Recycling Solution for Wood Processing Waste in South Africa: Making Charcoal
Sawdust, a wood processing waste, is difficult to use sustainably in South Africa. It is often used directly as fuel or processed into sheets. However, this South African customer found a more environmentally friendly sawdust disposal solution from Beston Group: making charcoal. Here are the advantages of using sawdust to make charcoal.
Direct burning of sawdust releases gases and particulate matter that can have a negative impact on the environment. Sawdust charcoal releases less gas when burned and produces less ash than direct combustion. In addition, its caloric value is usually higher. This South African customer discovered the advantages of sawdust charcoal and sold it as barbecue charcoal to earn more income.
Sawdust charcoal can be used as a soil conditioner. Adding charcoal to soil helps improve the structure, water retention, and fertility of the soil. In addition, this amendment provides crops with the nutrients they need to grow. The South African customer also plans to apply the high-quality sawdust charcoal produced by the machine to agricultural production.
In addition to sawdust, a variety of wood processing wastes can be used to make charcoal. They include log waste, sawn wood waste, furniture processing waste and municipal garden waste, etc. They can also get more value from making charcoal.
