Cabinotch found a way to remain environmentally responsible and reduce shipping costs while simplifying a complicated process.

How are biomass briquettes made?

Biomass briquettes are made of two things: biomass material and pressure. That’s it. There are no chemicals or additives, making them a natural product.

Step 1

Biomass materials are moved to a pre-charging chamber by a screw conveyor.

Step 2

A pre-charger presses the material into the main pressing chamber.

Step 3

The main pressing ram compresses the material into the mold and forms the briquette into its final shape and density.

Step 4

Briquettes are pushed out of the machine one at a time.
