Create new revenue streams with RUF straw briquetting machines 

RUF offers wood waste solutions for manufacturers across the United States

Dealing with straw waste is a costly hassle. Do you have a strategy for removing it that’s adding to your bottom line?

Whether the straw waste is from hay, corn, wheat or other agricultural crops, it must be stored in bins and facilities to ensure that it stays out of the rain, taking up space and forcing you to manage it. But a better option exists.

The benefits of straw briquettes 

Straw waste is a valuable biomass material that can be used by power and heating plants as industrial bio-fuel. While straw waste can be used in a variety of ways, including animal bedding and incineration, straw briquetting offers farmers and organizations a new revenue stream from their waste product. 

  • Eliminate the need for storage, disposal, and landfill fees 
  • Generate a new revenue stream from briquette sales
  • Create a natural product that can be used by cement plants, in boiler fuel and outdoor burners

How are straw briquettes made?

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

Step 1

Straw is 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

Straw briquettes are pushed out of the machine one at a time.
