Increased sustainability with biomass briquettes

In order to reduce waste and increase efficiency, a Bendigo timber frame and truss plant is now producing biomass briquettes.

The BB Truss & Timber 6,000m2 factory is exclusively equipped with Multinail machinery and designs and manufactures roof trusses, wall frames and floor trusses for residential construction.

In producing carbon-storing timber frames and trusses, BB Truss generates a mass of offcuts and sawdust. The company now builds value by producing biomass briquettes for home heating fuel in fireplaces and stoves. These briquettes; produced under massive pressure; produce fewer greenhouse gases, burn more efficiently and are an inexpensive and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.

Retailers of stoves designed for this fuel, are selling biomass briquettes sourced from outside of Australia, which is more expensive and far less sustainable than local product, as shipping adds considerably to the carbon footprint.

For contributing to the sustainability of the city of Bendigo, the state of Victoria and the planet, BB Truss was gratified to receive a 2013 Community Sustainability Awards special commendation. The environmental award was presented by The Bendigo Sustainability Group.

This is not the first recognition for BB Truss. At the FTMA Australia National Awards in 2012, BB Truss was acclaimed the:

  • Best National Frame & Truss Plant
  • Best Overall National Frame & Truss Plant

For three consecutive years (2007-10), BB Truss attained the significant distinction of being named:

  • Australia’s Best Truss Plant
  • Victoria’s Best Truss Plant
  • Victoria’s Best Large Truss Plant

Digital Tsunami designed and developed a contemporary website for BB Truss in 2012.
