The Nesvizhskiy branch was formed by reorganizing the factories of the fuel industry of the Republic of Belarus in 2009 from the formerly independent peat factory “Krasnaya zvezda”, Nesvizhskiy region. The main products are: peat briquettes and peat for agriculture. Raw materials base of branch “Karolina” is situated in the area of Nesvizhskiy region. Products that the company producing are green-labelled as raw materials base is occurred to be out of the area polluted by Chernobyl NPP accident.
Peat briquettes have a high calorific value which is equivalent to low-quality brown coal. The duration of combustion and heat transfer in combustion plants is in 2-3 times higher than using firewood. So maintaining the required temperature significantly increases in time. Ash-content is low(8-15%), high degree of decomposition(35-40%) and low-lying type of accumulation provide good compression and mechanical resistance, resistance to crumbling if necessary loading and reloading of briquettes.
Qualitative characteristics of briquettes:
Size is 40 x60-65 x 180 (mm), moisture is 16-20%, ash-content is 8-10%, mechanical resistance is 95-97%, minor content up to 6%, calorific value is 3800-4200 kcal / kg. Annual production is up to 30 thousand tons. The factory sells products in the Minsk, Gomel, Mogilev regions. The factory has an opportunity both to transfer peat briquettes by road (self-delivery and centralized) and by railway within the republic.
Milled peat for composting is the most affordable, cheap, harmless component to any kind of soil for increasing fertility. The most effective use of it is as compost as well as in preparation of peat-mineral humus. Work on the logging of milling peat for composting as well as production of biohumus is organized by reservation.
