In 1906, the Scranton Anthracite Briquette Co. erected a plant at Scranton, Pa., near the Storrs colliery and washery of the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western railroad. The plant consists of one press of the roll, or Belgian, type, said to have a capacity of 500 tons per day of 10 hr. The Delaware, Lackawanna & Western railroad uses 200 tons of these briquettes daily on freight-locomotives, burning them mixed with No. 1 buckwheat and bituminous coal.

This was taken from: http://books.google.com/books?id=LbdfAA ... =html_text

Interesting article . A crushing plant was constructed in the 60's for a flushing project in the Tripps Park section of Scranton. After completion of the project a consortium of local indivduals tried converting the plant to make the briquettes, unsuccessfully. The building stood near 15 slope till the late 90-s.
