B.C.’s BioFlame Briquettes gets $117K boost to expand manufacturing

A Vancouver Island briquettes producer is expanding thanks to a $117,320 injection from the province through the BC Manufacturing Jobs Fund.

Chemainus-based BioFlame Briquettes manufactures briquettes from sawdust and logging residual from the forest industry.

The funding is helping BioFlame buy and commission a hammermill and briquette press to increase fibre diversity and production at its facility, and create four new jobs, the province said in a news release.

“Thanks to the BC Manufacturing Fund, BioFlame is able to acquire the necessary equipment to transform low-value wood waste into densified biomass,” BioFlame Briquettes CEO Marcus Woernle said in the release. “This waste includes construction and logging residue, allowing BioFlame to increase production and meet demand.”
