CML carbonisation unit
Utilization of an CML plant allows the production of charcoal of a consistent quality whilst respecting the environment. Thanks to its antipollution system, environmental constraints are transformed into opportunities, because the heat produced is used either for wood-drying or for producing electricity.
- Charcoal quality
Quality is consistent and conforms to the national standard AFNOR NF B55 101.
- Respects European environmental standards
- Conforms to Article 27 of French Governmental decree of 20th February 1998
- Efficient treatment of emissions by incineration of fumes, pyrolignous materials, and tars
- Elimination of obnoxious fumes and visual pollution
- Excellent working conditions
Handling operations are mechanized, observation and control of the process is simplified.
- Installations can be customized
Incinerator can service between 4 and 12 kilns. For very large installations, it is possible to install multiple units of 12 kilns.
- Low maintenance costs
Maintenance activity is minimized thanks to a solid construction and the simplicity of operation.
- Low capital costs
- Computer Controlled Production
This system, developed by the C.I.R.A.D., allows continuous monitoring of the carbonisation process, and full control of the production.
- Energy recovery
Recovery of heat energy for wood-drying or electricity generation.
