Carbonized briquettes burn cleaner than wood or dry biomass, producing higher temperatures. It is cheaper to carry and store
Carbonized briquettes offer health benefits, due to reduced smoke levels, cleaner combustion, and easier handling.
Charcoal has a relatively low moisture content (in the range of 3 to 10%). The calorific content of charcoal is related to the amount of carbon fixed and depends strongly on the carbonization temperature. It varies between 27 and 33 MJ/kg.
The fines and broken parts do not exceed 10% of the product during packaging and no foreign matter is tolerated.
The fixed carbon expressed on the dry matter of the briquettes is more than 65%
The total moisture content does not exceed 8%.
Carbonized briquettes are characterized by a long burning time 2-6 hours/kg
