  • Green charcoal is an economical form of alternative fuel for home cooking and industrial needs. It is a more viable alternative to LPG based cooking. It is a compact solid fuel and is not actually green in color. Its name is derived from its source rather than its appearance. It is a product of various "grassy" or cellulosic materials and enzymes processed and compressed into solid pieces much like conventional charcoal. 
  • Charcoal is the solid residue remaining when wood is "carbonised" or "pyrolysed" under controlled conditions in a closed space such as a charcoal kiln. Control is exercised over the entry of air during the pyrolysis or carbonisation process so that the wood does not merely burn away to ashes, as in a conventional fire, but decomposes chemically to form charcoal. 
  • Briquetting or densification is used to improve characteristics of materials for transport and use as energy source. Raw materials include sawdust, loose crop residues, and charcoal fines. 
  • The shell charcoal is manufactured by burning shells of fully matured nuts in limited supply of air sufficient only for carbonisation, but not for complete destruction.
  • In India the average output in the traditional method has been found to be 35 kg of charcoal from 1000 whole shells or about 30,000 whole shells yield 1 tonne of charcoal.
  • The characteristics of charcoal products (lump, briquette or extruded forms) vary widely from product to product. Thus it is a common misconception to stereotype any kind charcoal, saying which burns hotter, etc.
  • One of the most important historical applications of wood charcoal is as a constituent of gunpowder. It is also used in metallurgical operations as a reducing agent, but its application has been diminished by the introduction of coke, anthracite smalls, etc. 
  • Green-waste charcoal has the potential to be used in high-value markets and sold as barbecue fuel, a soil amendment, a digestive health aid, for steel or metal production and to manufacture activated carbons used to purify water. 
  • The markets in the Cement City are Xipamanine, Bazar Central, Mafalala, Janet, Malhangalene dey Povo, and Urbanizacao. Mercado Xipamanine is the largest charcoal market; here around 70 charcoal retailers are located. At the other markets, the number of retailers fluctuates between 15 and 35.
  • At present more than 60% of the briquetting plants are located in the states of Gujarat, Punjab and Tamil Nadu, about 30% plants are located in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Karnataka and rest in Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh.
