Secret of Palm Kernel Shell into Charcoal – Pyrolysis Technology

The key to converting palm kernel shells into charcoal is pyrolysis technology. Pyrolysis is a thermochemical decomposition of organic material at high temperatures in the absence of oxygen. In the case of palm kernel shells, this process typically involves heating the shells in a controlled environment to high temperatures, usually around 400-600 degrees Celsius. During pyrolysis, the complex organic compounds in the palm kernel shells break down into simpler molecules, including gases, liquids, and solid char. The solid char is the palm kernel shell charcoal we need. Here is the general production process of palm shell charcoal machine.

  • Firstly, convey palm shells into the pyrolysis reactor through the belt conveyor or manual operation for heating by high temperature.
  • Secondly, start the combustion chamber to heat the pyrolysis reactor and palm shells. Generally, around 380 and 450 degrees Celsius, the palm shell undergoes a series of complex chemical reactions and then breaks down into charcoal, tar, wood vinegar, and syngas. The time will last 15 minutes.
  • Thirdly, the pyrolysis reaction will be accompanied by syngas recycling. Some syngas are generated when it reach the related temperature. After dust removal, the syngas are returned directly to the combustion chamber as fuel.
  • Fourthly, flue gas is emitted after multiple dedusting treatments, which can meet EU environment protection standards.

FAQ of Palm Kernel Shell into Charcoal Project

1. Is Any Preparation Needed Before Running Palm Shell Charcoal Making Machine?

  • Drying: Palm kernel shells typically contain higher moisture content, which needs to be reduced to less than 10% to achieve optimal pyrolysis.
  • Crushing: Palm kernel shells are usually large and hard. Crushing the shells into smaller pieces before pyrolysis ensures thorough carbonization and enhances charcoal quality.

2. How Much Charcoal Can Be Obtained from 1 Ton of Palm Kernel Shells?
If the material moisture content is around 10%, the carbonization rate is about 3:1, meaning that 1 ton of dry materials can get about 330kg of charcoal. If the moisture content exceeds 30%, then subtracting the weight of the moisture from the raw material and dividing by three will roughly give the carbonization rate. (This data is an estimate; actual testing may vary.)

Ps: This same rule applies to wood charcoal making machine, coconut shell charcoal machine, rice hull charcoal machine, etc.

3. Where to Collect Waste Palm Kernel Shell?
Palm trees are mainly grown in Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Nigeria, and Colombia. These countries have already occupied more than 85 % of the total global palm oil production. You can collect large amounts of waste palm kernel shells in these countries.
