Turn your wood residues, shavings, or dust into briquettes.

For briquetting there are a lot of suitable raw materials, especially wood. Wood residues can be transformed into a valuable energy source if you briquet it.

Wood is highly suitable for the process of briquetting due to the natural content of lignin. Therefore, with our briquetting presses, you can briquette almost any wood-based material.

Wood as raw material can be used for both consumer- and industrial briquettes, and wood residues hold a special unused potential when it comes to circular economy.

In the boxes below you will find a selection of the different types of wood that our presses can briquette.

Feel free to reach out if you have any questions regarding your wood residues and the briquetting hereof. 

Upgrade to a circular economy with wood residues.

Wood residues are the byproducts of a production, for example, sawmills that have shavings and dust from their products produce a great deal of wood residues every week.
A residue that can be quite hard to handle, however, if the sawmill invests in a briquetting press, they can reach the full potential of their residues and save the trouble of transporting the wood residues.

Hardwood vs Softwood

When talking about wood as raw material for briquetting there is a distinction between hardwood and softwood. Wood is often categorized as either softwood or hardwood, softwood is conifers while hardwood is leaf-based trees.

Hardwood residues makes for excellent briquettes as the density is very high and with a high calorific value.

0,5-1,3 t/h Combining sales and production of shavings with briquettes

In the U.K. there is a large market for producing and selling bedding for horses. Most of the bedding is made from shavings from softwood. The shavings have to be clean from dust, so the dust is removed during the processing of the shavings.

One of our customers in the U.K. has decided to utilize the left over dust from the production of shavings to produce briquettes for consumers.
