Briquettes: Saving the environment and saving you money!
WEIMA America, Inc. briquetting systems can significantly reduce the volume of all kinds of wood materials like hardwood or soft wood, chipboard, MDF, plywood, wood shavings, or saw dust by turning them into briquettes. This is particularly attractive to the furniture industry, saw mills and cabinetmakers. With briquette presses from WEIMA, valuable wood waste can be processed into compact briquettes that can be sold or even used for fuel.
Briquettes have a high calorific value, much higher than regular firewood and comparable to brown coal. This is brought about by a longer and more even burning process, which produces less ash.
What is good for your company is also good for nature: when a wood briquette is burned, it only returns as much CO2 to the atmosphere as is absorbed by a growing tree through photosynthesis.
Wood is a pure, natural product. We should keep it that way, even when it is in briquette form. With WEIMA briquette presses, it is possible to compact wood briquettes through the application of hydraulic pressure only – free of additives or binders. There is a compatible shredder at WEIMA America for your wood application.
