I got a reply to my email requesting cost of their brickettes. The following is what I received from Brookville Company Sales.

Currenly our price per ton is $425 FOB.

I'll stick with UAE at $165 a ton.

That price is about what I would of expected.
After all it was that same type of $165.00 per ton coal that they used in the beginning to manufacture it into the briquettes. So, their price would reflect their added value.

Hello all,

Please be patient as we are still setting up our website.

As for some of the questions regarding the briquettes:

We currently produce one size which would equal a stoker size. As with the ash, we use anthracite fines which do ad to the ash content. The BTU's are based upon product drying. The sample that was sent was from a test batch on the first run. We wanted to at least get it tested to see what we are dealing with.

We are looking at other suppliers to lower the price of the product. Please bear with us as we are still starting this business. We have sold two full container loads to ship to the UK and the burning quality of this product is very good.

Any further questions, please do not hesitate to email us: <removed>

The UK might be your best market but not at $425 a ton plus shipping. There is still a large base of AGA coal stoves over there that the inventor Gustav Dahlen (a Swede) designed for Phurnacite which is close to your product. The AGA/Rayburn fire boxes are small and need a high BTU fuel when they do very well in a climate that is generally not as cold as the east coast here (forget last winter). With oil going through the roof that AGA base is not going to get any smaller and phurnacite is now imported into the UK and of crummy quality. Don't think of AGAs as the $20,000 gas/oil/electric (shoddily made) gigamonsters made for idiots sold in the US today - that is just marketing. Go onto youtube and watch Martha tell us how she has a coal AGA in her barn ---HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. Oh she has one all right that was given to her as a promo and I am sure is now used as a saddle rack.

This might be your product niche - good luck.

We have run another production which is more to our liking (and hopefully yours as well):

Product: TruBrite
Moisture: 5.05%
Ash: 11.35%
Volatile Matter: 14.87%
Fixed Carbon: 73.79%
Sulfur: 0.95%
BTU’s 12,551

Remember, we have been producing charcoal for over 100 years and this is a new line. We had to get a larger quanitity of anthracite under a new contract. At this rate, we are looking now at pricing around $225/ton bagged.
