WEIMA offers a range of briquette presses to compact dust and shavings. Save costs on labor, disposal and storage, and increase safety by controlling flammable dust. Briquettes can often be used as an alternate fuel source. No adhesives are used as a binding agent, leaving you with a clean, reusable product.

Valuable wood waste can be processed into compact briquettes and sold or used in conjunction with a boiler as a heating source. WEIMA can significantly reduce the volume of all kinds of wood materials like hardwood or soft wood, chipboard, MDF, plywood, wood shavings, or saw dust by turning them into briquettes. This is particularly attractive to the furniture industry, saw mills and cabinetmakers. Briquettes have a high calorific value, much higher than regular firewood and comparable to brown coal. This is brought about by a longer and more even burning process, which produces less ash.
