Following a meeting earlier this year with its local MP to discuss the Government’s new Clean Air Strategy, iWM is the first company to have its briquettes tested on a number of levels by the approved Government’s Energy Testing Station to prove their suitability as a renewable source of energy.
The results showed that briquettes have a burning heat and calorific value the same as coal, but eliminate atmosphere pollutants given off when burning fossil fuel and wet wood.

The Falach 20 Cube Briquette machine is compact and will produce up to 10-25kg of cube briquettes per hour (dependent on material), producing 30 x 30mm briquettes from all different types of wood dust, including MDF.
It is only 103 x 74 x 112cm in size, with a power consumption of 1.1KW/hr, three-phase electric, with running costs of less than 20p/hr. It can reduce dust by as much as 80% in volume, which in turn reduces the cost of waste disposal. The briquettes can then be used either to heat a workshop, or sold to customers to burn on their log burners.
Rather than sending waste wood to landfill, the machines offer an environmentally-friendly way to produce renewable energy.
There are six models in the Falach range, producing from 20-100kg per hour, at competitive prices. Taking up very little floor space, these can be supplied freestanding, allowing dust to be fed directly into a hopper – alternatively, they can be sited directly under extraction systems, making emptying dust bags a thing of the past. Designed to run all day, installation is simple – just plug in and play.
Customers are encouraged to send their wood waste or visit iWM’s demonstration area in its Newark showroom – alternatively, the company is happy to arrange workshop visits and site surveys.
