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 (subject to input material), 8 hours a day = 80kg per day = 400kg per a 5 day week = 40 x 10kg bags per week.
Selling 10kg for £6 gives a weekly revenue of £240 x 46 weeks / year.
Average annual working weeks including annual and Bank Holidays equating to possible annual revenue of £11,040.
Other benefits / savings per annum:
Landfill tax: £3.25 per ton
Annual production of waste 18.4 tons: saving you £59.80
Skip hire + manipulation £100 per ton in average: saving you £1,840
|briquette average production quantity and revenue:|
|time||kilograms||10 kg bags (£6 each)||value (£)|
|1 hour||10 kg||1 pcs||£6|
|1 day (8 hours)||80 kg||8 pcs||£48|
|1 week (5 days)||400 kg||40 pcs||£240|
|1 year (46 weeks)||18,400 kg||1,840 pcs||£11,040|
|cost saving||Landfill tax saving||18.4 tonnes (£3.25 / ton)||£59.80|
|cost saving||Skip hire+manipulation||18.4 tonnes (£100 / ton – average)||£1,840|
|Additional annual savings in total||£1,899.80|
Profit from thermal energy
Aside from sales revenue and saved skip hire and landfill fees, any briquette machine will pay for itself in less than a 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 = £6.
This is thermal energy (UK gas units) worth approx. £11,040 per year minus £1,829 of consumed electricity.
+ possible landfill tax and skip hire savings (i.e. + £59.80 + £1,840 respectively).
