Why briquette the various types of materials?
By using our briquetting presses, waste chips and scrap coming from industries and the agricultural sector can be recycled and transformed into cylindrical briquettes with variable diameter (depending on the briquetting press), without having to add binders or chemical additives.
THE 6 ADVANTAGES OF BRIQUETTING:
90% reduction in volume
Briquettes allow for sensibly reducing the bulk (depending on the type of material and up to 150 times for polystyrene) compared to non-compacted scrap, making work environments considerably more organised and efficient. You can use new spaces to store products and for the production lines.
80% lower handling and transport costs
The transformation of scrap into compact briquettes ensures easy and practical handling, thus reducing internal and external transport costs (use of the forklift truck and, consequently, the time operators dedicate to collecting scrap).
70% lower recycling costs
Depending on the materials used, briquettes can be used in autonomous heating systems, as a source of income (if commercialised) or can be reused in the internal production chain, resulting in considerable energy saving.
Lower environmental impact
Briquettes allow for reducing the environmental impact due to the conditions and state of the container or collection facilities, which are often not in a good state.
Lower environmental pollution 70%
Thanks to briquettes, the number of container voyages can be drastically reduced, resulting in 70% less fumes released into the atmosphere for transporting scrap to the collection facilities.
+80% higher yield
Natural briquetted scrap such as cotton, paper, cardboard, etc. constitutes a viable alternative to traditional heating fuels as it allows for concentrating high energy reserves in a limited volume, resulting in autonomous heating and considerable ecological and financial saving. During the combustion phase, briquettes increase the yield quite sensibly owing to their fundamental characteristic of being compacted at extremely high pressures. Other briquetted materials of the agricultural sector, such as animal feed, alfalfa, maize, etc., can be used for animal nutrition. The briquettes are entirely natural and safe, as they are less flammable than fossil fuels.
We have a testing room available for our customers to test together with our specialised technicians any type of material and to present our extensive range of briquetting presses and grinders.
