after some months of breaking up coal into small enough bits to fit my firebox, i have about half a bucket of dust too small to use. just wondering if if it can be burnt usefully somehow or do i have to bin it somewhere? if i had some way of binding it together into lumps (reconstituted) i could use it, rather like compressing sawdust into those briquettes that you see. maybe paraffin wax to mix it into a slurry and roll into little pellets? would be so messy and might be some residue left after burning. any ideas anyone? mind you, the coal is so cheap for the amount we use its not for the cost of it, just the recycling factor. martin...
