Briquette presses from WEIMA convert valuable waste into compact briquettes that can be burned to subsidize your operation‘s energy costs or sold for profit.
The economic added value for the entire furniture industry as well as for sawmills and planing mills, joineries and carpentries: In the case of wood, a volume reduction of up to 90 percent is possible – regardless of whether the wood is hard or soft solid wood, chipboard or plywood, multiplex, OSB or MDF as chips, shavings, sawdust or sanding dust.
In times of increasingly scarce raw materials and a rapid increase in the cost of energy and heat supply, the utilization of waste wood is of enormous importance. Waste from the wood processing and woodworking industry is a valuable raw material that can be efficiently used in briquette form as a fuel for energy or heat generation.
Examples from the woodworking and wood processing industry
Advantages through briquetting
1. Volume reduction of up to 90 % of the starting material
2. Reduction of dust emission
3. High pressing pressure for high briquette density
4. Reduction of fire and explosion hazard
5. Better residue handling
6. Minimized disposal costs
7. Reduction of transport and storage costs
8. User-friendly design
9. High maintenance friendliness
Wood chips and sawdust accumulate daily in trade and industrial companies and take up an enormous amount of space during storage and transport. Compact briquettes are not only space-saving, but also easier to transport and, in contrast to loose material, less inflammable. With WEIMA briquetting presses you can produce compact briquettes and use them to generate heating energy, for example in a heating oven.
Did you know?
Two kilograms of wood briquettes can replace a whole liter of heating oil.
By processing, i.e. shredding and drying to water contents of usually less than 10 %, compacted wood residues achieve a high degree of homogeneity through briquetting. Due to the cross-linking of wood fibres and the adhesive effect of the wood's own ingredients (e.g. lignin, wax), WEIMA wood briquettes are dimensionally stable without any added binders.
The WEIMA show room is equipped with shredding and briquetting machines of all sizes and technologies. This enables us to simulate your application as realistically as possible. You have the possibility to send us your material or visit us directly in Ilsfeld.

At first glance, Michigan Career and Technical Institute may seem like a traditional center for higher education. But what’s inside its walls is one of the most technically advanced woodworking institutes in the country.
CNC World, a British vendor of CNC machines, has recently started to process its wood waste mechanically in order to heat the workshop in a resource-saving manner.
Sustainability is a top priority at Ecodek. In order to achieve the company goal of carbon negative production, the British company relies on briquetting production waste with a WEIMA C 140 briquetting press.
