CPL Products

Coal Products

CPL Products Limited is one of Europe’s largest producer of smokeless solid fuel briquettes for use in the domestic home heating market. 

Reducing Environmental ImpactThe heart of the operation is the modern briquetting plant based in Immingham, United Kingdom, that is capable of manufacturing over 300,000 tonnes of briquettes each year.

CPL Products success is built on a range of high quality, high performance products that have become brand leaders in the market, with well known names such as Homefire, Phurnacite and Ecoal50.

CPL Products uses a proprietary manufacturing method that incorporates a percentage of renewable material (up to 50%) in each and every briquette.  The presence of renewable material in the briquettes reduces net carbon dioxide emissions by up to 40% compared to coal, making Coal Product’s briquettes more environmentally friendlier than coal and any other briquettes on the market.

CPL Products competitive advantage lies firmly within its staff members, with well established and highly experienced teams of chemists, process engineers, production operatives, maintenance crews, sales people and managers who take immense pride in their manufacturing capabilities and the products they produce.
