Wood chips, wood branches or other waste wood produced by certain agricultural activities or forestry of human have large potential of use in fact. Instead of being discarded or buried or burned, we can make them into wood charcoals which have higher value. The technology we use is called carbonization. What is carbonization?  It is a kind of conversion of an organic substance into carbon or a carbon-containing residue through pyrolysis or destructive distillation. It is often used in organic chemistry with reference to the generation of coal gas and coal tar from raw coal.

How to Make Charcoal from Wood with GreenBeston Biomass Carbonization Machine

1.Belt conveyor transmits the wood branches or waste wood to the constant weight feeder. If the branches are big, they will be shredded into small pieces by a shredder or crusher before conveying. The diameter is no bigger than 200 mm and the thickness no bigger than 30 mm. But it is adjustable in accordance with actual need of the buyers.
2.Feed the wood into the upper layer of the machine- the preheating drying host for drying until the water contain below 20% and then the dried wood fall down freely into the carbonization host automatically.
3.And then, it is the main part of the process for making charcoal: high-temperature pyrolysis, smoke discharge, sulphur removing and then carbon collection will occur successively.
4.After all the above steps completed, the charcoal will be discharged from the powder discharge port. At the same time, the flue gas generated during the working process will be collected to supply heat for the dryer system. It will help you save energy and reduce cost.

If you’d like to improve the fuel utilization and your working efficiency, we suggest a gasifier. With the function of gasifier, combustible gas generated from biomass pyrolysis will go to the cyclone dust collector to undergo spraying and de-dusting and then separate into wood tar and vinegar which can be introduced by the draft fan to heat the carbonization furnace from the outside.

With the help of the pyrolysis and carbonization technology and our charcoal manufacturing machine, you will find how to make wood charcoal. The process is easy, safe and pose no pollution to the environment.

After you figure out how to make charcoal from wood, I believe you will also know how to make charcoal from coconut shell, saw dust, rice husk or sludge sewage. Since they are all belong to organic wastes, there may be slight differences during the pre-treatment phase, but they share the similar recycling process to charcoal.
