Turn your manufacturing byproducts into revenue with a RUF Briquetting System.

We’ll help you create profit out of the mess.

Most manufacturers leave money on the floor.

From metal scrap to wood waste, these byproducts of construction or manufacturing processes are often considered waste, worth little. But what if they could become cost-saving, money makers instead? A modern briquetting system starts saving you money and reducing waste from day one.
