Producing briquettes is becoming ever more popular within the wood industries. It involves the compressing of the waste material into small logs which then can be resold as fuel. It is a very effective way of converting waste into a product for resale and both in helping the environment and reducing the carbon footprint of the business. The waste is compressed to form logs using no glues or additives and loading can be automatic or manual. Waste material generally has to have a moisture content of no more than 13% and no longer than 30mm long.
