Case Study: BP 3200 briquette press at Southern Pine turns by-product into fuel, Canterbury, NZ
Southern Pine turns by-product into fuel - Waste was one of the first considerations for Southern Pine Products when it started manufacturing MDF (medium density fibreboard) products. The company opted to install a briquette press, which turns MDF dust into combustible briquettes for boiler fuel. Moffatts Flower Company, a greenhouse complex only 5km from Southern Pine, now buys all the briquettes the company produces. The saving in Southern pine's waste disposal costs is projected to be $180,000 a year and annual revenue from briquettes is projected to be around $25,000. "To implement this and turn it into a revenue stream has been fantastic - it's a textbook win-win situation," says Southern Pine managing director Michael Taylor.Sorry!
