The main sources of acquiring natural resources are forests. The most developed branch of industry is woodworking processes. Sawdust, the by-product of most woodworking processes, leaves manufacturers and facilities with fine particles of wood everywhere. Wood waste is often stored in the open air. Sawdust sometimes is burned in boilers, but still more profitable is woodworking processes (briquetting/pallet) of sawdust. Sawdust briquette machines are a time-, resource- and space-saving answer to sawdust problems in manufacturing facilities. With the growing market for briquette-based fuel, selling energy-efficient and carbon-neutral wood briquettes as a fuel source provides numerous benefits for companies, including: 1. Reducing need to store wood waste; 2. Removing airborne particles; 3. Eliminating costly disposal and landfill fees; 4. Generating a new revenue stream from briquette sales. What is more efficient, practical and cost-effective: production of briquettes or pellets? Let’s try to compare. Briquetting or pellet equipment? Sawdust pellets requires expensive and complex equipment. Maintaining and repairing cost of the equipment is also higher, and it is often sustained by manufacturer. Fractions of raw materials for Pallets of Sawdust- should be very small in some cases require additional grinding and various impurities are not allowed. At the same time, the size of raw materials for briquettes of sawdust- is not an obstacle in their production activity. Transportation and storage: Pellets are fragile products, for more loads may change their form and may crush. In contrast to the wood briquettes, the shape of finished product retains the same, also the crumbling briquettes don’t affect in burning. However, briquettes are covered with protecting crust and almost do not crumb while transshipments. Crumb does not affect combustion capability of briquettes. The cost of pellets is higher due to expensive equipment. Production labor should also be more qualified. Briquette production is cheaper due to less labor and energy intensity. The cost of equipment is mentioned above. The pellets, as a finished product, have a much narrower market to export, this is due of using specialized boilers. Briquette can be used to both: boilers and specialized in industrial or directly on fire. Acquiring bio-fuels by production briquettes / pellets generate high incomes. By using and produce bio- fuel resources, we hope that European States will provide financial support for producers and consumers of ecological fuel. At the same time, the environment will be saved. Production of Bio-briquettes can provide energy for homes and agro industrial enterprises as well. The company “Briquetting Technology” comes on European market with marketing offer of equipment for producing briquettes, delivery, installation, servicing.
