During the last decade, Hume Doors has purchased briquetting lines from C.F. Nielsen for briquetting of 100% MDF dust and for mixes of solid wood and MDF. Recently Hume Doors bought another 7 BP3200, of which 4 lines are to be supplied to their factory in Ipoh, Malaysia.
MDF board has become a popular alternative to particle board and solid wood alternatives. The waste from MDF, especially the dust has become a challenge for many of the manufacturers using MDF. C.F. Nielsen offers a solution that can overcome the dust problem, and simultaneously turn waste into a valuable fuel, that is easily stored, transported and used in industrial boilers. Before making briquettes, Hume Doors had high costs for transportation of the dust and high costs for the landfill.
All machines acquired are the BP3200 briquetting press producing briquettes with a diameter of 60 mm and around 500 kg per hour.
