CHARCOAL MARKET
 
 
 
 
 Raw material

The charcoal is stemming from a natural and renewable product : wood.

Woods used to the carbonization of charcoal result mainly from recycling :
  • Timber from the thinning out of plantations
  • Pruning wood
  • Off cuts from wood (joinery wood and wood from sawmill)
  • Wood from fallen trees after storms...
950 000 m3 of wood are used each year for the charcoal production and are involved in the maintenance of the forest.
 The process of combustion

To produce 1 ton of charcoal, 6 tonnes of wood are required.

The charcoal comes from the partial combustion of natural wood, in a closed environment and without air or oxygen.

The combustion allows to evict the water and the tar of the wood and to keep a maximum of pure carbon in order to obtain a constant and a quick cooking time of the food. 

At the end, the charcoal is carrying by conveyors to be dusted and graded. Then, there is a sorting between :

  • Chunks for restauration quality 
  • Means pieces for high quality 
  • Fine coal (dust) for briquettes

The fumes during the carbonization are destroyed by incineration.

 Healthy and taste cooking

Barbecue cooking is an advantage because it is without fat intake.

The charcoal cooking gives a lightly nice smoked taste, a unique and delicious flavour.

The charcoal allows slow and fine cooking for meat, fish, vegetables, fruits...
