Established in 2004, RUF UK sell and lease briquetting machines - a system whereby organic and inorganic waste material including wood, metals and biomass are compressed into uniformed shaped briquettes. Depending on the waste product, these briquettes can often be recycled as part of the production process or sold as fuel to generate additional revenue. In any event, briquetting waste enables businesses to improve their bottom line; not only does it significantly reduce storage, handling and transportation costs, but it also condenses the bulk of waste entering into landfill.

Briquetting waste helps businesses reduce costs and protect the environment. Introducing a RUF briquetting system in to your production process can provide a return on investment in under 18 months.
