Lumpwood Charcoal is made from Hardwoods mainly Acacia, Ayeen, Iroko, Raintree, Eucalyptus, Mahogany and other hardwoods. The Charcoal made from these woods is dense and burns for 3.5 to 4 hours. Great care is taken to ensure complete drying of these woods before they are carbonised. Once carbonised there are quality checks to ensure adherence to 40 mm plus size.
Graded Coconut shells are carbonised, powdered and mixed with organic starch in a certain ratio before they are briquetted in machines. The size could be 50x50x28/30mm and each briquette burns for 2 to 3 hours. It is smokeless and an excellent fuel for Restaurant and BBQ cooking. The low ash ensures it gives consistent heat without a mess. These are 100% natural and organic.
These are made from any kind of a biomass waste such as sawdust, rice husk, groundnut shells, cotton, bagasse etc to give green fuel with a combustion value of 2800 Kcal to 4200 Kcal depending on the waste used. They aregenerally used for bio stoves and industrial boilers for heat and steam generation. The ash content is low with consistent strong heat.
