Wood waste is collected from sawmills as the sole raw material for the production.
The wood waste then goes through the drying process either a rotary or jet system incorporated to a hot air generator, fueled by fine wood dust or timber waste.
The dry raw material, while still in a hot state, is then compressed into briquette form through a hot (approx 570 – 650 °F ) mold under a screw pressure of approximately 40 tons.
The pressure and the thermal energy force the Lignin(resin)to bind the wood waste under a high pressure to form sawdust briquette with density much higher than the wood itself.
The briquette is then ready for the Carbonization process.
Carbonization requires 3-5 days under high temperatures in the specially designed kiln. Cooling is first done within the kiln itself and later the charcoal is removed for external cooling using a cooling chamber.
The charcoal is then ready for packing.
