Financial Benefits – profit from sales or from thermal energy
* The following example illustrates how cost effective the PH Briquette machine is:
Potential annual income from briquette sales:
10kg of briquettes per hour (on average), 8 hours a day = 80kg per day = 400kg per a 5 day week = 40 x 10kg bags per week.
Selling 1 bag for £4 gives a weekly revenue of £160 x 46 weeks / year
average annual working weeks including annual and Bank Holidays equating to possible annual revenue of £7,360.00
Bags – 2,760 pieces for 20p = £552.00
Energy – 1,840 hours for 50p/hour = £920.00
PH Briquette Machine: £3,650.00
Total costs: £5,122.00
Total income: £7,360.00
Profit – first year: £2,238.00
Profit – every year thereafter: £5,888.00
Landfill tax: £40 per ton
Annual production of waste 27,6 tons: £1,104.00
Skip hire + manipulation £80 per ton in average: £2,208.00
Annual saving £2,208.00
So all in all, typically, after first year of using the machine, you will get value in money worth £5,500.00 This profit then improves every year as no further investment is necessary.
|briquette average production quantity:|

|1 hour||10 kg||1 pcs||£4|
|1 day (8 hours)||80 kg||8 pcs||£32|

* first year only
Profit from thermal energy
Aside from sales revenue and saved skip hire and landfill fees, any briquette machine will pay for itself within one year based purely on thermal energy produced from its briquettes.
PH briquette machine example:
Average production of 10 kg per hour (1kg of briquettes = 6kW) = 60 kW = £2.83.
This is thermal energy worth approx. £5,200 per year minus £920 of consumed electricity.
So all in all, in energy terms, the PH briquette machine will produce profit:
approximately £630 in the first year and
approximately £4,280 for every year thereafter
+ possible landfill tax and skip hire savings (i.e. + £1,104 + £2,208 respectively).
