How briquettes are made

Waste wood from the forests and other operations is cut into manageable lengths and then put through a special crusher which simultaneously chips and grinds the wood into the required size. The sawdust is then dried to reduce its moisture level to below 15%.

The sawdust is the fed into a hopper and from that into a briquette machine which extrudes a long briquette length. These lengths are cut into the required briquettes size

The briquettes can be turned into charcoal. The product the packed in bags of different weights and sent to markets around USA and the world
