How to Make Charcoal from Bamboo

Here we present you the general process of a continuous bamboo charcoal making machine making charcoal from bamboo. Or you can visit YouTube for a 3D video presentation.

1. Pretreatment: Use a dryer and crusher to ensure bamboo waste is fit for feeding requirements (moisture≤15%, size≤20mm).
2. Feeding: Transport small pieces of bamboo into the biochar reactor by the belt conveyor. as shown in the video below.

3. Pyrolysis: Heat the pyrolysis reactor for 60-90 minutes. In the hypoxic reactor, organic elements in bamboo undergo themal decomposition, forming charcoal within 15-25 minutes. The process mainly involves three steps:

  • Step 1- Dehydrate: Remove internal water;
  • Step 2- Demethylation: Remove H2、CH4、C2H6、CO and other mixed gases. Some of the combustible gases, after undergoing cyclone dust removal, water seal purification, and condensation, are recycled back into the combustion chamber to heat the main furnace.
  • Step 3- Volatile release: Remove MeOH, C2H4, tar, and other substances.
4. Cooling collection: Bamboo charcoal is safely discharged from the reactor through the water-cooled screw automatic discharger, with a temperature below 45%.
5. Exhaust gas treatment: Flue gas produced after syngas recycling undergoes multiple dedusting processes (cyclone dedusting, water spray, ceramic ring absorption, and defogging plate), meeting the EU emission standard.

Testing Report of Bamboo Charcoal

To provide a clearer overview of the quality of our final bamboo charcoal, we utilize Chinese bamboo as raw material, employing our machinery for charcoal production, and subjecting the product to testing by a third-party authoritative organization. The report reveals that the ultimate bamboo charcoal has a calorific value exceeding 5500 kcal/kg. In comparison to traditional materials, bamboo charcoal proves to be more efficient, releasing a greater amount of energy per unit volume or weight of fuel. Therefore, investing in our bamboo charcoal production machinery ensures you acquire a sustainable, efficient, and highly promising production tool, yielding substantial returns for your business.

Diverse applications of Bamboo Charcoal

Bamboo charcoal possesses advantages such as easy ignition, stable combustion, minimal pollution, excellent adsorption properties, and a lack of irritating odors. These qualities make it widely applicable across various industries.

Circle application 1 – Soil remediation: Bamboo charcoal can enhance soil’s aeration, water retention, and organic matter content, thereby promoting the growth and cultivation of bamboo forests. Of course, it can be applied in other field’s soil remediation or improvement.
Circle application 2 – Fuel: Bamboo charcoal, utilized as a renewable and eco-friendly fuel in bamboo processing factories, contributes to the sustainable development of the industry. Besides, it can be used as fuel in other places, such as power generation, and boiler heating.

Other application:

  • BBQ charcoal and Hookah charcoal: Bamboo charcoal ignites easily, burns consistently, and has a pleasant aroma. So it is suitable to serve as barbecue charcoal and hookah charcoal.
  • Carbon sequestration: Bamboo charcoal, as a form of fixed carbon with a slow decomposition rate, serves as a means of carbon sequestration. It slows down the release of carbon into the atmosphere.
  • Metal smelting reducing agent: Bamboo charcoal can be used as a chemical reducing agent in metal smelting.
  • Feed additive: Bamboo charcoal exhibits excellent adsorption capabilities, effectively absorbing harmful substances in feed. When mixed with feed, bamboo charcoal can also regulate the gastrointestinal tract of animals, promoting livestock growth.

Bamboo Charcoal Making Machine Pyrolysis vs Kiln Firing

Bamboo Charcoal Making Machine Pyrolysis
  • Principle: It uses anaerobic carbonization technology, so it is also called as carbonization machine. Carbonization furnace is the main equipment; it is heated by residual smoke in the pipeline, which can save the amount of fuel investment costs.
  • Oil yield: over 30%, stable;
  • Reaction time: 7-9h;
  • Capacity: large;
  • Automation: usually automated
  • Control: accurate PLC control;
Kiln Firing
  • Principle: bamboo is placed inside earthen kilns and subjected to controlled heating in an oxygen-limited environment. The kilns are typically constructed from locally sourced clay or earth. It employs a direct heating method using fuel (wood), where the heat generated by the combustion of the fuel at the kiln entrance rises to the top of the kiln and then diffuses into the kiln.
  • Capacity: relatively smaller;
  • Oil yield: about 20%, unstable;
  • Reaction time: 25-30d;
  • Automation: low;
  • Capacity: relatively smaller;
  • Control: By worker’s experience;
