Step 1 Prepare Enough Raw Materials

The raw materials that can be used to make charcoal include three categories: waste biomass, municipal sludge, solid waste and other wastes.
There are abundant waste biomass for charcoal production in Kenya, such as rice husks, bagasse, coffee husks, wheat straw, etc. Municipal sludge and solid waste have been harming Kenya’s environment. Carbonization is a way to achieve both environmental and economic benefits. The reuse of this waste also helps to promote sustainable development in Kenya.

Dryer in Kenya

Charcoal production in Kenya has moisture requirements for raw materials. If the moisture content of the raw material is high, it will affect the quality of the charcoal. If your raw material contains more than 15% moisture, please contact Beston to equip you with a dryer. Each dryer can reduce the moisture by 30% (2 dryers are required when the moisture content of the material is greater than 45%). If you don’t know how to test the moisture in the raw materials, you can send the raw materials to Beston and get accurate test results.

Crusher in Kenya

We know that the smaller the size of the raw material, the smaller the voids during carbonization, and the smaller the oxygen intake. Since the carbonization process is carried out in the absence of oxygen, the smaller the size of the raw material, the better the carbonization effect. Please see more details on Beston Linkedin.
Generally, the feed size is about 2 cm. If the raw material you are dealing with is larger than 2 cm, please contact Beston to equip you with a crusher. (The best-known feed size is 8mm rice husk)
