Consumer vs. Industrial solution

One of the first questions we ask here at C.F. Nielsen is whether you wish to make consumer briquettes or industrial briquettes. Whether you would be able to make consumer briquettes depends on the raw material you have, while industrial briquettes can be made from any raw material that we are able to briquette. Wood as raw material is very suitable for consumer briquettes and especially hardwood makes premium consumer briquettes.
