Carbonization Technology
Market profit analysis

Firstly,  sawdust/wood/bamboo/rice husk/palm shell/coconut shell charcoal making machine can process a wide range of raw materials. And the raw material costs are generally low. Secondly, the final products (charcoal, biogas, wood vinegar, and tar) can be widely used in industries, agriculture, and daily life, etc. This can generate significant profits for investors. Taking both factors into consideration, investing in charcoal making machine offers a promising return on investment.

Available Raw Materials to Make Charcoal

Charcoal is typically produced from organic materials. The process of making charcoal involves heating these organic materials in a low-oxygen environment, a process known as pyrolysis. Here are some common raw materials that can be used to make charcoal:


There are various agricultural and forestry residues can be used for making charcoal. Common ones include coconut shells, fruit husks, and bagasse from the food processing industry. They also include empty fruit bunch(EFB) and palm shells from the palm planting and deep processing industries. Moreover, they include bamboo, sawdust, and wood chips from the gardening and wood processing industry. In addition, straw, rice husks, and elephant grass from agricultural cultivation are also included.

Sewage Sludge

The sludge mainly includes civil sludge, municipal sludge, and industrial sludge. This sludge contains organic matter that can be converted into charcoal.

Related Note: It is not allowed to use the same biomass pyrolysis plant to process raw materials mixed with biomass and sludge. The same type of biomass raw materials can be mixed for processing. Biomass and sludge materials require different carbonization temperatures. It is recommended to use carbonization furnace of different materials for different raw materials to accommodate these varying temperature requirements.

Working Process Description of Charcoal Machine

According to the carbonization requirement, the moisture of raw materials can not be more than 15% and the size can not be larger than 20mm (5-8mm is the best). If the raw materials can not meet the carbonization requirement, it need a dryer or a crusher to improve the working efficiency.

The waste raw materials are transported to the carbonization furnace by the conveyor.

Usually, we begin by using traditional fuels (such as coal, wood, and natural gas) to heat the reactor for 60-90 minutes. When the temperature reaches 150 degrees, some of the raw materials start to decompose into CO, CO2, etc. As the temperature rises to 350 degrees, continuous production of wood charcoal begins. Typically, the carbonization reaction takes approximately 15-25 minutes. After about 30 minutes, a lot of biogas will be generated. So you can control the heating time according to the product you want.

The final product, charcoal, will be cooled by the cooling system. Its temperature will be reduced to below 45 ° C. Then the charcoal will be collected directly and safely.

The dedusting system (cyclone dust remover, spray dust collector, etc.) will remove harmful components such as sulfur from the biogas. Then the clean biogas is condensed into tar and wood vinegar through a condenser.

Advantages of Beston Charcoal Machinery for Sale

High efficiency and low operating cost

The coconut shell/rice husk/bamboo/sawdust charcoal making machine uses the gas produced during carbonization to heat the dryer, achieving a utilization rate of over 90%. The system has adopted a strict insulation system and continuous operation pattern. This design can minimize heat loss, ultimately reducing operating costs.

Multiple security design

The triple-seal design enhances airtightness. The explosion-proof device at the furnace end prevents explosions. The closed-air feeding system enhances safety. The thermal linear expansion design prevents derailment. Multiple pressure and temperature sensors provide feedback for safer operation.

Circular economy and pollution-free

The charcoal production plant is the intermediate part of biomass energy sustainable utilization and development system. The cooling system uses indirect cooling, without generating any pollutant emissions.

Rich and cheap raw materials

The machine can dispose of various kinds of materials, such as straw, sawdust, palm shells, sugarcane bagasse, coffee grounds, edible fungus waste, sewage sludge, etc. These common and cheap raw materials in our daily life reduce the project cost.

High market profits

The current prices of biomass charcoal, tar, and wood vinegar are high in the market, so the machine has a variety of incomes.

High calorific value of gas

The calorific value of gas is three times of ordinary straw gas, which can not only improve the working efficiency but also save much cost for investors.
