Many industries produce natural waste materials that are of little, or no economic value in their raw state. Indeed, just disposal of these wastes can be problematic and expensive. However, many such wastes can be valuable as food, fuel, or as chemical feedstock, if processed into a usable form. One such process is to compact the material under heat and high pressure, to produce biomass logs.
To manufacture compacted biomass logs, there are basically two compaction systems possible. The first uses auger screws, which extrude 'spun' logs, as produced by the B10 Compactors. The second uses rams (hydraulic or crank driven), which produce 'pressed' logs.
The B10 Compactor incorporates the latest state-of-the-art technology, resulting in much lighter (and therefore more portable) equipment than was ever previously possible, and at much lower cost. B10 machines have been exported to Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, France, Canada, Bulgaria, Norway, Cyprus, and to the University of Northern Sweden.
