Some years ago, Against the Grain owner, David Spees, purchased a German-made machine that turned all our timber sawdust into highly efficient, clean burning cylindrical briquettes. This was achieved by hydraulic compression alone... no glues, no additives, just pure sawdust.
These eco briquettes have been popular with Blue Mountains locals in the cooler months for wood burners, fireplaces and outdoor fire-pits. But speaking to our regulars, we soon found out they had a multitude of uses including compost, mulch, chicken coops, garden paths and more.
In 2017 together with Cleanaway we successfully applied for a Bin Trim rebate through the Environmental Protection Authority. This rebate went a small way toward the purchase of a more powerful machine capable of producing a larger rectangular shaped briquette.
These improved briquettes are super efficient - you use less fuel to heat your home, get a hotter fire with less ash and less creosote build up in your flue. Regular firewood has a moisture content of up around 26%, our briquettes contain less than 12% - it is the moisture that reduces heat output, creating more smoke emissions and creosote build up.
Switch from firewood to our briquettes and reduce your own carbon footprint... and give away your axe!
