Other Materials

Surprising as it may sound, other materials including Styrofoam, foamed plastic and paper such as bank notes and confidential documents are all ideal for briquetting. Sometimes even the smallest particle is part of a large profit, and can take on new properties in compressed briquette form. Pressing foamed plastic for instance can reduce the bulk at a rate of 30:1, saving handling, storage and transportation costs.

Briquetting can offer secure, confidential destruction and prevent notes and documents from being re-used. Polyurethane reclaimed from old refrigerators can enjoy a new life in the form of ‘safety briquettes’ used to absorb oil spills.

Your waste – your way.

Examples of materials that will briquette include;

  • Gypsum
  • Insulation foam
  • Fabric remnants
  • Banknotes
  • Styrofoam
  • Paint dust
  • Paper dust
  • Dust from electronic waste
  • PU from recycled refrigerators
  • Grinding dust
