Agricultural waste has a low heating value per unit volume. By densifying the raw material through the briquetting process, it will turn into a high density and energy concentrated fuel. This makes the briquettes a profitable and durable source of energy for various purposes.

As we have mentioned before, agricultural waste products such as straw, husks and bagasse constitute a great alternative to coal and other fossil fuels. As the issue with environmental changes has become increasingly important, we constantly seek to create solutions that do not strain the environment as much as fossil fuels. By utilizing agricultural materials in ‘new countries’ one will not only contribute to the community by offering a cheap and accessible source of energy, but one will also minimize the CO2 pollution by taking the excess materials out of the fields, where they will rot, and thus offer a durable source of energy.
At C.F.Nielsen we always try to innovate and produce solutions that support global development. We are passionate about providing productions with opportunities to utilize all of their resources - also the excess material.
