Borotik briquette is basically a cylindrical capsule of saw dust and wood chips compressed in a single slider crank compressor to increase the specific density of raw materials by about 4-5 times. The advantage is that they make better alternative to firewood as fuel in boilers and similar appliances. On account of its high density, its heat quantity increases significantly, offering a cleaner, richer fuel alternative. Biomass briquettes also have high calorific value per kg saving around 30-40% of boiler fuel costs due to the fact that moisture content of briquette is as low as 45 compared to about 60% of firewood.
