Picko believes in providing customers with solutions with sustainable results underpinned by our quality products as a philosophy for success.

Turn your manufactured byproducts into revenue with the proven Picko Briquetting system.  

Are you tired of wasting time and effort disposing of your company’s waste? Are you frustrated by how little value you’re getting from selling byproducts? Briquetting solves all of these challenges.


In the briquetting process particles are compacted into a larger, more usable size using a relatively dry process in which dusts or powders are formed into shapes. The densification of the product is obtained by mechanical compression through a double roll press.


Pelletizing processes are well established. This option is preferred where the process requires a smaller product size. External heat is usually applied for curing or sintering purposes. Transporting of pellets require specific conveyor systems.

From an economic and environmental perspective, agglomeration offers a variety of multidimensional benefits.

Some of the main benefits include:
Improved handling & transportation, improved end-product characteristics,
more efficient utilisation of raw materials, by-products and waste materials.
