Traditionally, almost all briquetting was made from wood residues. This was primarily because the wood briquette presses were invented in Europe and there was a demand for wood fuel.
If you want to invest in a wood briquette machine, there are many things to consider:
- Is it a good business to produce wood briquettes?
- What is the investment in a wood briquette machine and what are the costs to produce wood briquettes?
Generally, answers to these questions will depend on your wood based raw material, your production costs, logistical costs and naturally the sales price of the wood briquettes. You can find answers to these questions in our 1-2-3 step process.
Many customers believe that a wood briquette maker is the only equipment that is needed to produce wood briquettes. This is only true in some cases, where the raw material is dry and has the right size. To learn more about preparation of raw material before briquetting please go to “raw materials that are suitable for briquetting”.
