SEM Briquetting Systems
While shredding sensitive documents eliminates security concerns, it doesn’t solve disposal issues — which is where briquetting systems come in. From small systems to room-size, fully automated processes, SEM briquettors reduce large volumes of loose waste into small, manageable — and fully recyclable — briquettes that are the cornerstone of SEM VKE Green systems.
What to Know About Briquetting Systems
This is a briquette. A SEM briquettor compresses destroyed paper particles into compact pucks called briquettes, reducing total volume by about 90%! Unlike regular disintegrated paper waste, SEM briquettes are fully recyclable. (Fun fact: they can also be used as a fuel source! – campfire, anyone?)
Works With Any SEM Disintegrator
SEM briquetting systems are fully customizable to be compatible with any of SEM’s disintegrator options. That means whether you’re looking for a low volume solution like the SEM Model 1012/5 or a high volume solution like the Model 3000, a briquetting system can be combined to make a complete destruction system.
Lower Your Carbon Footprint
When using a SEM briquettor waste can be reduced by up to 90% of the original volume size. But not only is the waste reduced, it also becomes recyclable, making the briquettor solution waste 100% green.
Meet Sustainability Goals
SEM briquetting systems allow companies to meet their own internal targets for sustainability goals as well. It has never been more important to focus on where individuals and organizations can go more green. Reducing waste by 90%, lowering transportation costs, and making shredded material recyclable are just the tipping point of where you can begin.
