Borregaard offers a range of sustainable, bio-based binders for the agglomeration of raw materials and process fines. Our additives improve the quality, consistency and strength of briquettes, pellets, granules and extruded products. These lignin-based biopolymers are easy and safe to handle, environmentally friendly and non-toxic.
In many industries, valuable process fines need to be agglomerated before further processing. By processing fines that traditionally have been put to landfill, waste can be turned into value.
Some examples of materials that can benefit from our sustainable binding agents:
|Alloys||Graphite||Mill scale fines|
|Anthracite||Iron ore fines||Petcoke fines|
|Biocarbon / Carbon fines||Manganese oxide fines||Polyurethane foam|
|Biomass / Wood||Metal oxide waste||Sawmill dust|
|Coal fines||Metal rich flue streams|
|Filter dust||Metallurgical waste fines|
- Improved wet and dry strength
- Reduced cracks and fines rejects
- Burned off/carbonised at high temperatures
- Increased production throughput
- Improved durability of final agglomerates
- Sustainable, bio-based products
