The advantages of our products

Reduction in volume -90% - CO.MA.FER. Macchine Srl

Reduction in volume -90%

Briquettes allow for sensibly reducing the bulk (depending on the type of material) compared to non-compacted wood chips and scrap, making work environments considerably more organised and efficient.

Lower handling and transport costs –80% - CO.MA.FER. Macchine Srl

Lower handling and transport costs –80%

The transformation of wood scrap and chips into compact briquettes ensures easy and practical handling, thus reducing internal and external transport costs (use of the forklift truck and, consequently, the time operators dedicate to collecting scrap).

Lower recycling costs –70% - CO.MA.FER. Macchine Srl

Lower recycling costs –70%

Briquettes allow for obtaining autonomous heating and can be commercialised, thus reducing production costs and improving your company’s impact on the environment.

Lower environmental impact - CO.MA.FER. Macchine Srl

Lower environmental impact

Briquettes allow for reducing the environmental impact due to the conditions and state of the container or collection facilities, which are often not in a good state.

Lower environmental pollution –70% - CO.MA.FER. Macchine Srl

Lower environmental pollution –70%

The transformation of wood chips and scrap into briquettes improves combustion thanks to an exceptional heat capacity. In turn, this sensibly optimises the yield resulting in less fumes generated and very limited post-combustion residues.

Higher yield +80% - CO.MA.FER. Macchine Srl

Higher yield +80%

The briquettes allows for concentrating high energy reserves in a limited volume. During the combustion phase, briquettes increase the yield quite sensibly owing to their fundamental characteristic of being compacted at extremely high pressures, as opposed to plain wood chips or scrap. Due to their exceptional heat capacity (wood briquettes have an average yield of 4,000/4,500 kcal, as much as 80% higher that the yield of firewood, which is 2,000/2,300 kcal), they retain heat for longer keeping the temperature inside the boiler firebox high. Owing to their physiological properties, they produce little smoke, have a high density, low percentage of humidity and burn slower and almost entirely with a very limited post-combustion residue. Consequently, the boilers are cleaner and require less maintenance. Due to the very low porosity of briquettes, the embers produced during combustion are denser compared to those produced by wood or by non-pressed biomass.
