As biomass briquettes are produced from waste material, such as hardwood, sawdust, corn straw or other biomass feedstock, which makes briquettes sustainable clean energy as substitute of conventional fossil fuel: coal, oil suchlike. In addition, using wood briquettes or biomass briquettes as fuel will not cause pollution at all, meaning that briquettes are sort of preferred solid fuel by countries who have strict demands for environmental protection. When it comes to combustion, biomass briquettes have a longer burning life because of their compactness.
What's more, biomass briquettes are always produced in regular shapes when equipping with different molding parts, e.g. rectangular, hexagon or round. The well standardized shapes make briquettes easy to store and transport.
While, biomass briquettes, especially wood briquettes that originally extruded from a briquette machine can also be made into charcoal briquettes by a further briquetting process. To get charcoal briquettes, you will have to char the wood briquettes in a kiln, smouldering briquettes in a temperature as high as 1000℃.
Based on charring temperature, 3 type of charcoal briquettes can be seen on market: low temperature charcoal (under 500℃), medium temperature charcoal (under 700℃) and high temperature charcoal (1100℃-1300℃). The higher the temperature where the wood briquettes are charred, the heavier they weight and the better burning performance they have. The high temperature charcoal briquettes that you can make by GEMCO charcoal briquetting plant is the highest quality charcoal fuel that are used for exportation, sale and BBQ.
