Fuel Cookies are smaller size briquettes made by compressing forestry wood waste, which are naturally bounded using a mechanical press without adding any additives to it.
What is Briquetting?
Briquetting is the process of converting low bulk density biomass into high density and energy concentrated fuel briquettes. Large numbers of briquetting facilities are set-up all over the world to replace fossil fuels in the areas located far away from mines. Briquettes of 45 to 90 mm diameter are quite useful in low capacity fixed grate firing installation. Currently we are seeing the demand of briquette rise, as more and more coal fired installations are getting retrofitted to use biomass briquettes.
