Charcoal production for cooking and heating Bio Energy

Generally, charcoal production through pyrolysis is maximised in a process of low temperatures and slow heating rates, the so-called carbonisation. Charcoal is used as a domestic fuel for cooking and heating in many developing countries. It is the most popular barbecue fuel throughout the world. Its advantages when used as a domestic fuel are ...

Cooking with Charcoal - energypedia

Just considering the energy content of firewood and charcoal, one might come to the conclusion, that charcoal is the more preferable cooking fuel. But the carbonization of firewood into charcoal also requires energy. Assuming an average kiln efficiency between 10% - 30%, the conversion of 1kg wood yields only 0.1 – 0.3 kg of charcoal. In other words, in order to produce 1 kg of charcoal with ...
