By reducing moisture content to about 10 percent, the calorific value obtained reached 35000 kJ/kg. Fuel briquettes from poultry processing waste as one of the an alternative fuel is one of the profitable disposal alternative in the future
