Ever-increasing European environmental standards have forced charcoal producers to modify their production methods in order to conform to new regulations.
At the beginning of the '90s, there were basically two processes :
Nevertheless, over 95% of the world's charcoal production uses the partial combustion process. In consequence, the development of more efficient equipment with a lower cost becomes an urgent necessity.
LRCB Développement (ex JCKB International), in partnership with a charcoal manufacturer and the CIRAD (International Center for Cooperation in Agricultural Research), have been developing and installing a new clean technology for the production of charcoal : The CML process.
What's more, the waste gas de-pollution system generates large amounts of heat. This heat is recovered and can be used either directly for drying, or for the production of electricity.
