Briquetting – the process by which waste is compressed into uninformed sized bricks. Many of the economic and environmental benefits of introducing a briquetting system into production and waste management processes are well documented. Reducing the bulk entering into landfill, minimising handling, transport and storage costs of waste, as well as improving the working environment are among those. Nevertheless, there are other, equally significant benefits that should be acknowledged too.

Efficiency, sustainability, profitability – all key benefits when introducing a briquetting system. Hydraulically compacting residues such as wood, metal shavings, swarfs and sludges can reduce the bulk by a ratio of 20:1. The resulting briquettes can be re-used through the manufacturing cycle.

There are other significant benefits which business are exploiting, to literally squeeze even more profit out of their waste. Introducing a RUF briquetting machine into production processes can result in up to 90% recovery of extracted fluids for re-use.
