Charcoal briquette machine is a good assistant which helps you to treat the waste charcoal dust as a valuable source.

Why charcoal briquette

Charcoal is a popular and convenient source of fuel. There is a high demand for charcoal blocks both domestically and commercially. They are used for cooking, heating, and other purposes, making them reliable and in short supply.

Compared to other enterprises, charcoal molding business can be a profitable and sustainable enterprise, and the cost of starting charcoal molding business is relatively low. The raw materials used for charcoal briquetting are easily available and very cheap.

Charcoal sources

Wood (sawdust) as the main raw materials, branches, straw, cornstalks, sorghum poles, corn cobs, straw, rice husks, peanut shells, bamboo chips, peanut skin, sunflower seed shells, oil tea shells, cottonseed hulls, furfural slag, wine Slag, mushroom stick, bagasse, corn cob, coconut shell, coffee shell and other agricultural wastes and livestock manure can be made into biomass fuel. The best materials are wood sawdust, shavings and bamboo chips, the biomass briquettes from which have high density and high calorific value with smokeless, odorless, non-polluting, non-explosive and flammable features. It is an internationally recognized green environmentally friendly fuel. The following are several types of biomass fuel charcoal with high carbon content, high density, long burning time and high calorific value.

Pine wood: Almost all pine can be used;

A variety of fruit trees and hardwoods, such as birch, eucalyptus, dried green willow, and some fruit trees and various bamboos, the growth period is normally between pine and softwood hard.

Charcoal sources

Charcoal sources

If you want to make biomass charcoal by the step of biomass⇒biomass briquette⇒biomass charcoal briquette, please to learn.

In order to make your raw biomass material into charcoal, you will need a carbonization furnace or something to do this work.

Prepare your raw charcoal

Before we make the charcoal briquette, let’s learn the requirement for charcoal fines and other things for charcoal briquette machine.


Small material size is always good for charcoal briquette making before you make your charcoal briquette, please check all of your charcoal fine with the proper size. We recommend you the of under 5mm for making good quality charcoal briquette.


Moisture around 25-50% (depends on lots of factors like charcoal sources, briquette machine type, pressure, etc.) is working with the charcoal briquette process, high moisture will build a briquette with high density and with low energy cost on briquetting process.

Briquette charcoal with binder

Charcoal is a material totally lacking plasticity and hence needs addition of a sticking or agglomerating material to enable a briquette to be formed. Thus Binder becomes a very important factor is the charcoal briquette making process, pure charcoal is a thing which burns with no smoke, no smell. The use of charcoal determines the type of binder it uses, for industry usage, there would be wider choices in binders.

Binder examples

starch, clay, slime, tar and pitch, molasses, resin, animal manure, sulphite liquor residues, etc.

Other additives

It is possible to add material to aid combustion of briquettes such as waxes, sodium nitrate, and so on, during manufacture to give a more acceptable product. Also, clay as a binder, silica, and so on, can be mixed with the fines to reduce the cost of the briquette. This, of course, lowers the calorific value and is merely a form of adulteration for which the user pays, though claims may be made that burning is improved. But well made briquettes are an acceptable, convenient product. The virtual absence of fines and dust and their uniformity are attractive for barbecue purposes. Generally, they sell at around the same cost per kg as lump charcoal in high price markets and have more or less the same calorific value as commercial charcoal of 10-15% moisture content. Usage of some common additives: brown coal (heat source), mineral carbon (heat source), borax, sodium nitrate (ignition aid), limestone (ash-whitening agent), raw sawdust (ignition aid).


Charcoal briquette is a very good fuel compare to biomass briquette which is also widely used. When we turn the biomass into charcoal, after a series of pyrolysis reactions, we remove the smoke, smell and only leave the carbon with the raw material, this makes the charcoal briquette with the advantage of smokeless, odorless and high burning value (80% ahead of biomass briquette) when burnt.

Charcoal briquette machine for sale – find the most suitable one

Roller briquette press machine

Briquette shape: round, pillow, square, etc

Briquette size: 10-80 mm (in diameter)

Capacity per set: 0.3-16 t/h

roller briquette press machine uses high pressure to compress the material into briquettes. This results in denser and more uniform briquettes. It is a reliable and efficient tool for producing high-quality briquettes from a range of materials. the capacity can even to 16 t/h (the best choice for large capacity charcoal briquetting).
