The briquetting machine compresses straw from wheat, corn and other crops into fuel briquettes. Crop material that would usually be classified as waste can thus be used as a CO₂-neutral energy source for heat and electricity generation and replace non-renewable fossil fuels such as coal. The machine’s low centre of gravity compensates for vibrations as well as any noise caused in the process. Moreover, the machine guarantees high production security and operator safety.
