Compress. Recycle. Improve.

Wood is a natural product. Briquetting changes only the form, not the content. Wood is and remains wood. Even better – as a valuable source of energy, RUF briquettes have an even higher commercial value and an optimal CO2 balance.

RUF machines are hydraulically powered, which ensures that the wood waste is compressed under high pressure into briquettes of uniform size and hardness – without the need for binders. So even after briquetting, wood remains exactly what it is – a pure natural product.

Compressed wood burns at high temperatures, ensuring that a more even combustion process takes place. This results in a number of benefits: briquettes burn longer, more efficiently and produce less ash. The energy content and combustion behaviour of a high-density briquette equates approximately to that of lignite. The circle closes and a natural cycle is complete; wood briquettes only return as much CO2 to the atmosphere as is absorbed by a growing tree through photosynthesis.

If the material requires any kind of pre-treatment such as drying or crushing, the effort involved is significantly lower than with alternative methods of compaction. This results in considerable savings in production costs.
