5 Ways a Briquetting System Can Boost your Business and Reduce Waste
RUF’s industrial briquetting systems are better for business and better for the environment. Here are some of the ways a briquetting system can boost your business and reduce waste.
Manufacturers across the world are making products and providing useful goods for both consumers and businesses alike. For all the challenges that come with operating a business, one of the most cumbersome tasks is finding a way to dispose of the resulting waste and scrap from the raw material input. From furniture makers to ammunition manufacturers, operations across a variety of industries suffer from managing their scrap and byproducts.
That’s where briquetting comes in. This innovative way to compact and process raw material waste and scrap has been popular in Europe and has just recently gained momentum to the United States in the past decade. RUF has been at the forefront of this adoption. Both across Europe and in the United States, manufacturers see the benefits of briquetting, both for business and for the environment.
RUF’s industrial briquetting systems are better for business and better for the environment than traditional methods of dealing with waste. Here are some of the ways a briquetting system can boost your business and reduce waste.
- Reclaim Revenue
Wood briquettes can be used or sold commercially. Many operations are adding on RUF briquetting systems to add additional streams of revenue. Metal briquettes also yield a higher scrap value than loose metal chips.
- Save Money
Recover up to 97% of expensive cutting fluids when you briquette sludge and metal scraps. Briquetting also saves time by eliminating other steps of your waste disposal process so that your employees can focus on other critical tasks.
- Handling & Transportation
Compact briquettes take up less space and allow your operation to reduce handling and transportation costs. Briquettes can reduce your scrap volume in some cases up to a factor of 20:1.
- Workplace Safety
Briquetting removes waste that would have lingered on shop floors, reduce the chance of fluid spills, and cut down particulates in your shop air (in the case of materials like sawdust).
- Go Green
Wood briquettes are a great fuel source and are carbon neutral. They release only as much carbon dioxide as was naturally absorbed during the growing process photosynthesis. Metal briquetting also allows you to extract non-recyclable products and recycle or sell the resulting briquette.
The disposal of the waste and scrap from raw material can be a challenge with the difficulties of storage, transportation and processing waste. Why not explore briquetting to see how you could boost your revenue and reduce waste. Learn more here.
