I, Tanfoglio Domenico, already in 1973 after the oil crisis which has brought Italy to its knees, I got to work as a pioneer in finding alternatives to oil.
So the first briquetting machine of history began to come to light, it’s that machine you need to press the sawdust and turn it into firewood. This idea was quickly copied by the large Austrian companies once i introduced the first models in the international fair of wood in Bologna.
Then, in 1980 i got the one that was the big idea of the GASIFIER called BCS: the invention was a great success since it was the only one who could respect the old law 203 which atmosphere emissions requirements were so drastic that no one could respect the regulation.
Therefore the BCS was the only energy plant that was authorized by the competent authorities. After many years of such equipments, they were built in thousands and spread all over the world especially to solve all the problems related to wastes classified as toxic and harmful.
