Derrinlough briquette factory

“Bord na Móna’s Derrinlough briquette factory is due to remain in production until 2024. The factory is currently working at full capacity, production and nationwide supply of peat briquettes is in line with last year’s volume.” Barry Cowen TD (2021)

Many fear for future of Birr briquette factory

Q: is there any production data available for the plant ? how much peat is required to make briquettes ?
