Pine Wood

Pine trees are a part of the softwood family. It is a fast-growing evergreen, coniferous resinous tree, that mainly grows in the Northern Hemisphere.

Pine wood is one of the major wood types when it comes to timber and wood pulp and is being used in among others: furniture, window frames, paneling, floors, and roofing. Due to the excessive use, there is a good number of pine shavings, sawdust, and offcuts available for other purposes, and here briquetting is a good possibility as pine burns cleanly and consistently with a high calorific value. This, combined with low ash content, means that pine wood possesses some of the best attributes for making high-quality briquettes with a CF Nielsen briquetting press.

Pine Wood Briquettes

C.F. Nielsen's Experience with pine Wood

CF Nielsen has been involved in a great number of briquetting projects involving pine wood, and we have thorough experience with this wood species. We have sold numerous projects both for industrial and consumer applications. Normally good quality briquettes can be produced without adding any binders, and normally the result is a great, bright-looking briquette with high density for efficient, warm, and visually appealing fires.

The largest Consumer Pine briquetting facility in the world

CF Nielsen has supplied a large German manufacturer of pallets with a briquetting line for the softwood/pine waste from their production. The highly automatic line consists of 12 BP6500 Briquetting presses, automatic saws with check weighing systems, and packaging. Each press has a capacity of 1.200-1.300 kg resulting in an hourly capacity of approx. 15 tons per hour or up to 100.000 tons per year of Ø90 mm briquettes with or without holes.

Industrial Pine briquetting

We have delivered a great number of industrial briquette solutions for wood companies that have pine wood waste from their production. The wood company thereby gains additional profit from selling briquettes from their pine shavings for renewable energy. The plants have very low operational costs, as only minimal supervision is normally needed.

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.
