The Truth about Binderless Briquetting
July 31, 2007
K.R. Komarek Inc. (Komarek) has an exclusive arrangement to supply binderless
briquetting machines to White Energy Company Limited (White Energy) for
use in White Energy's binderless coal briquetting (BCB) process. White
Energy is the exclusive licensee of the world patented BCB coal upgrading
Komarek has become aware that some companies in the market (particularly in Indonesia) are falsely claiming to have an arrangement with Komarek for the supply of binderless coal briquetting machines using the BCB or similar technology. This is untrue. Komarek has an exclusive arrangement to develop this technology with White Energy for the patented BCB technology.
In the event that companies wish to discuss the use of White Energy's binderless coal briquetting technology, White Energy should be contacted directly on the contact details below.
White Energy is a public company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and is the exclusive worldwide license holder of the binderless coal briquetting technology that was developed by Komarek in conjunction with Tra-Det Inc, the Commonwealth Scientific Research Organization (CSIRO) and the Griffin Coal Mining Company Pty Ltd. Komarek is a world leader in the design and manufacturing of roll type briquetting and compacting machines and with its partners has spent many years developing the binderless briquetting technology being commercialized by White Energy.
The process enhances relatively poor quality coal and significantly increases the coal's energy efficiency. The patented process involves the crushing and drying of high moisture coals, resulting in the reduction of the moisture content of the coal and converting the product into a higher energy content, stable product. Independent tests, by both expert engineers and coal producers, have shown the process to be more cost and operationally efficient than competing technologies. Advantages of the White Energy process involve creating a higher energy value coal; creating a physically and chemically stable product; significantly reducing transportation costs; and creating a higher value energy release with lower carbon emissions.
